Wax Motif & Neoteric presents Strictly Rhythms Vol 09 – out now!


It’s here! It’s finally here. This took us quite some time to get together. We were so honored when asked to do this compilation, we wanted to make sure it was something special. We did our thing to a few, and asked some talented friends to help out, and this is what transpired. 27 exclusive tracks from us and our friends, all pulled from the legendary Strictly catalog, and remixed and edited with love. Thank you to all the original artists, and those that put in work on these new versions. Hope you dig it!

The Strictly Rhythms series is all about one individual’s vision of Strictly Rhythm, their personal choices of original tracks, reworks and remixes. Strictly Rhythms 9 breaks into a whole new attitude with DJs, producers and scenesters Wax Motif and Neoteric. Their novel and unselfish vision was to act more as curators by spreading the love to their entire extended crew of fellow producers. The result is an incredible collection of 27 classics (old and new) remixed by 25 different remixers. Yes, every track is a brand new re-edit, rework or remix, from Monkey Safari’s brilliant take on Chocolate Puma and Bingo Players’ Touch Me to Yolanda Be Cool’s remix of Erick Morillo’s Jazz it Up. Armand Van Helden, Roger Sanchez and Kenny Dope are among the original producers represented, but this isn’t about the same old favourites. For added freshness, the players have taken care to unearth those buried gems: Subb-an choose Black Magic’s Let It Go, Oliver $ goes for DJ Sneak’s Keep On Groovin’ while Drop The Lime tackles Ultraworld’s Life After Death. More blood? You’ll just have to check the entire, bulging tracklist for that.

The Slow Waves – Underbelly / Undertow

MC001

ARTIST: THE SLOW WAVES
TITLE: UNDERBELLY / UNDERTOW
FORMAT: DIGITAL
CAT#: MCR-001

I’m very proud to introduce the first release on my label, Main Course! Here we unveil our first release from enigmatic band The Slow Waves. Recently acclaimed for their remix work for the likes of Crookers, Mary Epworth, and The Young Empires, this 2 track release is their first outing on the public stage. The Slow Waves’ sound is an ever evolving, synth-laden voyage taking listeners from the edge of the beach, to the edge of the galaxy. Underbelly evokes imagery of an cinematic night drive into the infinite, lead by a sinister bassline and arpeggios. Undertow feels just as at home on your playlist, as it would during the emotional climax of a movie. It’s the sound of bliss and wonderment; a minimal driving drum pattern with constantly building guitars and synths. Both Underbelly and Undertow are sublime, stirring pieces of mood music, and we are very proud to introduce you to the sounds of The Slow Waves.

Main Course

I know you haven’t heard much from me recently. I’ve been working on building up other projects, more related to the business side of things, than on the DJ tip. One of those big projects is Main Course!

And so it begins. It’s been a long time in the making, but we are finally ready to show ourselves to the world. For so many years, I have worked with, and for others. For their label, the career or otherwise. I’ve learned a great deal, and helped out many along the way. Now it’s time to start working towards one focused and common goal. That goal is Main Course, and there are a bunch of services we offer, and angles we attack from. Check out our About page for more information. If what you read interests you, please get in touch. Stay tuned for our exciting releases on our label, and keep an eye on the talented artists who comprise our Remix Management agency. But at the very least, just subscribe to our feed – I assure you there will be no shortage of quality, interesting, and occasionally ridiculous content! Thank you all for visiting. Hope you find what you’re looking for. This must be the place.

Playhouse Out now on Top Billin

Alrighty! My dude Astronomar has been killin it for a while now. Remember ‘Had to Move On’ from Turned on Vol 2? We’re so glad to see this EP come to light, as it was a long time in the making. I A&R’d this release and brought it to my good friends at Top Billin’, and the response has been amazing – Style of Eye even called it “The best release on Top Billin yet!”. Yes! And it all started when Mar sent me this idea which I really liked. I messed around, added a few things, sprinkled some drums and bam, ‘Playhouse’ was born. Got a bunch of Soundcloud love on it, but now it’s finally out, and the folks at Gotta Dance Dirty have posted it, check below for free DL! After that, cop the whole EP on Beatport!
