EDITORS’ NOTES

After six years away, progressive house pioneers Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren return with Tuesday Maybe, a feast of melodic dance music. With smokey synths, stretched-out basslines, and squelchy rhythmic textures, the pair don’t stray too far from their Bristol rave roots. But they do make more room for vocal melodies, tapping London’s Eli & Fur for the seductive “Running Away” and Hendrik Burkhard for “We Move in the Dark.” The result is an album of trance-tent tracks that are intimate enough to transition into the after-hours.

Always brilliant, always soaring, beautiful

VivekB,

Dance music with beauty, soul and joy ... Jody and Nick always deliver!

Nothing but the best!

Reynard the Fox,

You'd expect nothing but the best from these two, right? Well, sit back, strap in, and take a listen. It's all right here. Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren may have taken a break from the Way Out West that was, but they reunite to lend their talents, passion and love for music to a tremondous effort. It's an amazing treat for the ears. I was introduced to Way Out West in the late 90s and this album can be seen as a sucessor of sorts. Think of it building upon all the great tunes these gents put out in the past. Cheers!

About Way Out West

Conspicuous from the rest of Bristol's electronica scene in the '90s by the absence of trip-hop or jungle leanings in their productions, Way Out West instead pursued straight-ahead house and trance with closer ties to progressive British dancefloors than American hip-hop. The duo of Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren first came together in the mid-'90s. Wisternoff was a veteran producer who had first recorded at the age of 14 (with fellow Bristolian house artists Smith & Mighty), while Warren was a high-profile Balearic DJ and club-night promoter influenced by the sounds of Madchester. The duo began recording together, and by 1996 their single "The Gift" had become a big mover on dancefloors and the radio as well, thanks to a British advert that used the song. Signed to Deconstruction, Way Out West released their self-titled debut album in 1997. A change of venue, to Distinct'ive, preceded the release of 2001's Intensify, and after a three-year interim the duo followed that with the like-minded Don't Look Now.

With Warren meanwhile releasing numerous mix compilations, many of them for Global Underground, Way Out West returned in 2009 with We Love Machine. Featuring contributors such as Scuba, Jaytech, and D. Ramirez, We Love Machine: The Remixes followed on Hope Recordings a year later. Wisternoff released the solo album Trails We Blaze on Anjunadeep in 2012 and went on to mix several installments of the label's popular compilation series. Anjunadeep also issued the Way Out West singles "Tuesday Maybe" and "Set My Mind" in 2016. With guest appearances by Doe Paoro and Liu Bei, the duo's fifth LP, Tuesday Maybe, arrived in June 2017 and was accompanied by a performance at the Glastonbury Festival. ~ John Bush & Marcy Donelson
