UK label Axe on Wax are back with yet another sublabel, with Saint-Petersburg producer Meowsn (soundcloud)’ set to inaugurate it. AOWW001 Too Damn Straight EP compiles 4 fun numbers stacked with nostalgic samples, catchy vocal hooks, jazzy improvisations and bouncy basslines.
Our track is Untitled sitting on A2. An endearing sentimental charm is set from the opening, with a warm glitchy fuzziness wobbling between short, filtered vocal jabs. As the bass kicks start to steady us, we become strapped into a distinctive, feel-good groove held together by a bright chordal melody on jazz keys. Meowsn periodically interrupts the momentum by playfully chucking in some cheeky pauses or energetic vocal samples, and it feels like we’re switching channels on an old colour TV.
The first AOWW is set for an October release. Pre-order the vinyl here!
