CLUB READY ‘GRAVEDANCE’ EP GETS RELOADED WITH FOUR INTENSE REMIXES
“GRAVEDANCE IS THE DEFINITION OF A PURE CLUB BANGER” – DJ MAG UK
LABEL: THE WEIRD & THE WONDERFUL X SKINT
Wax Wings is an artist in the truest sense of the word from painting, fashion, graffiti, photography, art direction through to music. The young producer/DJ already has some impressive remix credentials under his belt including Maya Jane Coles’ Nocturnal Sunshine, Nimmo, The Presets, Eli & Fur and Vök, and has collaborated with artists such as Skunk Anansie’s Skin and Dead Can Dance’s Lisa Gerrard.
Holding a residency in London for the newly established, HE.SHE.THEY at Ministry Of Sound who’s mission statement is “A place without prejudice for people to be people”. Wax is allowed to fully express his musical style and lives up to DJ Mag’s ‘Ones To Watch for 2018’ tag, playing alongside acts such as Maya Jane Coles, Satoshi Tomiie and Ellen Allien. 2018 is shaping up to be one of his biggest years, having already played at the London Fashion Week Festival in February. Wax is lined up to play the opening party for this year’s IMS: Ibiza at Pacha, Ibiza. As well as dates at the world-famous Watergate, Berlin.
Ending 2017 in style, Wax Wings released his EP ‘Gravedance’ delivering six dancefloor focused weapons. This builds on the remarkable success of his first two EPs ‘System’ and ‘The Love Inside Me’ which gained strong support across the airwaves from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s B.Traits and Monki. He now returns with four intense remixes of the original cuts, reloaded and ready to go again.
Opening the EP Wax Wings leans on the talents of DJ/Producer & long-time friend ABSOLUTE. for the first of two remixes of ‘Gravedance’. Declared by Tiga as a ‘Future Star’, Absolute injects force and power into the original with a modulated bassline rippling throughout. Enlisting cultural provocateur Warboy for the second of those remixes, the underground veteran UK DJ/Producer offers up dominant basslines and theatrical hooks whilst retaining all the originals prominent vocal sample. Having played B2B with Wax Wings at the inaugural HE.SHE.THEY party, Warboy lends his experienced hand to the young producers Remix package.
D-Code & Psylence transform ‘Toxic Love’ from a straight down the line dark and tripped out Techno tool to a breakbeat injected groover, complete with dubby synth tones akin to the original. Completing the remix package is London based producer Venice Calypso, having previously remixed Wax Wings for his ‘The Love Inside Me’ EP. Sebastien is back with a driving remake of ‘Drunk’. Flipping the original and injecting the signature Venice Calypso, his version of ‘Drunk’ is primed for the dancefloor.
To celebrate the release Wax has joined forces with Warboy’s very own Friday nighter Shutdown at SEDITION (formally known as East Bloc) to throw a chaotic basement bash. Showcasing each remix artist and joined by a cast of experimental party makers and radical performers.
