After Canal Mills’ first event of the 2014/15 year that welcomed Duke Dumont and plenty more, the mill will open back up on Saturday the 11th of October for an event curated by Waze & Odyssey, one of the UK's most prominent duos in house music at this current stage.
First stepping into the limelight around 2 years ago, Waze & Odyssey grew from their earlier singles and EP’s that include ‘I Want You You You’, a track that was played heavily in clubs, and their remix of TEED’s ‘Your Love’, also a club favourite. Since their talents were noticed they have been signed to several high profile labels including Kerri Chandler’s MadTech and Tsuba, aside from starting up their own imprint W&O Street Tracks that has released a series of dance floor heavies from the likes of Citizen and Ejeca. The pair will be descending upon Canal Mills on the 11th of October to play for Leeds’ bustling, energetic crowd, bringing with them a hoard of friends to complete what is a hefty line up indeed.
The first guest is chart topper Paul Woolford whose track Untitled became rife in clubs this year before reaching a high position in the charts after being given a repaint with a catchy vocal. The Leeds based producer has released music on Hotflush and 2020 Vision amongst many other labels and a fair few will also know him by his other alias, Special Request.
Next up is Ejeca, the tough house DJ whose garage infected, chunky rhythm has spread to dance floors all over the country and further, winning him gigs across the globe at countless clubs and music festivals.
The third guest who will join Waze & Odyssey at Canal Mills is Citizen, a fellow friend who has also released music on Kerri Chandler’s MadTech, a label many of these guys are related through, as well as the headliners own W&O Street Tracks. PBR Streetgang are next on the bill, another duo who are from the bubbling musical community of Leeds. Bouncy releases on Futureboogie, Hot Creations and Thorne Of Blood have helped them climb the musical ladder and become highly in demand all over the country. Bristol based Outboxx, Mike Jones and Grainger are also on the line up, rounding off what will be a great night of music.
