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 dance floors than American hip-hop. 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 dance floors (and the radio, too, thanks to a television advert that used the song). 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 Glastonbury Festival. Since then, the band have embarked on a UK tour, released their Tuesday Maybe (Remixed) album, and crafted an EP of chill-out mixes of tracks from their fifth record - and, with more new projects in the pipeline for the next twelve months, it’s safe to say that there’s never been a more exciting time to be a Way Out West fan.
