Darker Than Wax
South London’s Joe Munday, aka Dampé, has delivered a new EP for Singapore imprint Darker Than Wax. His latest offering flawlessly melds a UK-centric, bass-heavy flavour with house and broken beat, creating productions that will rattle a soundsystem if necessary. The reverberating guitar licks on tracks like ‘Flora Waves’ dream of sunsets and ocean beaches, while ‘Awning Slapper’ encompasses bruk-beats with bubbling synths. ‘Swamp’ steers off into a different direction, taking a soft, meditative approach with field recordings and sombre melodies.
