Groove Coverage tour since 2002, interrupted, under the permanent moth „Millennium Worldtour“ & „Heroes of the 2000s“ through the world and inspire, no matter whether club appearance, festival show, or concert hall the masses.

In addition, they are constantly working on new songs, but currently have no time pressure on publications after 22 single releases & 4 studio albums.


The German dance-pop act, GROOVE COVERAGE, founded back in 1999 by DJ Novus and Axel Konrad, reached the first club and dance charts in the first two club releases („Hit me“ & „Are u Ready“, Universal Music) Germany, Austria & Poland.
Thus, the young team from Germany made in the last rapid of the 90s and at the latest in the early, extremely successful, 2000s attention. Since 2002, GROOVE COVERAGE, to which singer Mell, Producer Ole Wierk & Lou Bega (#1 Worldhit „Mambo No. 5“ as an songwriter (Song: „God is a Girl“)  has joined in 2001, is undoubtedly one of the most influential, successful and important acts of the 2000s.

The absolute breakthrough came in 2002, overnight, as no one at that time, the young DJ Kombo from Landshut / Ingolstadt (Germany) would have dreamed of. The release of the single „Moonlight Shadow“, a dance version of the 80s Mike Oldfield classic broke all records set up so far. The 3rd single of GROOVE COVERAGE stood for weeks on # 3 of the German single sales charts (Media Control), led over months the Top10 of all club, dance, and radio charts, reached gold status in 2003 and should ultimately be the starting signal for more than 2 decades, with 20 single releases and over 13 million records sold worldwide, is a hugely successful band history.

The musical concept, new, brilliant and at the same time successful: A unique sense for mostly melancholic hit-hooklines, combined with pumping beats led to the idea of a national dance act at the top of national as well as international charts, events and the worldwide “ Millennium-Worldtour „.

GROOVE COVERAGE are also frontier workers. They love to transmit melodies from very different genres, worldwide popular hits, in their own way to a new generation, and now 2 generations, danceable:
„POISON“ (Alice Cooper), „21st Century“ (Bad Religion), „She“ (German Christmas Song „Stern über Bethlehem“), „On the Radio“, or „Holy Virgin“ (Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung). All of her singles and albums reached top positions in the charts of the 2002-2010s, first nationally and then internationally.

„Moonlight Shadow“, „God Is a Girl“, „POISON“, „7 Years & 50 Days“, „Runaway“, „She“, „Angeline“, or the re-release (2018) of „God is a Girl „, together with the Dutch EDM DJ Duo W&W, and many others of the meanwhile 22 GROOVE COVERAGE Single Release, are world hits and so it is no surprise which awards GROOVE COVERAGE won in just two decades.

Concerning the international marketing of GROOVE COVERAGE, the team of producers, , the management and bookingteam, a hitherto rather unconventional way. Instead of assigning the rights globally to a large, global operating company, as usual, one sought worldwide independent and usually smaller partners, with the goal of a long, lasting over 1-2 hit singles, cooperation. This concept proved to be a perfect construct in the following years.

This strategy of direct contact with licensees, label partners and event organizers formed the healthy basis for worldwide success, which now lasts over two decades. So GROOVE COVERAGE drove countless chart successes worldwide and toured since 2002 interrupted and now with over 5000 played shows in the following countries:
Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, France, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Holland, Belgium, England, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Estonia, UK, Hungary, Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, Brazil, Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, Africa, Malaysia, Thailand, South Africa, Canada, USA, Russia, Australia, New Zealand & China.

What was planned in 2015, when a 6-month „Millennium Worldtour“-Special was planned, has long been extended to the present day, inspiring the masses, whether at festivals, clubs or in concert halls.
90 minutes of full power of the singer Mell & DJ Novus, including all GROOVE COVERAGE hits and of course the greatest hits of the incredibly successful 2000s, as they have shaped singer Mell & DJ Novus itself!
