Interview with Wax Worx
Where does the name Wax Worx come from?
I learnt to DJ on Technics turntables and have been collecting Vinyl for 20 years. So when i started producing I would reference tracks from my collection, find out where the samples used in those tracks came from, then use those original samples to make my own versions of my favourite track. You can check many of these out and download them from my Soundcloud. (free downloads playlist)
How long have you been producing/DJing?
I started DJing before I was even old enough to get into clubs and I have been producing as Wax Worx since 2014.
What is your dream venue/festival to play?
Robot Heart Stage at Burning Man.
Which producer (alive or passed) would be your dream collab?
What’s on the horizon for Wax Worx this year and next?
So this year I have a string of releases coming up on Starchild Musik, Talk Of The Town, Stashed, and my own label Shanghaied. My next gig is in my home town of Brighton this weekend, I’m back out play to Ibiza, will be playing a few shows out in Amsterdam during ADE and finishing the year with some shows in Thailand.
