Now, onto the real party, down in the cellar;
Waifs & Strays (Hot Creations / Lower East)
Ben & Tom Worton
Waifs & Strays are Amos Nelson and Rich Beanland. A duo born out of diverse musical backgrounds but brought together by a love of house music, pure and simple.
Their debut track – 2010’s late night ‘3am’ – was rapidly snapped up for Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom imprint, and set the benchmark high for future success; featuring in DJ Mag’s essential releases, and picking up props from major players including Luciano, DJ T, Anja Schneider, dOP, Danny Tenaglia and Laurent Garnier.
The follow-up record ‘Yeah Yeah’, gathered significant international support following its debut at the last year’s Detroit Music Conference, smashing dancefloors from Fabric to Watergate, featuring first on Heidi’s show and then becoming Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune.
2011 has seen tracks and remixes on the likes of Get Physical, Hot Creations, Leftroom and Futureboogie, with tracks included for Matt Tolfrey’s ‘Five Years Of Leftroom’, Heidi’s critically acclaimed ‘Jackathon’ and Jamie Jones’s ‘Fabric 59’ compilations. With a host of gigs beckoning across the country and their residency at Bristol’s super-hot after-ours The Breakfast Club, it’s now time to take in some Waifs & Strays.
