Waze of Waze & Odyssey fame has embarked on a solo adventure in 2021 and is taking everyone along on the ride with a stunning solo set.
When you talk about legends in the house scene, Waze is one who should be part of the conversation. Over the past two decades, he dominated the decks at nightclubs and festivals as half of Waze & Odyssey while releasing countless tunes that have ignited dancefloors and caught the ear of tastemakers around the world. In fact, if you’ve probably heard tracks like “Set It Off,” “Down With Tha,” and their remix of “Bump n’ Grind” booming through speakers, or even caught “Always” which dropped last year.
This year, though, Waze looked to finesse his skills as a solo artist and released his first track for the masses to consume, “Games.” Unveiled back in May, this heater is yet another solid jam from the maestro as he offers up stunning piano house grooves and a beat you can’t help but move your body to. To take the track to the next level, he looked to London-based singer FABER to provide some vocals that are truly electric. And if you’re looking for a fresh twist on the tune, check out the Clapton Club Mix that’s absolutely sublime as well.
To celebrate the release of this massive tune and showcase his solo skills as a DJ, Waze threw down on the decks and created a mix that’s perfect for the sunny days ahead in the rest of spring and summer. Speaking about the mix itself, he said: “[I] had a lot of fun putting together my first solo DJ set as Waze a few weeks ago. Strictly one for the floor, it features some producers and artists I’m loving at the moment including Shermanology, Kettama, Jaden Thompson, and more. Also getting an airing is the Clapton Club Mix I’ve done of my new single “Games” which YOUSEF dropped at the Circus test event a few weeks back. [It] was amazing to see the video of it going off!”
As for the future, Waze mentioned that he’s been busy in the studio working away on “a load of new music and some special edits for my sets.” So make sure to stay tuned as “Games” and this mix are just a taste of what’s to come from this legendary artist in 2021.
