is an English electronic music producer and DJ. He is best known as one half of the Bristol-based progressive house duo Way
Out West and as a producer of dance music spanning early 1990s hardcore to electro house.
Wisternoff's first break came in the late 1980s as one half of the duo Tru Funk Posse (with brother Sam Wisternoff) when Bristol-based producers
Smith Mighty opened up their studio to them. Their tracks were playlisted by DJ Tim Westwood and the brothers appeared in The Face magazine.
In the early 1990s, Wisternoff DJ'd 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 and song writer Sue Brice (Coco Star), the vocalist of Fragma's Toca's Miracle.
Wisternoff met fellow DJ Nick Warren in a Bristol record shop, which led to the birth of the progressive house act Way Out West. Fusing the dub sounds
of Bristol with club beats, the duo saw great success in the mid to late '90s with tracks like "The Gift" and "Ajare." Way Out West continues to
the present day, having released their fourth album We Love Machine in 2009.
In the mid-to late-1990s, 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, he 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.
