House collective Greenskeepers inject fun and guitars into dance music on their new album. 'Polo Album' hits shelves later this month.
Greenskeepers are a four-piece dance collective from Chicago who fuse live music and club house with the aim of bringing fun to the dancefloor. Think guitar-driven hooks and quirky vocals. Originally signed to Derrick Carter's Classic imprint, second album 'Pleetch' spawned the big single 'Keep it Down' which included remixes by Radio Slave and Rob Mello.
Latest album 'Polo Club is the culmination of the band's last two years on the road and closely reflects their live performances. “We wanted to focus on working within the band itself and making a record that showcases what we do live,” says Greenskeepers member James Curd. “When we sat down and thought of how we wanted the new record to sound we all agreed it would be fun to use 'Lotion' as our starting point. We kept telling ourselves, ‘More Guitars!’”
The album comes with a bonus disc of Greenskeepers remixes and original tracks mixed by James Curd.
The first single off the album 'Polo Club/15 Minutes' will include remixes by The Rapture, Tommie Sunshine and Derrick Carter.
