New York, NY - The much-anticipated 2007 Global Groove Tour is officially underway, and Centaur is thrilled to announce the release of "Global Groove: Live," the official CD of the Tour mixed by Dj David Knapp. "Global Groove: Live" becomes the 28th volume in the Global Groove CD series, with many music highlights taken directly from the Global Groove Tour, including the exclusive new dance mix of the multiple Grammy Award winning song,
"Not Ready To Make Nice."

"David has once again delivered an upbeat mix that will go down as one of the classic Global Groove CDs," says Centaur's Chief Operating Officer, Jamie Baxter. "The track selection is a perfect blend of new songs and familiar favorites, and there is no question the dance artists included are among the best in the business."

The similar philosophy and long-standing relationship that David Knapp has with Centaur is truly the magic behind every one of his compilation mixes. David is not restricted to one style of music, and his sets are in small ways catered to his audience, always offering his crowd something that makes them feel recognized and sprinkling in tracks that people already know and love. Not without his signature beats and diva-driven vocals, David has constructed his new "Global Groove: Live" CD with this philosophy in mind, including exclusive songs and mixes for added enjoyment.

"Global Groove has become a gay household name I am proud to represent," says Dj David Knapp. "The brand is successful thanks to the quality of the music and Djs. The Global Groove series is the best opportunity a Dj has to bring dance music to so many different people in the gay community."

"Global Groove: Live" features highly recognized exclusive tracks that are re-energized into dance mixes, including the recent Grammy-winning Dixie Chicks' original, "Not Ready To Make Nice," and the Billy Davis classic , "Your Love Is Lifting Me Higher." Also featured are Billboard #1 songs "Party People" and "It's Not Right But It's Okay," and new songs from six international #1 artists, including Sonique, Pepper MaShay, Offer Nissim, Suzanne Palmer and Joi Cardwell.
