Listen: Waze & Odyssey BBC R1 Esssential Mix

London production duo Serge Santiago and Firas Waez began life behind a mysterious shroud, but they’ve long since blown cover and assaulted the UK dance scene head on. In fact, likelihood is that if you’ve been in a club since the beginning of the year you’ve heard new classics ‘Ways Of The Underground’ and ‘Feel On Fire’. Their lively, deep house revivalism has seen releases on Tsuba, Wolf Music, and Sccucci Manucci, but the boys have found time to set up their own imprint too in the form of W&O Street Tracks.

A benchmark for any DJ on the up, the Radio 1 Essential Mix has become a rite of passage for those breaking free from the veil of underground hype and into the dance elite. With an archive of formidable mixes, W&O’s contribution is no exception. Recorded live in February 2015, on turntables and CDJs in their London studio, fuelled by a variety of wines, beers and spirits, the mix showcases some choice tracks and edits from the W&O saddlebag alongside classic gems and new loves. Cut loose and turn it up to eleven.
