Avant Garde - Get Down

"Get down, get all the way down. Get your feet back on the ground. That was Avant Garde's slogan at the end of the 90's.

Not much is know about this group. The only thing I could find anywhere was at Discogs.com. From that web site, Avant Garde consisted of DJ Maui, Jerry Ropero & Terri Bjerre.

This song was their only appearance on Billboard's Hot Dance/Disco chart. I'm suprised at this since their sound is very similar to that of Daft Punk. Maybe it was so similar that people thought is was them. Anyway, it was released in 1999 and was one of the biggest dance songs of that year peaking at #12. If you like Daft Punk, be sure to check out this song. It's one of my favorites!
