As Frankie sang, ‘and now, the end is near’, which is certainly true for our long standing Trash The Wax compilation series.
Over the years, it has released some absolute dance floor smashers by established names in the art of bangers as well as emerging music makers showcasing their fresh sounds.
Initially, we wanted to establish Trash The Wax outside of the ‘kick-hat-snare stuck over a Sister Sledge sample’ style edits that were dropping weekly. The result was a collection of cuts aimed at the dance floor, which would also appeal to fans of electronic music. But all things come to an end, and with this 10th release, we are finishing on a high. As expected, there are disco ticklers aplenty from renowned party people such as Late Nite Tuff Guy, Ed Wizard, Bill Brewster, Pablo & Shoey, Danny Russell & Ronald Christoph and Yam Who.
Tracks such as Leon Sweet’s Sunny Bigler made their way into the record boxes of the likes of Luke Unabomber, Maurice Fulton and Chris Duckenfield as well as the airwaves of 6Music. Deckard’s rework of the theme from ‘The Warriors’ created scenes at ALFOS in Glasgow with Sean Johnston saying, ‘I’ve never seen as many shirtless middle age blokes go as mental as they did when that dropped!’
On a more twisted gutter style disco tip, there is Richard Seaborne’s ‘ Is This Acid?’ which topped the Paper best ever sellers on Beatport for months, Richard Norris’s ‘Glow’ is textbook space disco, the low slung sludge of James Rod & Aleito’s ‘Raum 909’ and the Speak & Spell narrated Acidisco by Andy Buchan. There are also two brand new cuts from TTW family members Boblebad & D.S.D., plus more killer music than we can shake a disco stick at. The phrase ‘all hitters and no shitters’ has never been more apt.
