Spotlight: Waya Waya

Out of Mexico comes Waya Waya, a production duo dropping feverish beats that collide at the intersection of kuduro, Tribal Guarachero and a platter of tropical bass goodness for a dense, club-ready sound. The duo just released an excellent EP titled La Tribu via Etoro records label. We are particularly fond of the track named after the duo which lays down a speedy beat with some steely percussion before getting native on us with the excited yelps of an unnamed female and samples of what sounds like a whittled, wooden wind instrument.

Made up of two ladies named Jenice & Cani, Waya Waya has been around for a minute now. They won the remix contest Ze Bula by Akwaaba & Mad Decent in October 2009 but have become particularly active of recent. Word has it that they got a couple of other singles and EPs on the way this year.

We can’t wait.

Thanks to Ghetto Bassquake for bringing this to our attention.
