Named after the production team with the same name and abbreviated GGM, Groove Groove Melody is an Italian dance label originally manufactured and distributed by Severo Lombardoni’s Discomagic Records. Content that was not licensed from other labels was published by Gli Gnomi Edizioni Musicali S.r.l., and the soon after the label was formed, Seven Inch Ltd. London was set up as a production company and rights holder.
GGM survived the split-up of Discomagic in 1997, becoming a trademark of Seven Inch, distributed by Self Distribuzione (co-founded by Severo’s brother, Vittorio, who was already responsible for Italian Coordination). It also appeared to form new alliances with Heavy Music Ltd. / Heavy Records, a sublabel of Pan Pot, itself a subsidiary of the now-defunct Dig-It International. These bonds have survived to the present day, as old Heavy, Pan Pot and GGM releases have been reissued digitally on GGM. Recent physical reissues have been cooperations with Time S.p.A.. Copyright strings now also mention yet another company, Tuneless Ltd., alongside Seven Inch.
