Since 2009, Groove Odyssey’s contribution to the Soulful House scene has been unparalleled. Relentlessly curating some of the best musical showcases around, Groove Odyssey brings together people of all ages and backgrounds united by their love of real house music.
Headlining The Box will be one half of the imitable Masters At Work, the one and only Louie Vega. Playing a very special Birthday Set, expect this to be an emotional affair. Constantly reinventing himself, Louie has crafted some of the most innovative singles in dance music history, "The Nervous Track", "It’s Alright (I Feel It)" and "I Can’t Get No Sleep", kick started genres like soulful house, "Beautiful People", "I Get Lifted" and revitalised the careers of legends like Roy Ayers, George Benson and Tito Puente with his Masters At Work partnership with Kenny Dope. On the decks he defiantly mixes everything he can find – house, hip-hop, funk, disco, Latin, African and jazz – into a universal groove that defines how we enjoy dance music.
As part of Masters At Work, the legendary NYC DJ & Production duo of Louie Vega and Kenny Dope, Louie has shepherded dance music down new paths with an inventive production style and imaginative feel for different musical forms. The two native New Yorkers have amassed an overwhelming body of work, one that includes hundreds of original productions, remixes and side projects, redefining the way we think of music in clubs.
Joining Louie Vega in The Box will be a very special guest to be announced and of course, Groove Odyssey residents and UK soulful house pioneers Bobby & Steve. From warehouse parties in the eighties, to soul weekenders in the nineties, Bobby & Steve sure know how to work a crowd. There is no doubt that the two have created a timeless legacy, and a chance to see them play in Ministry of Sound legendary main room should not be missed.
The 103 will be in full swing with classic house gems fired up by original house DJ Paul Trouble Anderson, joining Mike Risk, LongPlay, Able and Sol Brown.
Meanwhile, the Baby Box will deliver a bubblin’ room of 80s & 90s soul, r&b and boogie classics with DJ Bigger, Ronnie Herel and Lloyd Life, Sammy Confunktion and Colin Williams, whilst in The Loft, leading radio station Housefm.Net DJs play the best in deep house sounds.
