The mysterious duo, Waze & Odyssey, have finally unveiled themselves today in an announcement of their new label, W&O Street Tracks. Their identities are finally out in the open, and we now know that Waze is actually Firas Waez — a DJ, promoter, and one half of the duo, Caze Nova — and Odyssey is Serge Santiago — a former member of Radio Slave and one half of Retro/Grade. Lots of serious talent up in this duo out of London as you can tell. Their first release is slated for sometime in September, and it will feature two tracks from the newly unmasked duo — ‘Love That’ and ‘Ma Body.’ Have a listen to previews of each below and pay attention to the Body Work label this July as W&O will be releasing an EP over there as well. √+ Continue Reading

London’s Retro/Grade are to release their new Mindfighter EP at the end of the month. It marks the first of three EPs they’ll be releasing this year, which together will form the duo’s debut album. If you’re not already familiar with Retro/Grade, it’s the side-project of Tom Neville and Serge Santiago, two world renowned producers at the top of their game. With new single ‘Mindfighter’, Retro/Grade have delivered a heavy-hitting piece of italo-disco, the video of which you can stream below. Stay tuned for the full release and concluding album, but in the meantime check out the new vid and be sure to cop the mellower Maxxi Soundsystem remix, which I’m feeling a lot at the moment:
