An authority on dance music
Groove Attack Record Store is a temple of good taste in more ways than one. Located in the basement of Monsieur Courbet, a high-end gentlemen’s apparel store (www.facebook.com/Monsieur-Courbet), shoppers can select a few choice pieces of clubwear before heading downstairs to browse the soul, funk, hip-hop, reggae and ska selection in Groove Attack’s minimalist basement space. The vinyl on offer also includes various subgenres of electronic music. And despite Groove Attack’s infallible instinct for up-to-the-minute trends in contemporary dance music, it more than deserves its long-standing reputation as an authority on dance music, which dates back to when Spex still had its Cologne offices and Cologne was the music capital of Germany. Not much has changed since then.
