Out Now on The Weird & The Wonderful X Skint
WAX WINGS – ‘WHISPER’ EP
THE WEIRD & THE WONDERFUL X SKINT
A man on a mission, British-Brazilian Producer-DJ, Wax Wings has wasted no time following his recent ‘Gravedance’ EP. Never taking his feet off the pedals remixing for the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Jimmy Edgar, Sofi Tukkur, Vok and George Fitzgerald; his latest musical output comes in the form of the ‘Whisper’ EP.
“The Whisper EP is here to draw you closer to the album sound, after a battering with ‘Gravedance’ you can dissolve into these tracks, or equally keep up that energy” – Wax Wings
Contrary to what the name may suggest, make no preconceptions, ‘Whisper’ is far from timid. A collection of hard hitting dancefloor tracks that work both individually and together as a complete collection of art, this EP optimizes Wax Wings’ unique sound spanning all manner of genres; dance music in all its iterations.
Sharing the same name as the EP itself, inaugural track ‘Whisper’ is deep and driving house track that layers classic house elements with tribal nuances and a warm looping vocal line. ‘The Touch’ combines powerful kicks and rolling rhythms with swirling piano elements, that carry a definitive air of optimism.
“Whisper is designed to work for range of moments, explore numerous emotions and of course dive into a variety of different genres.” – Wax Wings
Contrastingly, the heavy droning bassline of ‘Never Come Back’ teamed with eerie synth melodies and breaky drum rhythms begin a descent into grittier depths. ‘Shame’ employs equally unswerving bass and breaks with reggae-style principles, giving the track a far dubbier feel than those that precede it. ‘Rain’ concludes the EP, taking small niceties from all other tracks from the release. Driving kicky rhythms and deep dubbing melodies, build to deliver a gripping bassline, serving as the outro to round off proceedings in true Wax Wings style.
A true artist with his fingertips in all manner of creative projects alongside his music; painting, fashion, photography, art direction. This multi-talented Producer-DJ has received major support from key figures in the music industry including B.Traits, Monki and Maya Jane Coles. Whilst also holding down a global residency for polysexual event He.She.They and a burgeoning globe trotter in his own right racking up the air miles between clubs like fabric (London), Watergate (Berlin), Pacha (Ibiza), Faust (Paris) and Sankeys (Tokyo) in support of the likes of Maya Janes Coles, Adam Beyer, Ellen Allien, Daniel Avery, and George Fitzgerald.
