Changing Shape – Never Ends

SexOnWax has established a reputation as a leader in the progressive scene, and this gem from Omid 16B’s alter ego Changing Shape does the label proud. Quintessentially synth-driven, the tight arpeggiated bassline draws on acid influences, never overstepping the mark, and remains juxtaposed expertly against the track’s beats, creating a mid-set must.

NEW5 – Surprised

Leading Omid 16B’s SexOnWax imprint into new sonic territory is the aptly-named ‘Surprised’ by NEW5. Opening with an evolving, enveloping filmic sequence, it’s just over 2 minutes into the track before the beats drop. Languorously building on the opening sequence, the rhythm drives things forward whilst the synth-work lies irresolutely upon it, determined to take things easy. A grooving, chilled number perfect for summer. Buy on Beatport:

Feroziana – Revival

The subtle start to this track does not last long, quickly harnessing a heavy electronic energy that is sustained throughout. This track is certainly one for the early hours and underground nights.

Memory – Spoon Of Baby

Deep and immersive from the off, Memory’s ‘Spoon Of Baby’ creates a whole melodic universe from evolving pads, soaring synths and enveloping vocals. ‘Etnia’ is a laid-back, engrossing journey through progressive tropes. Together these are two stand-out tracks that really defines the SexOnWax Recordings sound. Buy:
