Mixmag has featured charts from many talented artists for our Selects series, including Mr. G, Modeselektor, Simian Mobile Disco and Kevin Saunderson among others. This week, we welcome a duo known both individually and together as Way Out West, a group made up of Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff who have been creating together for over 20 years.
Well known for their 1996 hits 'The Gift' (familiar to some as the theme song of MTV's wildly popular show 'True Life'), 'Ajare' and 'Domination', the UK duo are a rare pair that have also found success individually as well. Nick Warren oversees the Sound Garden label and has also contributed an impressive record-breaking eight Global Underground mixes while Jody remains a staple of the Anjunadeep imprint.
Their fifth studio album, announced earlier this year, will be 'Tuesday Maybe' and is due out on June 16 on Anjunadeep. Ahead of the impending release, Way Out West joined us for a Selects to dive into a selection of their favorite rising stars and up-and-coming acts of the moment.

'Sunshine' is a perfect combination of sun-drenched sultry chords, dubby sub bass and beats aimed firmly at the dance floor. It's deep house as it's finest! - Jody
Baime 'The Damned'
Sadly, 'The Damned' is not named after the 70's punk band, but a delicious slice of proggy techno with a wicked Middle Eastern clarinet style lead line. - Nick
