Munir - Circuit Line EP
Circuit Line EP
12" | 2020 | EU | Original (Darker Than Wax)
11,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
No stranger to the label, Munir (aka Midnight Runners) is one of Southeast Asia's most unique talents. A deep record collector, he has put his hometown of Bandung, Indonesia on the map with a relentless output of self-released edits drawing on Indonesian funk, Chinese pop, and Middle Eastern psych as source material over the last several years. Equally skilled as a producer, Munir's signature boogie-funk sounds have graced labels such as Neon Finger, Shaken Palms, and No Bad Days. Darker Than Wax unleash Munir's sounds on the label once again, with a strong sonic step forward from the artist and perhaps his most polished work yet: Circuit Line EP. Blending his signature boogie sound with Italo-disco influences, the record brings forth four stylishly crafted modern dancefloor cuts. "Circuit Line" is built on a foundation of reverence to the arpeggiator, driven by neon synth tones racing each other to the finish line. This racing theme defines the record throughout, painting images of classic '80s racing games on standout tracks "Finish Line" and "Race Car". "Interlinked" takes on a more subdued approach, building in intensity and weirdness with each synth line layered on. Showcasing Munir's prowess with percussion, "Pit Stop" is a feverish club workout rounding out the record as a complete package for the discerning DJ's arsenal. Crafted in his Bandung studio with love for classic hardware and respect for its musical influences, Circuit Line EP represents a turning point for Munir's sonic evolution.

Returning to the label's dance floor roots, BODYCLOCK is a natural extension of Darker Than Wax's DNA - a foray into the late night club sounds that defined their sound. The freshly minted series represents the Singaporean label's primary outlet for dance floor burners and machine soul, shedding light on a new school of producers from around the globe and at the same time paying homage to the pioneers who laid the foundations for us. A celebration of afro-futurism that is ever-present in the consciousness of dance, BODYCLOCK is built for the nocturnal beings and discerning selectors that push this timeless tradition forward. This first volume brings together five producers across four continents - Teymori from Australia, NYC's Malik Hendricks, label mainstay Ricky Razu from Belgium, as well as Darker Than Wax co-founder Kaye and up-and-comer Halal Sol from Singapore. Establishing both facets of the BODYCLOCK sound, Side A features two vocal-led soulful excursions, while the flip brings three unabashedly jacking cuts to light the floor on fire. This is only the beginning - BODYCLOCK is coming with an onslaught of twelve inches and EPs, distilling our sonic outlook and looking to the future.
Dampe - Oil
12" | 2020 | EU | Original (Darker Than Wax)
11,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Preorder available from 15.01.2021
Darker Than Wax's first release of 2021 brings you back to the world of UK dance music with Dampé -- the solo project of Joe Munday, a musician, producer and DJ from South London. Joe's foundation in dance music stems from becoming a regular on the floor at influential parties like Fwd>> and You're A Melody. Dampé brings together these London sounds with worldwide influences and nuanced, ethereal production to create something entirely his own. With a string of releases on Berlin's Dirt Crew Records, and a monthly show on the venerable Rinse FM, Dampé has carved out a space for his sonic brand of introspective, deep UK dance music. Spurred by a chance meeting with the Darker Than Wax crew in London in 2018, an instant relationship between artist and label flourished through our shared sonic ethos. After numerous setbacks from the chaos of 2020, the label finally shares Dampé's label debut with the world: Oil. A polished, wide-ranging work in its own right, Oil runs the gamut from moments of lush, meditative sound design, to banging mutant-Bruk and flailing percussive dancefloor cuts. Kicking off with restless ambient excursion "Jawahar Park", into the deep, evolving dancefloor affair with title track "Oil", and rounding out with the shimmering slo-mo house of "Flora Waves", the first side of the record showcases Dampé's sonic range and his unique approach to forging new sounds. On the flip side, "Awning Slapper" is the EP's certified party starter led by distorted bass and accented with fleeting chords and percussion, while "Manzana" brings you on a rhythmic excursion built on saturated found sounds and some made-for-the-Adriatic. Includes Teo Mattress remix.

Dominic J Marshall - Nomad's Land
Dominic J Marshall
Nomad's Land
LP | 2020 | US | Original (Darker Than Wax)
18,89 €* 20,99 € -10%
Release:2020 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Within the genetic makeup of Darker Than Wax, jazz is the key. After nearly 8 years of existence as a label, we are proud to present a record that we feel truly contributes to the pantheon of jazz music. Welcome to Nomad’s Land - a sprawling, dreamy, brutally honest album from British pianist and producer Dominic J Marshall. A veteran of the live the circuit (notably touring with Cinematic Orchestra) and already an accomplished recording artist, Dominic is both virtuosic and classically-trained, yet completely free of any musical or sonic constraints. His sound is infused with electronica and cosmic soul at every turn - deep, dubby, and drawing on diverse inspirations. Nomad’s Land is essentially an honest reflection of the artist’s life experiences - inspired by people, relationships, psychedelic experiences, and human existence. The album also represents Dominic’s first outing as a vocalist, bouncing between soulful singing, spoken word, and freestyle rap. This vocal element is crucial to the album’s impact, adding a layer of heart and truth to these deeply personal compositions. Deep diversity can be found throughout the record, from the sino-grime inflected Time Unremembered, to the lush piano-trio vibes on Feeling, to the glitchy breakbeat jazz hybridity of DMT. Yet despite these seemingly disparate shades, Nomad’s Land is a singular statement and front-to-back listening experience, unified by beautiful production and grounded in raw musicality.
Michele Manzo - All Rise
Michele Manzo
All Rise
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Darker Than Wax)
20,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
While jazz and funk are at the core of Michele Manzo's musical foundation, the Italian artist deftly draws upon his inspirations in hip-hop, dub, and Brazilian music as both an instrumentalist and producer. But above genres, inimitable grooves are the key driver of his work, and in his grooves one can hear the vibe of a moment being captured and perpetuated for eternity. With this combination of musical depth and raw feeling, it is no surprise Michele hascrossed paths with Darker Than Wax, and we feel truly blessed to present his LP 'ALL RISE' to the world.'ALL RISE' is a genuine reflection of Manzo's art form, which sees so many different styles and influences coming together in the most natural, organic way. Everything was recorded live using bass, synth bass, guitar, old analogue keyboards, blended together with modern synths, dub delays and ambient fx - giving off the familiar warmth of boom bap and progressive stimulation of neo-soul. The pervasive harmonies and clever use of chords give the album a real musical depth, but grounded with an effortless, natural approach to creation.
Fzpz - Hidden Personas
Hidden Personas
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Darker Than Wax)
19,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
FZPZ’s Hidden Personas is a poetic dichotomy of traditional and modern, classical and electronic, cultural and ethnic. It is also an apex of maturity, culture, and inspiration. Even the titles illustrate an episodic narrative, each a distinct persona and trait of the artist, revealed while on a personal journey of self-discovery. This new resonance draws influences from 70s Soul, Neo-Soul, Jazz and even classical. The distinct orchestral soundscape is a significant dissonance from the usual microwave and throwaway beats, which also reflects his current influences of Phyllis Hyman, Miles Davis, and you hear a lot of Yutaka in “Swordsman”. Hidden Personas is executed with sophisticated dexterity, a clear indication of a new direction forward for FZPZ.
