Carl Cox has launched a new label with a focus on live electronic acts. Dubbed Awesome Soundwave (ASW), its debut release is courtesy of label co-founder Christopher Coe, aka Digital Primate.
The label’s debut EP will be available 02nd March, and features Coe’s forthcoming album track ‘Headland’ along with remixes by Reinier Zonneveld, Fabio Neural, Robin Kampschoer and Sly Faux.
That will be followed up with a full-length release, ‘MNTS of SLNC (Mountains of Silence)’ in May. That album’s live show is reportedly inspired by the mountains and landscapes of Coe’s Irish homeland.
"My idea was to create a label where artists who actually can make their music live, and perform their music live, have a stable where they can be themselves, be able to create the music without any boundaries and to feel free in the sense of releasing music without prejudice in any way, shape or form,” Cox says of the label.
This March, Cox is hitting the big screen with Martin Garrix.
‘Headland’, which Cox premiered during his recent Essential Mix, can be previewed below:
