After scoring massive support slots for the likes of Jauz and Gordo, DJ duo Wizzy & Wiley add production to their resume with the release of their first track, “Look At You.” This tech house track contains that classic four-on-the-floor beat with just a touch of darkness. This matches the vaguely psychedelic hypnosis that Wizzy & Wiley want to cast in their live sets, and now their music. “Look At You” features different cavernous elements of techno as well as the occasional vocal sample. For their debut track, Wizzy & Wiley demand eyes and ears on their developing project.
