Way Out West have been around a long time, they’re true dance music veterans. Unlike many collaborations, Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff have kept Way Out West together whilst pursuing solo careers, releasing 4 artists albums in 16 years. The Gift is a classic tune which hit a top 15 spot in the UK singles chart in 1996. Here, Way Out West talk about the Deconstruction release of their classic. The original is available in a digital format for the first time ever, accompanied by a new mix from the duo, and remixes from Gui Borrato, Michael Woods, Logistics, and Tek-One.

But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article
BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article
Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
