Since bursting onto the scene last year, East Londoners Waze & Odyssey have quickly become a go-to for DJs from Istanbul to Ibiza. Their shuffly, 90s-sounding grooves evocative of 4am warehouse raves have found their way into the crates of BBC Radio One jocks such as Pete Tong, Skream and Benga, and Annie Mac. One of my all-time memories behind the turntables was getting to drop this to a very enthused Peaches’ dance crew in Barcelona last July.
With acts such as Disclosure and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs bringing back classic garage and house influences into the public consciousness, this duo is poised to continue pacing the field.

I’ve been crushing hard on South African “Kwaito” music lately. Apparently the recent interest (particularly from the U.K.) in Kwaito music surprises some South Africans as the music shares a lot of similarities to early 90′s techno from the U.K.
