Already heavy hitters on the house music scene since their first releases back in 2012, Waze & Odyssey continue to carve out club burners with such ease, and their first release of 2017 finds a suitably fitting home on Edible.
"We played a gig with Dan (Eats) back in Jan 2012 in Leeds where it snowed so much we all had to get out and push the bloody van up a hill. I think Eats fell over and hit the deck at some point! Anyway, we're pretty hyped to become part of the family for this and get these tracks out, love the label so it's heaven to us!" Waze & Odyssey, Jan 2017
The duo of Firas Waez and Serge Santiágo have seemingly not put one step wrong in their ascendency within the house music circuit. Be it releases for labels like Wolf Music, Elrow or their own W&O Street Tracks, or remixes for the likes of Disclosure, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaur and Metronomy, W&O have found that knack of delivering sure fire winners time after time.
Already a staple in label boss Eats Everything’s DJ sets, Down With Tha has all the hallmarks of a bona fide club classic; the hyperactive drums and looping vocal refrain; the downright funky bass lick; the killer hook and the bone shattering breakdown; this cut rings out loud across dancefloors.
Competently propping up the release, Seizure serves up a dubby drum workout that culminates in a snare roll breakdown that’ll have you frothing at the mouth. Shades of West Coast house action are most definitely in play, and in the hands of W&O sounding completely fresh.
