Following the release of their debut ‘Bodyclock’ series in 2020, Singaporean label Darker Than Wax now unveil the second volume of the series, presenting the identity of the label’s sprawling worldwide family. The first volume, a natural extension of the label’s DNA, illustrated an attack of nocturnal club sounds, rooted in the culture curated by the pioneers of dancefloor music. BodyClock Vol.2 sees the new school of producers push the limits of musical self-discovery.
Compiled by DTW label co-founder Dean Chew, ‘Bodyclock Vol.2’ sees Darker Than Wax curating a cross-continental offering, highlighting the work of eight producers living around the world – dipping into the respective scenes of Vancouver, Osaka & Tokyo, Cape Town, Vienna, Karachi, Amsterdam & beyond. ‘Bodyclock Vol.2’ takes listeners on a globally diverse and greatly vivid dance journey.
Opening with Laza’s ‘WTBWH’ (the project’s first single) - the record’s pace is quickly set, with intense, driving drum patterns and soulful reverberating keys. Throughout the project, acid laced tracks from label alumni Akio Nagase and newcomer Tollcrane meet left-field ethereal movements from B.Visible and Teo Mattress. Joined by RGL’s 80’sesque sleazy sonics and UNOS’s 2 step drums and oscillating basslines. BodyClock Vol.2 is closed out by Tiro!’s ‘Charcuterie’ – which rolls gently through the ether, supplying icey keys and calming frequencies. Another essential slice of worldwide dancefloor action from the Darker Than Wax camp.
