SEX041 Andy Slate – Indian Ocean EP

Omid 16B’s SexOnWax imprint returns with the ‘Indian Ocean EP’ – both his edit and prolific artist Andy Slate’s original mean business from the off, with tribalesque percussion communicating incessantly, summoning the Sun to rise again ‘What You Need’ lives up to its name, stripping the audio right back to the essentials, the intoxicated layers of question-and-answer rhythmic choreography segueing elegantly into the final cut on the EP, DIRTYHERTZ’s take on ‘Indian Ocean’, a more uptempo envisioning of the track, replete with swirling sawtooth synth stabs and an almost sonar-like...

SEX040: Voodoo Corporation – Free Minds

Building on their superb release this summer on Alola Records, Voodoo Corporation are back, this time on the SexOnWax imprint, with an expansive, laid-back sultry house jaunt – brooding staccato rhythmic bass tones duck and weave through spoken words, synth pads and disembodied pitched vocal flashes in the original, with label head Omid 16B adding to proceedings with his edit....

SEX039: Diego Moreno – Freakyness EP

Diego Moreno delivers a 4 track EP for SexOnWax, filled with dark, funky baselines, dirty vocals, sharp knife acid stabs and west coast style pads. Superbly illustrating his various musical influences on this EP, each track has its own personality, all rooted in the old school whilst forging forward with a fresh deep house. These 4 tracks are bound to turn heads and twist minds on any day or night dance floor. Diego shows clearly with this release that variety is key, and as such with this EP and a full length coming in 2014, will no doubt once again cement himself as a very real voice in the global house music conversation....

SEX038: Casanova – Hear Me Out

Conceived originally as a moniker for movie soundtracks, by fusing the Portuguese words for ‘house’ and ‘new’, Casanova is an alternative musical output for Mindskap and this release on SexOnWax Recordings is a dream 10 years in the making… Inspired by such classics as ‘Driving To Heaven’ by label boss Omid 16B, this talented producer has several releases under his belt and continues to innovate with a haunting, evolving, almost tribal take on the current house sound. An incessant, engrossing hook leads ever-forward to a deep melodic denouement, whilst Omid on remix duties adds his unique sound to the release – with additional tracks...

SEX037: John Creamer & Stephane K – I W...

SEX036: Changing Shape – Electric Jungle EP

SexOnWax’s next release sees Changing Shape return with this stunning 2-tracker Changing Shape juxtaposes big bass lines with edgy synth riffs to great acid-techno inspired effect, causing floor-pounding pandemonium throughout and guaranteeing the inclusion of ‘TLA’ in many a discerning DJ’s toolbox, whilst from the opening percussion motifs, ‘Jungle Fever’ imparts an irresistible groove that evolves throughout, energetically self-confident and rhythmically robust… a hypnotic, unique treat, as at home on the streets of Rio as it is the best dancefloors....

SEX033: Changing Shape – Always (So Good)/Ca...

Changing Shape is one of Omid’s aliases that goes back to 98 when Airtight Records was set up by himself and Red Jerry from Hooj. Omid released 3 EPs on vinyl including the critically-acclaimed METAMORPHOSIS EP back in 1998, now remastered, and will be releasing 2 EPs with an LP in 2013. “So Good” is a deep yet uplifting affair with funky disco elements that drive the track and make it versatile enough to drop at any given time. “Call me” is deep house with a flavour to touch peak time and early hours, yet also a head turner with its melodies and constant filter drops and re build. More new material will be...
