Apparel Wax - LP001

This time around you might find our gadget (a black condom) a bit odd but there’s something special behind our choice. We thought that in a messed-up world is important to protect ourselves from the wrong experiences, therefore as in love and sex also in music our artists are free to experiment, finding protection behind our label.

 

We are proud to announce the arrival of Apparel Wax LP001, our first LP which opens a new catalogue dedicated to albums.

We began to search the tracks for this Lp with the same guideline ever: the love for the music not thinking about the charts. The amazing artists who are taking part in the collective knew since day 1 that they had to put on a mask if they wanted to partake in this adventure; knowing how important is to “appear” nowadays we wanted to prove that we could make great music without the help of the big names. So far so good.
 

 

For this double vinyl LP we picked amongst the different souls that House Music has got, from Disco to Lo-Fi, always focusing on our “Jazzy” watermark and giving the opportunity to the artists to prove their interpretative skills on this theme once again.

A little reminder that next February 2019, month of the release, Apparel Music will be blowing 9 candles: no better time to celebrate with a new, fresh and energetic record. Let’s talk about the tracks that compose our 1st LP. Listening to this record is like walking around a house where the walls are made of the same concrete but every room has a different atmosphere that you can absorb in each distinct vibration.

A1 draws inspiration from the foundations of Disco Music and it’s the best way to kick it off in style, followed by A2 which is a groovy cinematic variation on the motif. B1 is inspired by UK’s broken-beats from the early 00’s, wisely blended with deep keys and spacey synths while B2 closes the 1st vinyl in the best possible Apparel-ish way with a track that puts together all the elements that make the label recognisable: solid rhythmics, jazzy vibes & groovy vocals. The second vinyl begins with C1 and brings us back to the roots with a tune that tastes like a new version of a classic house sensation with a neat kick drum dialoguing with a crispy clap, alongside alluring vocal samples. Moving on to C2 we find another room, another atmosphere which is pure deep. Flip the vinyl and you’ll see pictures on the walls from one of our favorite movies from the eighties: if you listen carefully, D1 will evocate you familiar words... “Wax on, Wax off...” With D2 we step into the Lo-Fi, a sound that takes back to the present the warmth of the past in a new classy-chic fashion.
