30 Jul Darker Than Wax release first EP in new selector-led compilation series
When the globe-trotters in Darker Than Wax say “we move”, they make sure to mean it.
The prolific Singaporean label has unveiled the first entry of Various Channels, compiled by DJ and curator Marco Weibel. This collection zeroes in on the disparate and diverse sounds of the New York City dancefloors, where flickering house beats rubbing shoulders with slick R&B jams.
The artists are just a tiny crop taken from the city’s stream of talents — names on this release range from forward-thinking soul artists Jitwam and James Tillman to cosmic house duo Ensemble Entendu and techno savant Tristan Arp.
The EP is also available on vinyl, but the tally on the label’s Bandcamp shows that they only have a handful of copies left. Act quick and get yours here.
Expect new entries to appear in the near future. Just within the past few months, Darker Than Wax have already released the first entry in the BODYCLOCK series and the infectious debut EP by Bongomann.
