Justin Jay and crew are sailing around the world and back for the debut of Fantastic Wax, a new vinyl-only offshoot of Fantastic Voyage. For the inaugural release, they’ve tapped international man of music Romain FX.
Following up his Tasty Edits EP on Fantastic Voyage last December, the Hong Kong-based DJ, party promoter, and radio host has reworked four hard-to-find African cuts in hopes of giving them a second life. Informed by over a decade of experience playing DJ sets across the globe, all four tracks have been edited and remixed to fit nicely into your rotation.
On deck for our premiere is Gambian Neptune, a track that sails strongly from the onset with a moody melody, spaced out drums and an epic vocal. Arranged (or perhaps rearranged) for maximum effect, RFX navigates us past the intro into a variety of catchy riffs and breakdowns while regularly returning to the vocal hook that ties the song together.
True to the label’s founding principles of friendship, fun, and freedom, Fantastic Wax 001 is an exciting dive into music unknown that’s set to make waves in the crowded sea of vinyl edits. Check out all four tracks when the record ships August 26th.
