Groove Odyssey 7th birthday Saturday 12th Nov 2016

On Saturday 12th November, Groove Odyssey returns to Ministry of Sound with one half of Masters At Work, the one and only, Kenny Dope.

Since 2009, Groove Odyssey has continued to curate some of the best musical showcases around and has become the leader of the pack when it comes to soulful house nights in London. Groove Odyssey relentlessly brings together people of all ages and backgrounds united by their love of one great thing… real house music.

Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez is one of the most prolific artists of the modern music age. The four time Grammy nominated musical genius has been entertaining and astounding the masses alike with his fusions of house, hip-hop, Latin, jazz and funk & soul for 20 years. Known as a living encyclopedia of beats, Kenny is a purveyor of sonic masterpieces.

As part of Masters At Work, the legendary NYC DJ & Production duo of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega, Kenny 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 Kenny in The Box is Bobby & Steve. It wouldn’t be a party without the GO residents, and the duo sure do know how to work the crowd. There is no doubt that the two have created a timeless legacy and we cannot wait to witness them showcasing their craft in November.

 

 

Leroy Burgess will play a very special Live PA, with the Harlem born vocalist a member of Black Ivory who scored hits including "Don't Turn Around", "You And I" and "I'll Find A Way (The Loneliest Man In Town. Flip through any old stack of underground disco and boogie vinyl released between the late '70s and mid-'80s and if the name Leroy Burgess isn't in the credits of at least one out of the first 50 you scan, consider it a fluke.

 

Also joining in on the fun are Jazzie B of Soul II Soul fame, Opolopo and Groove Assassin makes his debut in The Box. GO regulars Martin Lodge, Funkie P and Sol Brown also play. See you on the dance floor!
