About Us

Illicit Grooves was born in the early 90s as an event with Bob Hill and guest DJs playing Grooves from the Global Leftfield #g4gl.  Borne from the Jazz dance, Acid House and Rare Groove scenes the music policy has always been about playing #AcrossTheTracks with the groove rather than the genre dictating the tune selections.

We promote regular DJ and live music events as well as curating gigs at festivals and bespoke events. Illicit Grooves also guests as part of already established wider nights and weekenders and festivals including Bump n Hustle, The Wilkswood Reggae Festival, the We Out Here Festival and the Funk Kongres in Belgrade.

We also produce The Illicit Grooves Radio Show weekly on Totally Wired Radio broadcast every Sunday from 1pm-3pm (GMT). Listen again and an archive of all our shows are available from our platforms on Soundcloud and Mixcloud.

From Perpignan to Paris,  Bournemouth to Berlin and Belgrade Bob Hill and guests have taken the Illicit Groove sound and made many friends along the way.
