Darker Than Wax Presents: DTW SINGLES

Darker Than Wax may have established their bedroom/headphones sound with their recent steady flow of diverse releases - but they also thrive on the heavier side of the spectrum.
Organising gigs and parties comes with running a music label - revered nights such as the Brown Bag Series (with menswear label SIFR), DMZ (with Midnight Shift), 3rd Party (with Velvet Underground / Zouk), and more recently, Beats N Beyond has allowed DTW to showcase its appreciation towards a more club-oriented sound, and the ability to keep feet shuffling and heads bopping.

With DTW Singles, our artists and affiliates are given a chance to express a rousing dimension of the label's sounds - ranging from Chicago and Detroit-influenced House bangers, UK Bass / Garage to South side Deep Trap, all while still maintaining the distinct soul and rhythm - but wired for an all-nighter. We are all accustomed to that feeling.

Following his successful Paradise Soon EP (DTW 21), Milo Mills delivers the choicest cuts once again for the second release under our “Singles” series.
From his recent bass-infused “Sweeter Rice Cake” (clocking more than 100K listens on his Soundcloud), to his steamy refixes of Janet Jackson's “Rock With You” and Ta-ku X JMSN's "Make it Last" (both featured on Diplo & Friends' Evolution Radio show), Milo Mills demonstrates he is no one trick pony. "Racks" is a straight up house number that takes it up a notch with a strong momentum, slapped with unassuming nuances of soca and boogie. It clearly reveals his genre defying tendencies, and we embrace the irreverent, schizophrenic ear in music (you can tell from our personal crates of jazz, techno, drum & bass, and dub etc).

about

Darker Than Wax Singapore

With Darker Than Wax, the music has been reduced to its most concentrated form.
It’s pretty pure and simple really. It's basically a statement. A statement on the pervasiveness of black music and the influence it has had on countless genres.
A statement that it’s all about bringing it into the future.
A statement that music should have depth.
Expression and uninhibited creativity is the key.
