Groove Odyssey returns to London with a series launch on Easter Bank Holiday Sunday 5 April at Ministry of Sound. Headlining the event will be the Nuyorican Soul man, Louie Vega, with residents Bobby & Steve joined by CJ Mackintosh, Atjazz, Phil Asher, DJ Bigger and more.
A heavyweight of soulful house music, Louie Vega 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’, as well as revitalising the careers of legends Roy Ayers, George Benson and Tito Puente as Masters At Work with Kenny ‘Dope’ Gonzalez. He mixes everything he can find – house, hip-hop, funk, disco, Latin, African and jazz – into a universal groove.
Joining Louie in The Box is the UK’s premier producer & DJ, Atjazz, known for original albums ‘That Something’, ‘Labfunk’ and ‘Labresults’. Atjazz has reworked songs for artists such as Zed Bias, Jazzanova, Bob Sinclar, Nitin Sawhney & Omar, and continues to run his Atjazz label. GO residents Bobby & Steve are also on the decks in main room.
Room 103 will be in full swing with classic house gems fired up by West London’s original Restless Soul giant, Phil Asher, joining original Ministry Of Sound residents CJ Mackintosh, Kane FM’s Jazzy M, plus Martin Lodge and Sol Brown.
