Bristol, England, Vereinigtes Königreich
Jody Wisternoff is best known as one half of the Bristol progressive house duo Way Out West and as a producer of dance music spanning early 90s hardcore to electro house.
His first break came in the late 1980s as one half of Tru Funk Posse (with his brother Sam) when Bristol producers Smith & Mighty opened up their studio to them. Their tracks were playlisted by DJ Tim Westwood and the brothers appeared in magazine The Face.
In the early 90s Wisternoff DJed at clubs such as Universe and Fantasia and produced tracks with DJ Die (now of Reprazent fame) under the name Sub Love, along with singer & song writer Sue Brice aka Coco Star vocalist of Fragma's Toca's Miracle.
However Wisternoff met with fellow DJ Nick Warren in a Bristol record shop which saw the birth of the progressive house act Way Out West. Fusing the dub sounds of Bristol with club beats the duo saw the peak of their success in the mid to late 90s with tracks like "The Gift" and "Ajare".
In the mid to late 90s Wisternoff was a resident DJ at Temptation, a leading Friday night techno and jungle club night at Bristol's Lakota nightclub, which was promoted by Bristol based producer Leon Alexander of Hope Recordings. In 1997 Jody released his first mix album "The Silver Planet Collection Volume 1" followed by the well received "Way Out There - A Progressive DJ Mix" in 2001.
Recently Jody has been producing solo 80s inspired electro house tracks, with five productions released thus far: 'Cold Drink, Hot Girl,' 'Nostalgia', 'Starstrings', 'Welcome to your life', and 'Lassoo / No Longer Strangers'.
He also has an extensive solo remix back catalogue for artists such as Leama & Moor, Moussa Clarke, Ikon, Coalesced, Dana Bergquist & Peder G and Andrew Bennett & Rico Soarez.
Way Out West's long-awaited fourth album, titled "We Love Machine", was released on October 6, 2009. The song "Only Love" featuring Jonathan Mendelsohn on vocals (the album marks their first collaboration with a male vocalist) was the first single off the album, released August 31, 2009. The album was released on Hope Recordings, but the duo have also set up a deluxe version available at their own website. Wisternoff plans to release a solo album at some point and continue his prolific DJ work.
Towards the end of 2010 and the first half of 2011, Jody posted a number of new white label tracks on to his YouTube account such as Won't Let You Down and Shivver, with no details of their planned official releases. Jody also continues to post at least one or two new mixes per month on to his Soundcloud, either as part of his Intensified show or Frisky Radio.
