Unknown – EWax Black Series 004 [EWax]
The fourth instalment in the notorious EWax Black Series has arrived, packing four fresh and groovy cuts without revealing the artist’s name and keeping the tracks untitled, just like we are accustomed to. The focus is on the music and this 12” sure delivers, adding even more spice to an already amazing catalogue that Berlin-based record label EWax brings forward.
Headed by YSC aka SY, an established figure in the international underground scene, EWax provides dazzling electronic dance music through its vinyl-only releases and showcase events all over Europe. Collaborations include names like Marcu Rares, Alex Ground, Jamahr, Bolumar, Tijn, Laurent Ci, Pierre Codarin, Mike Sharon and Aimed, to name only a few. At the parties, there will always be top DJs and producers on the line-up and you have to attend in order to experience that specific EWax vibe yourself. This year the crew was present in Romania in April and they will return soon for sure, so stay tuned.
Diving into the record and we notice a subtle acidic, funky and deep house flavour infused in all the tracks, that’s definitely aiming at the dancefloor. A1 slowly sets the tempo of the material with a wobbling rhythm dominated by a playful bassline, long bright pads and pumping percussion. The feeling is passed to A2 and explored in depth. Here, we find jazzy influences and multiple evolving bleeps and synth arrangements that add colour to the beat. On the flipside, B1 equips an exotic uplifting tone while B2 closes the wax with a rolling deep sequence, perfect for the afterhours. A great collectable for selectors and music enthusiasts alike.
