Unknown – EWax Black Series [EWax]
Berlin-based record label EWax returns with its third pressing from the EWax Black Series, a steaming 12” featuring four mysterious tracks signed by an Unknown artist. Focusing on the music and not on who’s behind it, the series delivers amazing vibes, exploring various possibilities of contemporary house and techno rhythms.
Founded in 2016 by SY aka YSC, the imprint is well-known for its solid releases, as well as for the parties it hosts in beautiful locations across Europe. From Berlin to Barcelona, Amsterdam, Paris, Ibiza, Bucharest, and many others, the electronic music communities are well aware and enthusiastic every time an event and line-up are announced. On such occasions, well-thought combinations of DJs and producers make sure every moment is enjoyable, as the music is always engaging. Recently, we’ve seen artists like Just_Me, Cosmjn, Alci, Iuly.B, Maik Yells, Janeret and Viceversa behind the decks, spinning groovy selections with EWax promoting the good vibrations.
With 10+ vinyl pressings and counting, the label’s catalogue includes names like Angel Ramos, Laurent Ci, Tijn, Pierre Codarin, Thomas Wood, Paolo Rocco and Alex Ground, to name a few. The Black Series features untitled cuts, coming from unnamed producers, following the statement “No names, just music!”.
Side A opens with “Blk01”, an exotic house-infused rhythm, flavoured with whirling elements, reverberating effects and bright notes that build tension as the cut flows. Next, there’s “Blk02”, an uplifting track designed with a driving percussion at its core and a disco-inspired filtered synth that morphs throughout the composition. On the flipside, “Blk03” unfolds as a minimalistic and energetic sound, featuring a wobbling bassline and pounding percussion. The closing cut, “Blk04” sounds more like a re-interpretation of the second track, with the synth patterns going into a more spacious dimension. The main theme keeps the energy, while the background layers are closer to deep house sounds. A must have for any collector or selector!
