Let's welcome the amazing Buenos Aires-based DJ and Producer Javier Denevi back on We Play Wax. Last time we had the pleasure of interviewing him and now we have the great honor of putting his very own strictly vinyl podcast episode. It's hot, it's groovy and it's going to rock your flip flops off. Have a great weekend and enjoy the sun!
We find ourselves today right in the middle of summer and it's only getting hotter. And that's because Alessio Collina, the guy behind the remix from Degio's 'Questione Interiore' delivers a scorching sun-drenched podcast episode filled with the hottest house jams around and, of course, his very own remix for 'Sigaretta'. And what a better time to unleash it that on a perfect summer Friday afternoon, to get that weekend vibe going on strong.
We know this podcast comes after quite the break, but we promise there's more to come so stay tuned and enjoy!
We Play Wax launched on November 1, 2013, as an online musical exhibition dedicated to the most enduring audio medium of all time: vinyl. In just over 3 years, WPW has grown slowly and steadily going through all from a record reviews site to a more robust, fully realized brand – replete with in-depth artist interviews and a monthly podcast, that has also expanded into event production in both Bucharest and Rotterdam. This spring, after the successful debut EP from 2015, We Play Wax brings you their second release: a showcase of one of Italy’s most talented new-kid-on-the-block: Degio’s, that also sees his good friend Alessio Collina on the remixing duties.
We Play Wax make a welcome return with their 2nd vinyl release. The series this time fronted by Italy’s Degio’s with his new EP - 'Questione Interiore'.
On the A1 we have Sigaretta, featuring a classic stabbing staccato piano that plays call and response with a beautifully resonate bassline allowing this track to ebb and flow making the playful energy of the track roll and roll. Moving into the A2 we find Alessio Collina on remix duties. The man brings a slightly more tripped-out take on the original allowing his effortlessly cool riff to meander whilst his snappy drum work and acid bassline punctuate the groove.
Flipping the record, we find Degio’s Civico 3, a more raw and tracky affair and surely a winning tool for dance floor action. Solid Machine groove vibes with a tough 909 hat complement the bubbly acid bassline set to carve any dance floor out. For the final track on the record, Binari Paralleli, we have a lovely dark twist on the genre as the producer strips back a Chicago inspired acid jam with some serious swagger about it. This record drops on the 12th of May just in time for the summer and those long hot parties that inspired this sun-drenched EP.
Joe Manish is the kind of DJ who plays with just as much dedication whether the crowd is made of thousands or just of himself. This says a lot about his love for music and I am proud to say I have learned many things from him. I learned for example that you can photoshop yourself to look better on the Internet. I also learned that a DJ set should be surprising and sexy - that's why he always packs crazy mind tricks in his record bag. Joe likes to play vinyl but he mostly likes to play with his heart. And looking at the calendar date, this recording comes spot on! Being around him for a while already, I have seen the many musical shapes he takes, but this one is a whole new carnival. Enjoy the podcast!
Time sure flies when you're having fun. It's January 2017 already and you know what this means, right? It's time for a new podcast episode of course! For our 30th one we're travelling all the way to Hamburg, Germany and into the musical world of a super cool, very talented and highly dedicated DJ and record collector. Audiorität is quite the music authority (yes, pun intended) over in his native town on Elbe and he strongly believes that "in times of opulence and overload everywhere, a distinct selection of what is good has become more important than ever before."
But don't just take our word for it, go ahead and press that play button and hear for yourself what the fuss is all about!
