Way Out West is the UK DJ project consisted of Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff.
They have done numerous remixes for other artists but have a few original releases that I am aware of.
On Deconstruction, they have released "The Gift" featuring Miss Joanna Law, a progressive house song with nice vocal additions at a healthy groove of 133 bpm. The familiar tune of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" is surrounded by the movin' techno drum and bass of the amazing duo.
Their new 12" released in the UK recently is entitled "Blue" and is receiving rave reviews.
Nick Warren has travelled through the indie, balearic, and now underground trance scenes. His DJing career has seen him travelling as far afield asthe far east, and across the states in 1993 with Massive Attack
Way Out West is not to be confused with the one or more country bands by the same name or the surf/rockabilly band from Germany. Way Out West are DJs and artists of trance and house in top form!
Here's an interview with Way Out West.

Nick Warren's TOP TEN
'papua new guinea' f.s.o.l. (jumpin & pumpin)
"This is their first and best record. I like emotional house records. F.S.O.L are influenced by reggae,
hip hop, breakbeats, big chords. 4AD artists are the vocalists, who have always been my favourites."
'lost in the sound' adonis (jack trax)
"This is a Chicago instrumental track. As you can see, very few vocal tracks in dance music excite me.
Deep house has nice choruses, nice sounds. Put it on and it works every time. People dance to it. Our
job as DJs is to make people dance not go up our own arses."
'just let go' petra & co (bcm)
"This an Italian house record, a dub mix. It came out in 1992 and if you hear it you might not know
who it's by but everyone recognises it. I still play it at least once a fortnight. It's got a killer riff that
sticks in peoples' head."
'alone' don carlos (atmo)
"I think this came out in 1992 when the Italian house thing got big exposure in England. Much of it was
Black Box cheesy samples and sounds but this was deep house. An emotional instrumental track.
'only love can break your heart' st etienne (heavenly)
"This came out at the height of the Balearic explosion when people like Oakenfold, Rampling and
Weatherall went to Ibiza. This is a mix by Andy Weatherall, it's mid-tempo, it's not a house track, and
it works so well. You can play it anywhere in a house set."
'chime' orbital (ffrr)
"I remember hearing this for the first time on the radio. I was gobsmacked. Before the era of orbital
raves and Sunrise I'd never heard this music. It was this record that got me into house. Again, it's got a
very British sound."
'keep movin' mike perras (basic)
"This came out around 1993. It's an American Chicago track. Again it's an instrumental deep house
track; it's very emotional. A classic that I hope is not going to be remixed in 1996."
'unfinished sympathy' massive attack (wild bunch)
"This came out when I started to DJ with Daddy G, but before I DJ'd with the band. He brought a
tape around to my flat and said 'listen to this'. I was amazed. I had that feeling of the hairs on the back
of my neck tingling which so rarely happens in dance music. It still sounds brilliant today. It'll never be
remixed or re-released, they would never let anyone near it. They're so precious about their music, and
why shouldn't they be?
'4am' tru funk (three stripe)
"This is Jody's first ever house track which he made with DJ Die - who now records with Roni Size. It
came out in 1991 and it's early acid house. It's brilliant - there's a sax sample going through it."
'cut for life' leftfield (hard hands)
"Leftfield are one of my favourite bands. Their sound is so British in the way they take their influences
from dub reggae to hip hop to techno and mix it all up and come out with something that wouldn't get
made anywhere else. This track has all these elements. It starts with half speed reggae and comes in
with all the elements of dance tracks that I love."
