Heatwave, one of the most popular Soul bands of the past few decades, with their inimitable blend of sweet Soul grooves and great Pop/Soul/Dance songs are back with a vengeance.
 
Although based in Britain, Heatwave was formed by the Wilder brothers, Johnnie and Keith, on their discharge from the US  Army, an advert in a music paper  yielded Hull's, England born songwriter Rod Temperton,
 
With hits like 'Mind Blowing Decisions', 'Boogie Nights' and the all-time classic 'Always And Forever', Heatwave are no strangers to chart success with a string of hits reaching the top twenty, and the foot stomping 'Boogie Nights' climbing all the way to number one in 1977, Heatwave were on "The Word" and "The Lily Savage T.V. Show" plus in 97 they were on channel five's "Night Fever Show" and have done “The Diamond Music Awards T.V. Show” in Belgium. So far this year the band have done “The Clive James T.V. Show” on I.T.V. channel 1, and had a half page write up in the “Times Newspaper”.
 
Rod Templeton the bands keyboard player and the bands main songwriter wrote  songs for Michael Jackson, {including the multi-million selling title to Michaels album  "Thriller"} George Benson and Herbie Hancock. Heatwave recorded two more albums, 'Current' and 'Candles' spurning the hits:  'Gangsters Of The Groove' and 'Jitterbugin'.  They recently  re-record the very best of their songs from the late 70's and early 80's with the best of today's producers and DJ's.  The line-up of producers include: Aswad, Norman Cook, Simon Harris, and Ben Liebrand.
 
Everything has been re-recorded with the Soul essence of yesteryear and the hard funkiness of the 90's.  NOTHING HAS BEEN REMIXED!
 
The album 'Gangsters Of The Groove - The 90's Mix' is a fourteen track album with four brand new songs produced and written by Heatwave.  It has the sweet Ohio sound
reminiscent in many ways of the great Soul groups of the early 80's such as The O'Jays, The Whispers and Levert, mixed with a melodic European influence.
 
The new songs on the album show a definite step forward in style. "The whole purpose of putting the new songs on the album is to show people that we're not just banking off the old songs, which have been re-recorded anyway", says Keith Wilder.
 
Based in the UK and the USA the band love the spontaneity of playing live and will be embarking on a tour.
 
So what more could you ask for? Serious production, soaring vocals and oooodles of talent. It's all there already ....  Nuff said!
