Class, consistency, forward thinking, and an unbridled passion for quality house music define the essence of MoreHouse Records co-founder Evan Landes (aka Groove Junkies, Nimble Digits). His desire to enlighten and ultimately transform new listeners into loyal followers on a global level has been his mission since the label's inception. Evan's strategy of releasing an eclectic array of intoxicating dance grooves which are not bound by any gimmicky trends and memorable songs that stand the test of time, has paid off since MoHo's doors first opened in 2002. A brilliant collective of singers, musicians, writers & producers, who are featured throughout Groove Junkies impressive catalog have helped define the "MoHo Sound". Within the genre of House music, each unique release can run the gamut stylistically - ranging from organic soul, funk, afro, latin, jazz and gospel drenched songs, to peak hour, deep, tribal, and electronic influenced tracks.

In addition to co-owning the label with wife and recording artist Solara since 2002, he's helped coordinate over 60 successful releases on the MoreHouse imprint, including numerous chart topping hits.

In October 2010 his critically acclaimed artist album "In The Zone" shot up to the #1 position on the Top 100 Album Downloads chart on Traxsource.com within 4 days and received 'Album of the Year & Month' kudos from numerous industry publications. His body of work has garnered DJ support from industry legends such as Frankie Knuckles, Louie Vega, David Morales, Roger Sanchez, Ben Watt, Joey Negro and Tony Humphries to name a few.
