After the success of their first 2 events together with Cyril Hahn & Tensnake, the Loud Entertainment and Vanishing Point boys have teamed up again to bring you one of house music’s hottest acts right now – Waze & Odyssey: an nothing better than a good old Good Friday day party.

It began with a meeting at the end of 2011 and has evolved into a partnership based on classic house music, ingenuity, innovation and creating those unforgettable moments of joy, euphoria and pure, unadulterated fun. It’s been just over two years since that first meeting and, in that time, Waze & Odyssey have performed at some of the world’s most influential club spaces; Panorama Bar (Berlin), fabric (London), Warehouse Project (Manchester), Chibuku (Liverpool), Monarch (San Fran), Arma 17 (Moscow) and many more.

In tandem with their globetrotting DJ schedule, they have also been responsible for a series of releases that have established them as a force to be reckoned with. Influential labels such as Wolf Music, Lets Play House, Tsuba and Throne of Blood have signed their tracks, as well as the duo releasing music via their own W&O Street Tracks label. Meanwhile their talents have also been employed to remix acts such as Disclosure, Duke Dumont and T.E.E.D.

Which brings us to their latest ubiquitous piece of work, the reworking of R.Kelly’s classic ‘Bump N Grind’. A prime example of how the art of sampling can be applied to create an entirely new and fresh piece of music, their mix first came into being after the duo heard the acapella. It wasn’t long before they’d taken it into their studio and got to work on adding parts from a house music classic. Initially only intended for use in their sets as a ‘DJ tool’, the track was passed on to Skream who rocked Warehouse Project with it, then it was their friends Bicep who got hold of it, followed by highly-respected tastemakers such as Oneman and Horse Meat Disco. Curiosity about the track soon reached fever pitch, with requests for the mysterious record flying in from the crowds at every gig they played. The only answer was to give it an official release, and so ‘Waze & Odyssey vs R Kelly – Bump & Grind 2014’ is here!

Accompanied by Melbourne’s own Jack Love, Butters, Tim Koren, Paradime, Will Cooper, Max Mckay, Corey Ryan, Metwally, Christian Hendy, Macca Mac, Jack Howell, Ben Mac, Jiay Mills, Pete Large, Tim Murphy, Ed Wilks, Ben & Bijan, Alex & Lewis, Joel Brooker, Scotty & Greeny, Ceramix, Oskar Long & Lachlan Ritchie.
