INTERVIEW: WAZE & ODYSSEY

Posted in Club Night, Competition, Interviews, We are not a rock band with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2012 by Red Ben

Waze & Odyssey are part of a new wave of emerging UK producers who are helping to keep the UK house scene on its toes.  After their first release in early 2012, “Ah Baby (Here We Go Again)”  they’ve released a whole load of remixes, originals, and bootlegs, ranging from raw, urban garage tracks through to epic ’90s-influenced house anthems.  They originally created a fake background story about being US garage veterans raised on a diet of funk & soul in Miami, but then they came clean that they were just having a laugh with that story and are actually a couple of London veterans called Serge Santiago and Firas Waez.  With a distinct Waze & Odyssey sound evolving, a new W & O record label, a love of keeping people guessing, and support from the likes of Pete Tong, Lazaro Casanova, Bicep, and Friendly Fires, Waze & Odyssey are set to be BIG in 2013.  We caught up with them to find out what they’re all about…
