Dig (Directions in Groove) is a multi award winning band from Sydney Australia,
emerging from Sydney's happening club scene in the early 90's.
The band began with a residency at Kinselas in Taylors Square. The audience grew exponentially
week by week leading to a self financed recording which became the largest selling australian
EP up until that time. It contained the hit 'Re-invent Yourself'. Touring soon followed and Dig attracted large crowds.

Dig (Directions in Groove) signed to Polygram (Universal) and released the album 'Deeper'
on ID in Australia and Verve Forecast internationally. The album debuted at #6 nationally
and soon earned gold status. Deeper's most played tracks were 'The Favourite', 'Dreamtlme' and
the re-released remix of 'Re-Invent Yourself' All three were played in high rotation on 2JJJ.
Dig crossed over into the mainstream with their mix of jazz, dance, old school funk and electronica.

There were some very cool remixes by DJ Krush (Dreamtime), Mo'Wax (Upside), Paul Mac (The Favourite).

Dig (Directions in Groove) toured asia, north america and europe including the Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Festival and
Phoenix festival, appearing on the same stage as Herbie Hancock, Bootsy Collins and The Roots. Dig also played in the Acid Jazz scene supporting Us3, Galliano, The Groove Collective, Corduroy,The Young Disciples, appearing at club and festival shows with Norman Jay and Giles Peterson. Dig played many sell out shows at The Basement back in Sydney and invited british instrumental artists Gerard Presencer and Steve Williamson as guests.

Two more albums followed; 'Speakeasy' and 'Curvystrasse', through which Dig (Directions in Groove) evolved to incorporate
new grooves, putting drum'n'bass and trip hop into the mix.

Rolling Stone magazine once stated: "dig are the future of Australian music. They know what to do and how to do it."
