Following their roadblock Easter party, Groove Odyssey return to Ministry of Sound on Bank Holiday Sunday to present House Legends
London’s original soulful house night has lined up an amazing feast of classic house, soul, funk, and real deep house from the legendary American house DJs, Joe Claussell, and DJ Spen, backed up by UK legends Jazzie B, Bobby & Steve, and Paul Trouble Anderson.
Headlining in The Box will be Joe Claussell, the Brooklyn DJ and founder of eclectic world house labels Spiritual Life, Sacred Rhythm and Ibadan Records. In 1996, Joe joined Francois K and Danny Krivit to play for the Legendary Sunday afternoon NYC party Body & Soul, which became one of the most revered house music parties the world over. As a musician, Joe is currently playing alongside the mind blowing pianist/keyboardist extraordinaire Bugge Wesseltoft, in a band that includes Erik Truffaz, Ilhan Ersahin, Med Band and Torun Erikse.
Also in the spotlight is DJ Spen, the Baltimore DJ who came to prominence with Basement Boys and Jasper Street Company. In 2004, Spen co-founded the Code Red label, which was in partnership with Defected Records. He later joined the group The Muthafunkaz, releasing the album The MuthaLode, and also set up the Spiritually Sound label.
Joining them in The Box will be UK soulful house pioneers Bobby & Steve. From warehouse parties in the eighties, to soul weekenders in the nineties, Bobby & Steve sure know how to get a crowd going. There is no doubt that the two have created a timeless legacy, and a chance to see them play should not be missed.
Room 103 will be in full swing with classic house gems fired up by original house DJ Paul Trouble Anderson, joining Neil Pierce, Matt L-S & Jamsey, Funky P and Sol Brown. Meanwhile, the Baby Box will deliver a bubblin’ room of 80s & 90s soul, r&b and boogie classics headlined by Soul II Soul’s Jazzie B, DJ Bigger, Ronnie Herel and Lloyd Life and Selly J whilst in The Loft, leading radio station Housefm.Net DJs play the best in deep house sounds.
