What do you get when you pair a veteran tech-house producer lauded for his sinewy rhythms and meticulously engineered grooves with a charismatic vocalist, consummate improviser and late-night TV bandleader? Jubilant uptempo funk laced with futuristic falsetto loops, that’s what. Wajatta—a portmanteau of Reggie Watts and John Tejada’s last names—speaks directly to the fusion of their persons, which musically, also snaps right into place.
