IN THE ZONE INCLUDED BONUSES: Special 13 track non-stop continuous play mix and cd insert album artwork.

GJs much anticipated artist album has landed. ESSENTIAL!

Two years in the making - Groove Junkies debut artist album In The Zone is a milestone achievement for venerable Los Angeles by way of NYC Writer, Producer, DJ Evan Landes. The evolution of his artistry is on full display as Zone showcases a diverse musical, rhythmic and lyrical palette which isnt bound by any of todays passing trends. GJ signature soul drenched dance grooves and hybrid funk are in abundance, although a multitude of varied musical influences such as Afro, Jazz, Disco, R&B, Tech House, Gospel and Rock can also be found throughout the well balanced long player. Its clear intent is to move the listener physically with the dancefloor in mind, but also provoke thought with lyrical content that engages you on an emotional level. In an age where so much of todays dance music is perceived as being bland, cookie cutter and forgettable,ITZ dispels that myth by offering a wide range of intelligently crafted songs and tracks which feature an international collective of immensely gifted musicians, vocalists and spoken word artists.

Sixteen tracks in all14 songs (3 of which are GJs classics re-worked, and 3 which are bonus tracks), along with the opening Prelude and Interlude; And a 13 track non-stop continuous play 'bonus mix' version. Now turn down the lights, turn up the volume and enjoy the journey!

Craig Bartlett (Tillate Magazine) - Love it! Fantastic piece of pick as album of the month!

Brian Tappert (traxsource, Soulfuric) - lots of standout cuts like "Far Away," "The White Light," and "Shut Up and Dance." "Deeper" and "Inside My Soul" are still hot!
Roy Morrison Amplifiedsoulnyc blog - Its incredible! Every track & song is a winner, and reflects quality writing....the result is magic.
Tony Garvey (Go-Music Promotions) - Its this flare and feeling for the vibe and spirit of Dance Music that have hypnotized fans, from House Music veterans like myself through to the newly baptized beatfreaks all searching for the ultimate Groove Junkie fix. This is reflected in the Album we have in front of us, a long player that achieves great balance
