      In line with KaiAlce's comment, 'The Bounce' is an off-cut / track derived from the same session as the Incognito 'Everyday' remixes of the same year. 'Mels Dub' & the 'Everydub' mixes ( are essential!!

        Gimme Groove samples Archie Bell & The Drells - Let’s Groove 1975

          'Gimme Groove' shares similarities with Kenny Dope's remix of 'Magic' by Allstar Madness which was released a year later

            I’m not sure it’s possible to overrate The Bounce. Pure. Deep. Magic...... and one of the best instrumental tracks out of the MAW studio,

              I'm actually in agreement with a couple of the other posters who say that the 'Bounce' is over rated. I will not, however, hear a word said against 'Gimme Groove' which is a monumental deep house record. You can't knock it one bit.

                I am pretty sure I have heard a couple of DJs - Chez D, Honey D, among them - slay down a sax edit of The Bounce Does anybody know what track I am referring to? I've searched for it far and long and can't find it.

                  the name "the bounce" could not fit better - the best as house can get.
                  groovy as hell, not movin' & shakin' to this is almost a crime.

                    "The Bounce" contains samples of "Sparque - Take Some Time" (1984).

                      In addition to the other review MAW's, I'm assuming original idea for Bounce which I feel really captures they're experimental side was their Dub from Incognito's Everyday 12" on Talking Loud.
