Round, bold San Serif Font - Distinctive letter 'W' and 'S'

What is this font?

Can you tell us more about the source? Are there any other samples? If this is a logo it’s highly likely that it is custom lettering, not type.

That S looks like it was cobbled together from two pieces that don't really make a proper S. The top of the S shouldn't lean out over the bottom on the left as it does. It's as if someone didn't like the S in Bauhaus and tried to make their own. The W looks like Bauhaus or Pump — one of the geometric Bauhaus-style fonts. The other letters could be from almost any heavy-weight Sans.
