SexOnWax Recordings ‘Summer Sampler’

Omid 16B​ compiles a superb 5 track Summer Sampler for the next release on Sexonwax​ Recordings. Nantais & Paul Hazendonk​ serve up a solid remix of Omid 16B & Alex George​’s ‘Deep Water.’ Oriental-esque strings create an exotic soundscape whilst the percussion ‘scatters’ in and out before settling into a constant driving pace. The synths gradually creep in underneath swooping over the beat whilst the warm, thumping bass keeps the beat grounded. Next up, Alex George’s ‘My Robot Dream’ is a suitably named track. The minimal percussion is layered by ‘glitchy’ melody that creates an almost ‘calculating’ soundscape. The melody weaves itself throughout the beat, leading the charge on an unpredictable groove. LEO PEREZ DJ​ and Garzia’s ‘Flight 2112’ beat rocks back and forth with a gradual throbbing, bassline that moves in to supply a dominant groove and add an air of dark tones, baring a hypnotic nature, deserving of early morning dance floors. The release moves on with Michelangelo & Giacomo’s ‘Cosmic Balance’, a dreamy, tranquil affair. The drums gently patter whilst synth notes swoop back and forth in waves. A subtle melody gently skips over the top creating a soothing, hypnotic feel carrying the listener through a ‘cosmic’ soundscape. Finishing off, Kevin Toro​ keeps it all minimal with ‘Beautiful Illusion.’ The percussion keeps to a steady pace whilst the melodic bass adds a ‘rising’ feel. A catchy synth melody bounces over the top giving the beat a trance like edge. Available —>

John Cosani & Ale Russo – Between Clouds...

John Cosani returns to Omid 16B’s SexOnWax imprint with this 2 track release. Establishing a theme with a simple melodic refrain, Cosani builds in complex rhythmic motifs to drive ‘Hearland’ forward to the huge breakdown that is the hallmark of this label. Collaborating with Ale Russo on ‘Between Clouds’, the pair explore a deeper, more hypnotic aesthetic deserving of early morning floors. Quintessential SexOnWax music for the summer season! Buy:

“If you want to do something, you’ve got to be prepared to do it right now” Omid 16B turns the spotlight on our Editor during his interview...

A little over 12 months ago, I sat down with Omid 16B in London for a candid interview at what was an in depth and passionate look at Omid’s views on the state of the music industry. Fast forward to now and Omid and I recently caught up online and we both agreed to revisit our meeting and for me to fire over some questions, to my surprise, Omid fired back with a few of his own back to me. It is not often I am put in the hot seat, I am more akin to asking the questions. So sit back and enjoy… Click link for full interview — >...

Namatjira – Unknown Source / Mundo Anillo

SexOnWax welcome Namatjira from the Netherlands with this fantastic two tracker, sure to get you going. ‘Unknown Source’ starts with a gentle offering, floaty pads, that lead to a breakdown reminiscent of Omid 16B’s ‘In Between Your Choice’ bringing in a well toned basseline further backing the melodic structure to climax as it drops back in. ‘Mundo Anillo’ takes you straight into a more summer kicked back vibe with sweeping vocals, light melodic synths and warm harmonics. It’s all about the music here at SexOnWax so whilst Joost Van Der Vleuten aka Namatjira may not be a big name just yet, he has certainly put him self in line with making records that will touch the hearts of many for years to come.

Acim – Waiting

New to Omid 16B’s Sexonwax imprint, Acim’s ‘Waiting’ packs a powerful summer punch. First up, the Dub Mix allows the crafted synth tones to breathe and resonate superbly; broad melodic expanses combine skilfully with ringing higher frequencies atop a solid bass groove. The Vox Mix adds an edited, chopped vocal phrase that compliments but doesn’t dominate, broadening the appeal of the track for personal and club listening. Buy:

Dale Middleton – Copper Top (inc Derek Howell remix)...

Dale Middleton’s ‘Copper Top’ receives the remix treatment from Derek Howell, working in synths chords and reverberant sax to lift the track for a dreamlike feel, while Middleton’s original utilises FM tones to great epic effect. Buy:

Ri Za – Going Mad

A warm welcome to Ri Za on Omid 16B’s SexOnWax imprint, and what a debut performance. The result, ‘Going Mad’, is a track infused with summer and fit for the beach, brewed with a distinguished female vocal and addictive melody. A synth heavy mix by Dark Soul Project is more apt for the dancefloor and concludes this dynamic two-track EP. Buy:

Midge – As One (inc Alex George & Roy McLaren remixes)...

Future hero of all genres Mr Alex George adds a groove that will shake any dance floor with ease, while Midge’s ‘As One’ fortuitously teams a dramatic drop with a memorable baseline and the result is incomparably fruitful. A fantastic rework by Roy Mclaren, who recently released on SOW with an epic and sturdy EP, closes the package nicely. Buy:
