Debut Transmission: Waifs & Strays – Hosa
Waifs & Strays. No we’re not on about what our Grandfather refers to us and our friends as (although he does) we’re of course referring to the former Bristolian house duo now one artist act of the same name. First emerging from the West Country back in 2010 the last five years have been been kind to the twosome (musically at least) with their brand of bass charged house music winning them fans across the land.
After announcing their arrival on the big stage with ‘Yeah, Yeah’ on Leftroom, they further cemented their standing within the scene with their follow up arriving via Jamie Jones‘ esteemed Hot Creations imprint with the sultry ‘Body Shiver’ making its way into many of Jones’ bass-heavy, groove-laden sets, more importantly his Fabric 59 mix CD.
Fast forward to 2015 and Amos is now operating as a solo artist under the Waifs & Strays moniker, with Rich taking a sabbatical due to health issues. Going from a two-man working relationship to riding solo can be a tough break for some, but for Amos it’s a challenge that he’s relishing. Now working alone, he’s pushing the project forward with a renewed zeal, dedicating his time and energy to bolstering his production skills with a clear vision of where the project is heading. His latest release for Skream’s Of Unsound Mind, ‘Heartbeat / Hosa’ serves as case in point, offering up two fresh belters sure to get crowds moving this winter.
Set to arrive December 18th, you can stream ‘Hosa’ below.
