PERCEPTIONS EP (MENNIE REMIX)
12" Vinyl UK
next Infuse banger...
London duo Wax On Mare St. debut on Infuse this November with their ‘Perceptions’ EP, backed by a remix from Mennie.
Formed in 2015 by London-based duo James Puentes and Jordan Mina (MIINA), the Wax On Mare St. guise has quickly become a rising name of note within the city’s ever-evolving house scene, with releases to date on imprints including Blind Vision, Roush and most recently, E1even Records, appearances across the likes of fabric, Studio9294 and Eastern Electrics, and a monthly slot on East London’s Netil Radio. Following on from a busy summer of gigs, mid-November welcomes a debut on FUSE sister imprint Infuse as the duo touch down on the label with Italian talent Mennie also stepping up on remix duties for his first appearance on the label.
The bubbling ‘Round Up’ kicks things off as the duo combine rich chords alongside low-slung bass patterns, hooky vocal samples and slick hats, whilst ‘Pepper & Spice’ lays the focus on skipping percussion and hazy synths throughout. Next, sci-fi electronics and further bright chord melodies go to work throughout the laidback ‘Maximum Highness’, before Mennie’s up-front, energy-driven interpretation of the lead track rounds out proceedings with authority.
