Rare Live Performance by Way Out West at Shine This Saturday
But Wisternoff and Warren were always creative on the low end, mixing in slightly harder beats than one would find on the usual prog-house hit. Their first bona fide UK chart hit, "The Gift," was a work of atmospheric breakbeats whose drums owed more than a little to the early days of jungle.
In the ensuing years, Way Out West reined in their more airy, out-there tendencies in favor of almost-pop structures, landing them soundtrack spots on TV shows like Grey's Anatomy and The O.C. Still, the dance floor - or at least the chill-out room - is where these guys belong, as evidenced on their new single, "Only Love." It's a big-room tune with a bit of a tribal swagger, is a hit with longtime Way Out West fans, and is the lead single from the pair's forthcoming new album, We Love Machine. Take note: Saturday's gig at Shine at the Shelborne is an actual live performance by Way Out West, not a DJ set, so it's a rare treat.
