London’s Axe On Wax label is successfully taking form as a major player in the art of releasing wax. Now onto their fourth release, the digital-physical hybrid imprint see’s track-listings from Point Blanks Cera Alba, as well as incredible productions from Oli Furness, Kinddimmer and the Israeli Rosenhaft, who previously caught our attention via his Made Fresh Daily player.

Alba’s ‘Jux’ is responsible for launching this one, the wide percussion and slick synth pads breath nicely above the dark, crunchy bass line. Second in line is Oli Furness’s stripped back and some what melodic mix of Jux. The smart use of vocals and fat drums pushes this one strongly towards peak time.

The final half of Raw Axes see’s Cera Alba forfeit the reigns to groovy compadre Rosenhaft. Armed with his well sliced ‘Unplugged Vibes’, he brings a unique fix on deep tech to the EP, his inclusion of a pulsating synth tone and strong drum hits make is especially DJ friendly but still crafted to fit any system.

Closing it up is Kindimmer, who’s groovy, all out tech remix is both deep and inspiring. It features unusual samples that see’s the combination of running water, eerie outerspace-esque atmospheres and club heavy drum grooves.
