Until fairly recently, house duo Waze & Odyssey were running with the story that they’re orphans raised by a record store owner in New York, and that they produced their tracks in a Detroit basement. But their cover has been blown; it turns out that they’re actually two blokes from London. Although with a sound this tasty, a wacky back story shouldn’t be needed to get people’s attention. Strongly influenced by the 90s, Waze & Odyssey make luscious and summery US house/garage style beats with crowd-rousing crescendos, chopped vocal samples and a healthy portion of bass. What a treat.
