Reggie Watts & John Tejada Form Electronic Duo Wajatta

Wajatta

Comedian/musician/band leader of CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden Reggie Watts has teamed up with famed Los Angeles-based techno producer John Tejada to form the electronic group Wajatta, a mash-up of Watts and Tejada. Their first single, “Runnin,'” will be released on December 1 via Comedy Dynamics Records.

The new project finds the pair celebrating their mutual love for Detroit techno, Chicago house, ’70s funk and New York hip-hop.

Obligatory press release gush from Watt: “Having been a longtime fan of John’s I was completely taken aback when we had the opportunity to meet a while back at one of his LA shows. We exchanged information and kept in touch. Eventually we decided to try something in the studio together. I explained that I love to work improvisationally and quickly in the moment. John fortunately has a fast mind and also works in this way so as soon as we started recording it just worked immediately; me being able to just flow what was in my head in response to his music and him locking onto that and crafting something great around/with it. It’s been such a fun experience brief and yet prolific as the partnership continues. I’m so excited to finally release music that I think will inspire people to move and expand on the dance floor or groove in their headphones. I believe Wajatta is that culminative experience!!”

Obligatory press release gush from Tejada: “Reggie and I met at one of my shows last winter and we began work on our collaborations soon after. “Runnin” was a work that was actually started by Reggie live on The Lot Radio Brooklyn. Reggie gave me access to all his looper files and I added my own synth and drums to it, layered some more Reggie and away we went.”

Longer is often better when it comes to DJ sets. Just ask Toolroom Records boss Mark Knight, who earlier in the year released Odyssey, a short film where he interviewed peers including Danny Tenaglia, Roger Sanchez and Andy C about why playing an extended set is often the highest form of musical expression for a DJ.

Next year fabric London will pump up the volume on extended DJ sets. The legendary club will be pairing top-class DJs side by side for up to 10 hours at a time.
