The Polish superstar DJ / Producer Team WAWA is coming back with another release (the 2nd one) on Haiti Groove Recodings , Germany. The new release is called Devotion and is a funky disco house track with catchy vocals, nice guitar riffs and massive remix package by the Colombian produer DJ Fist, and New York based producer Derek Fieldhosue with its STAND TALL FISTS UP version.
Background: While on a record buying trip to Amsterdam in 2000 the boys left some of their work at the Rhythm Imports shop. Rhythm Imports loved it and invited them back to record more. The first release was No Problem on the Fresh Fruit label. Defected sub-label Fluential licensed the track and released it as the No Problem EP. That promptly broke into the British dance charts and was played out by the likes of Carl Cox, Pete Tong and Roger Sanchez. Fluential and Rhythm Import are still repressing it three years after its release. Next came the GK EP, also on Fluential, which features guitars by Gerald from Banda Sonora and drew airtime on BBC Radio 1. 2004 brought the release of The After Party with vocals by none other than Eddie Amador. Since then their reputation has been building at a rapid rate in the dance World with Brian Tappert (Soulfuric), Stonebridge, Warren Clarke, & ATFC all being avid supporters of WAWA.
WAWAs remix work has also brought success. Their mix of Gaston & Phillips track Isolacion was supported by Pete Tong on his Essential Selection, while their remix of Morris Ts Let Me Be hit number one in the DMC charts. Defected Records were so impressed with WAWAs reworking of the club anthem E Samba by Junior Jack that they gave it a special release under the title E WAWA & went on to be a 1 selling dance record. Judge Jules (Radio One) was heavily supported their remix of Francesco Diaz & Young Rebels Ibiza, playing it no less than 3 times on his show!
Last year saw WAWAs profile raised even further thanks to their excellent remix of Stonebridges SOS (Apollo / Universal) which was championed by everyone from Steve Smart (Kiss) & Andi Durrant (Galaxy) and later went on to not only be a 1 club record in the UK, but the 1 club record of 2007 in the main Music Week club chart! Further club chart & dance radio success came soon after thanks to their remix for top American artist, JoJo (Mercury), (another top 3 club chart hit and a huge favourite with listeners of Radio Ones top Floorfillers show), Hilary Duffs Stranger, which was dropped peak-time at the opening party of the holy-grail of superclubs, Space in Ibiza and awarded Tune of the Week in their weekly podcast! (Stranger went on to top the U.S. Billboard Club chart, as well as hit 2 in the UK club chart), and their remix of hot Positiva signing, CheNelles I Fell In Love With A DJ was another top 10 club chart smash.
It was the boys remix of huge bassline smash, Heartbroken by T2, that ascended the demand for WAWA even further. Their rework was not only supported by all the biggest jocks but also played well over 10 times on Radio Ones Floorfillers, with the shows DJs commenting on air how much they loved them!
2008 only got bigger and better for WAWA. The Worlds 1 DJ, Armin Van Buuren recentely honored their new mix of Chicanes Spirit as Tune of the Week, as voted for by listeners of his Kiss show, while remixes for Cahill ( Beat Blue), Rikki Lee (Hed Kandi), Alphabeat (Virgin), and one of the biggest dance records of the year, The Outsiders Keep This Fire Burning all topped the UK club charts and remained in the boxes of the Worlds biggest players all year. WAWA also launched the first release on their new label, WAWA Traxx. Traxx:1, featuring the enormous club anthems, Sitar Track, Time, and the vocal monster Forever; (featuring Rita Campbell begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting) topped club charts everywhere and remained in Xpressbeats top 3 best sellers chart for nearly 2 months! The boys also got to remix legendary girl band, Sugababes, and had their version of the track cut to the video for the music channels.
2009 came even bigger remix projects for Sugababes, MSTRKRFT & John Legend, Ladyhawke, and on of the biggest remixes of the year, Empire Of The Suns We Are The People, which was another UK club chart 1, as well being dropped all over the World, with Tiesto being one of the biggest International supporters!
2010 has already got off to amazing start as WAWA have been behind some of the biggest crossover remixes of the year, Beyonce & Lady Gagas Videophone, and Kylies All The Lovers. They are also releasing their first single in two years, Pai, a club slammer that the boys return to their more underground roots, yet gives a cheeky wink to the mainstream!
With more remixes in the pipeline and new productions on the label already underway, 2011 can only get bigger & better for two of the nicest and talented guys in dance music!
