Bump & Grind 2014 was produced by the duo Serge Santiágo and Firas Waez, also known as Waze & Odyssey. The record started as an underground hit in 2012, more DJ’s were playing the song at clubs as time went on.

But it was not until 2014 it got a major release from their label RCA and started getting airlplay. At the time it was an underground favorite among famous British DJ’s like Skream, DJ EZ, Duke Dumont, Rudimental were playing it at clubs.

” We made it to play in a DJ set one night. We played it out and it went wild. Then a few DJs asked for a copy and they started playing it out and we were getting all these wild reports back. About a year ago someone approached us about releasing it and so we decided to put it out there for those who maybe hadn’t heard it. It’s been an underground favourite for a while now.”

The music video was released two months before the actual official release of the song. The video features Hok from the American hip hop group Quest Crew as the main person.
