Daddy’s Groove is a talented dance music trio from Italy. Gianni Romano, Carlo Grieco, and Peppe Folliero formed the group after many years of DJing throughout the south of Italy, becoming a firm favourite thanks to their creative instinct for mixing and knack for working a crowd. They soon became familiar with the Italian club scene and after only a few months were approached by a selection of renowned, highly regarded independent labels and asked to come on board as new producers.
Daddy’s Groove have since released a huge catalogue of tracks over the last few years all backed by influential DJs and picked up by major club labels like Axtone, JackBack, Defected, Spinnin’, Doorn Records and Ultra Records.
After remix duties for Axwell and David Guetta amongst others, 2012 saw the groups first major release spree, with several tracks breaking the Beatport Top 100 chart including “Unbelievable” (ft. Rob Adans), which hit no.2, “Stellar” that went to no.3, as well as “Vertigo” (ft. Cryogenix) and “Tilt” which both peaked at no. 4.
As well as their original works and remixes, the trio have also turned their hands to producing for the likes of Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and David Guetta – contributing to tracks on Britney’s “Britney Jean”, Gaga’s “Artpop” and Guetta’s “Nothing But The Beat”.
Daddy’s Groove also continue tour worldwide, playing some of the world’s largest and most sought after dates, including Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Masquerade Motel’ and David Guetta’s ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ parties in both Ibiza and Miami, as well as headlining nights at Ministry Of Sound, Las Vegas’ Marquee Day Club, Zouk Singapore and Pacha Sydney. The trio also joined Tomorrowland’s famous main stage alongside David Guetta, Afrojack and Nicky Romero for a special debut performance of “Surrender” (ft. Mindshake) in 2013.
2014 saw Daddy’s Groove return to the upper echelons of the Beatport Top 100 once again, this time with ‘Synthemilk’ – a track co-produced alongside fellow Italian artist Congorock – peaking at no.3. Further collaborations with Nari & Miani on the excellent ‘Big Love To The Bass’ and ‘Pulse’ – a track that broke into the top 10 of the iTunes Dance Chart – were also critically well received. The trio also lent their hand to mixing a number of tracks on David Guetta’s latest album ‘Listen’, as well as assisting with additional production across the LP.
Looking ahead, whilst Daddy’s Groove definitely remain a trio, Gianni and Peppe have decided to focus on the production after years of extensive touring, while Carlo continues to represent Daddy’s Groove live on stage.
