Wajatta: “Don’t Let Get You Down”

Posted by on Dec 10, 2019

You’ve seen Reggie Watts on The Late Late Show with James Corden and heard John Tejada remix and produce acts from across the globe, but you may not’ve known that the two have been collaborating under the portmanteau Wajatta. And while a comedian/beat-boxer/live loop singer might not be the most likely complement to a melodic DJ/composer/producer, in addition to both being Americans born in German-speaking countries, Tejada and Watts also have a shared, burning passion for retro-inspired urban electronic music.

The duo’s back-and-forth, in-person, and never-remote approach to working together has lent itself to Wajatta’s unified style (in light of Watts’ and Tejada’s outspoken individual personalities), and in the wake of their debut Casual High Technology, these two are set to return on the upcoming LP Don’t Let Get You Down. The eleven pulsating, pop-influenced tracks on Don’t Let Get You Down¬†are going to make for a perfect wrap up on the winter blues when it drops in late February, but let’s get the fun started right now with the record’s title track!
