Flashmob, Waze & Odyssey Set For Cork Date

It’s a well known fact that Cork has always been somewhat of a hotspot for house music. From the many a wild night in Sir Henrys to more recently some standout shows at the Pav and The Savoy the rebel county likes to get acquainted with a 4/4 beat. This Friday sees one of the most potent lineups in recent history with both Waze & Odyssey and Flashmob of Defected Records taking to the stage at the infamous Savoy. The night comes courtesy of JACK, the Dublin based promoters who have been making waves outside the capital of late as well as Belfast and Cork. Their last show with MK in The Pav causing quite a ruckus with desperate ravers doing anything for a ticket in the days surrounding the show.

On this occasion the creative cooks at JACK have brought a nice little pairing together. The garage-influenced grooves of Waze & Odyssey have consistently attracted praise over the last few years. From standout remixes for the likes of Comphuphonic, Duke Dumont and TEED to originals like I Want You You You and Be Right There, the London pair have been steadily churning out the solid tunes. They are also responsible for what is undoubtedly one of the most fantastic bootlegs in recent years with ‘Bump and Grind’ a very clever rework of an infamous R Kelly number. As darlings of the underground at the moment they have also released a number of records on their own W&O Street Tracks. Up and comers like Citizen have had their work showcased in recent months as well as recognized names like Ejeca. They represent the kind of fresh new house music which has dominated the scene in recent times and should acquit themselves well in the theatre that is the Savoy.



Squaring up alongside the UK duo will be a well known act for Irish fans in Flashmob. The Italian producers have enjoyed a whirlwind couple of years off the back of the anthem Need In Me and staunch support from Defected Records on the likes of Hot and Pieces. With a new album on the way and a proven record after playing some incredible shows in Ireland (two sold out runs in Dublin in the past 12 months as well as a memorable appearance in Belfast) they will no doubt whip up the kind of atmosphere Corkonians can appreciate. At present their bootleg concept is garnering the support of the underground elite and a few spins of these notorious reworks will no doubt be expected on Friday. CT can’t recommend this night enough if you’re looking to lose yourself for the night of Valentines.

Tickets for this one are still available via Ticketmaster:
