Those with a keen ear for bumping New Jersey flavoured house/garage should already be well versed on all things Waze & Odyssey, the mysterious duo appearing as if from nowhere earlier this year and hitting clubs hard with a series of EPs on labels like Southern Fried, Wolf Music, Sccucci Manucci and my own Body Work label.
Throw in remixes for the likes of Damon Martin (Disco Bloodbath), Dan Le Sac, Bicep and Disclosure and W&O have been shaping up to be one of the year’s breakthrough talents, compared by DJ Mag to Azari & III.
Well now they’ve launched their own vinyl only label W&O Street Tracks and finally come out of the disco closet revealing themselves to be none other than London based producers Firas Waez and Serge Santiago. The debut release on their new label is the massive 2 tracker ‘Love That (Burns Hot Enough)’ b/w ‘Ma Body’ and you can stream both below now.
That won’t be out till late summer/early autumn but if you’re feeling impatient never fear as there’s a Firas solo EP out at the end of June, swiftly to be followed by another Waze & Odyssey EP in July both on Body Work. It’s going to be a summer of shuffling.
