Wajatta is the musical duo of comedian/musician Reggie Watts and electronic music artist, DJ, and producer, John Tejada. Pronounced wa-HA-ta — it’s a mash-up of the artists’ last names. Brainfeeder released their latest single “Waiting For The Get Down” in September of 2023. Previous releases include 2020’s Don’t Let Get You Down, and their 2021 EP, Do You Even Care? The duo describe Wajatta's music very broadly as “electronic dance music with its roots in Detroit techno, Chicago house, ‘70s funk and New York hip hop.” The pair has received love from KCRW, The Guardian, Mixmag, Future Music, and DJ Mag among many others. Reggie Watts is an internationally renowned Musician/Comedian/Writer/Actor who starred as the bandleader on CBS’s The Late Late Show with James Corden. Using his formidable voice, looping pedals, and his vast imagination, Watts blends and blurs the lines between music and comedy, wowing audiences with performances that are 100% improvised. He was the DJ at the 2021 Emmy Awards, and recently released his memoir Great Falls, MT [sites.prh.com] [sites.prh.com] [sites.prh.com].
