Darker Than Wax may have established their bedroom/headphones sound with their recent steady flow of diverse releases - but they also thrive on the heavier side of the spectrum.
Organising gigs and parties comes with running a music label - revered nights such as the Brown Bag Series (with menswear label SIFR), DMZ (with Midnight Shift), 3rd Party (with Velvet Underground / Zouk), and more recently, Beats N Beyond has allowed DTW to showcase its appreciation towards a more club-oriented sound, and the ability to keep feet shuffling and heads bopping.
With DTW Singles, our artists and affiliates are given a chance to express a rousing dimension of the label's sounds - ranging from Chicago and Detroit-influenced House bangers, UK Bass / Garage to South side Deep Trap, all while still maintaining the distinct soul and rhythm - but wired for an all-nighter. We are all accustomed to that feeling.
The second release comes from our very own genre-killer Milo Mills. This man does it all : From Bass numbers to Hip-hop to House to Footwork to Deep Southern bangers. Those who are familiar with his 'Paradise Soon' Ep released last year will already know what he's capable of, and his recent monster track 'Sweeter Than Rice Cake' and remix of Janet Jackson have earned him new fans in the form of Diplo, Majestic Casual and more.
'Racks' takes us back to the raw gritty house vibe that we all adore so much at the HQ. It's a pure unadulterated jacking number, with chunky 4/4 kicks and peaktime chords. This track will set fire to any dance floor, but of course have a listen first and decide that for yourself. :)
