First Listen: Trance Wax – ‘Trance 7’ (Trance Wax)

The trance revival continues with the second forthcoming vinyl-only release from new label Trance Wax, an offshoot of parent label Tusk Wax, whose output sees classics of the genre reimagined for modern-day dance floors and late night euphoria.

Supposedly the work of a well established artist who can’t reveal their identity due to sample clearance issues, artist Trance Wax first emerged with a four-track EP last September, which saw ’90s anthems like Greece 2000’s ‘Three Drives’ or BT’s ‘Flaming June’ brewed with breakbeat textures and reignited as contemporary club weapons.

Carefully selected in sets by a number of high-profile DJs, Trance Wax One’s limited copies were quickly swept-up, with raised prices now residing only on Discogs. As Trance Wax Two emerges on the horizon, we premier ‘Trance 7’, a rework of Yves Deruyter’s ‘Back to Earth’, slowed to techno spheres with damaging low-end and grinding repetition built to deadly effect.

With support from the likes of Dusky, Waze & Odyssey, Bicep, Black Madonna and Jackmaster, you can stream ‘Trance 7’ in full below.

Forthcoming on Trance Wax Records, Trance Wax Two can be ordered via Juno.
