With great pleasure Odyssey Recordings take to the stage once again. This time we bring you UTAH JAZZ 'GROOVE THERAPY' Album launch World Tour at Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton alongside our very own label artists Narkotix, Mr Moon, Charlene McKenzie, Sanz and Odyssey Collective. Joining us on the night will be Offworld and Bassdrive's very own DJs Scenic and Advisory.
From the man responsible for some of the finest liquid-funk in drum & bass history, comes a brand new album of original dancefloor gold…
Back in the groove in his own inimitable style, the original liquid-funkster Utah Jazz returns with yet another dose of soulful medicine that is set to hypnotise dancefloors worldwide. After the runaway successes of debut LP 'It's a Jazz Thing" and 2010's follow-up "Vintage", the Jazz Man is back with "Groove Therapy" - his third and most ambitious album to date.
Hailed by critics, music lovers and dancefloor ravers from Thailand to Tennessee, Utah Jazz remains one of the UK's finest exports, amassing a global army of admirers for his hand-crafted, heart-and-soul drum & bass flavours. From sunshine-drenched vocal sweetness, to funk-strutting party numbers and dancefloor-destroying grooves, The Jazz is all about the music. And it's never sounded so good...
WARNING: this is rare, refined and remarkable dance music.

Scenic & Advisory
Scenic & Advisory are a UK (Redditch) based Drum & Bass duo formed by Tommy Osgood (Scenic) & Lee Adkins (Advisory). While they have a penchant for the deep and atmospheric end of the D&B spectrum, blurring the lines between those and other genres is their focus.

With support from Dj's such as Bassdrive's Stunna, Overfiend, Method One, Magin, LM1, Fusion, SoulTec, Indigo Sync, Amnesty and artist/DJs such as Tidal, LJ High, Jaybee, Matik, Seathasky, Future Engineers, Smote, Bassflo, Johnny Beverton to name but a few the duo are making headway within the scene.
Now partnered with the mighty Offworld Recordings and with the support of master producer LM1, Scenic & Advisory have found the perfect platform to deliver their music to fans on a global scale and the freedom to take their music as far as their imaginations.
