Waifs & Strays (Hot Creations, Future boogie)
Roll up, roll up my shimmy waifs, strays and vagabundos.
Do we have a treat for you . . .
Live and direct from fair Glasgow sees a clash of the underground's finest.
Waifs & Strays are Amos Nelson and Rich Beanland. A chance meeting on Bristolâ€™s after-party circuit saw this duoâ€™s musical backgrounds brought together to create the effortlessly eclectic and undeniably unique sound of Waifs & Strays.
Their debut track â€“ 2010â€™s late night â€˜3amâ€™ â€“ was rapidly snapped up for Matt Tolfreyâ€™s Leftroom imprint, and set the benchmark high for future success; featuring in DJ Magâ€™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 â€˜Yeah Yeahâ€™, gathered significant international support following its debut at the last yearâ€™s Detroit Music Conference, smashing dancefloors from Fabric to Watergate. With Heidi calling it â€˜the dirtiest house track I have heard in a very long timeâ€™ and featuring it on her Radio1 show, and set to be one of the must-have releases of 2011.
2011 seen tracks and remixes forthcoming on the likes of Get Physical, Hot Creations, Leftroom and Futureboogie, including exclusive cuts for the â€˜Five Years Of Leftroomâ€™ and Heidiâ€™s hotly anticipated â€˜Jackathonâ€™ compilations, and with a residency at Bristolâ€™s super-hot after-ours The Breakfast Club, itâ€™s time to take in some Waifs & Strays.
