The Hustle

Waifs & Strays first appeared among the new wave of house-leaning producers to emerge from Bristol's ever fertile music scene back in 2010 alongside friends like Eats Everything and Julio Bashmore.

Waifs & Strays announced their arrival with 'Yeah, Yeah' on Leftroom, which was named Essential New Tune by Pete Tong in 2011 and went on to become one of the year's biggest hits. The follow up release came via Jamie Jones' seminal label Hot Creations, the sultry 'Body Shiver' was a perfect fit for Jones' bass-heavy, groove-laden sets, and was included on his Fabric 59 mix CD.

As the song says "house is a feeling" and Waifs & Strays productions and sets have always maintained a strong variety, from the piano fuelled 'Love On Another' to the darker, harder sound of 'Lost In The Party', but always with pure house music at its heart.  A timeless sound, securing appearances at some of the world's best known and most influential clubs and festivals, including Fabric, DC10, Glastonbury and several dusty performances at Burning Man.

The Waifs & Strays recent discography has included such respected labels as Kerri Chandler’s Madtech, Luke Solomon’s Classic Records, Steve Lawler’s Viva and Mark Knight’s Toolroom and Skream’s Of Unsound Mind.

Originally a duo, now just Amos operating as a solo artist, the story has changed along the way, but the ethos remains the same; to keep the dancefloor moving to a soundtrack of house music of the highest order.

A simple mantra that will ensure Waifs & Strays remain a relevant force for years to come...
