Moscow based imprint pushers Wax Ninja recently launched a new sub label named SubUrbz, this to cater specifically for various artist complications. To open SubUrbz music catalogue the sub label has featured four music production talents KSKY, Babak, Pak0 and Xio whom all hail from the Russian Federation to take apart in the labels maiden release, Jam EP Volume 1.
A1. KSKY – What U Want
Saint Petersburg is home to electronic house music project KSKY. Willing in most instances to use nothing more than a westernized Christian name – Paul – this performer brands his italo- and nu-disco output with an “astral” phrasing to match that of other stargazing DJs. KSKY refers to himself as a “‘chordy’ maniac… a cosmo-romantic from a deep city.” It’s worth noting that his surname can be discovered with a little effort: Korzhensky.
A2. BABAK – Forgive & Forget
SubUrbz entrusts Grigory Babak another Saint Petersburg native with the inner most groove of side A on the record. Regarded as the ‘black horse’ of the Russian house music scene and at the same time as one of its main hopes, Babak offers us a stand out percussive and mildly psychedelic groove titled ‘Forgive and Forget’.
B1. XIO – Nine-Ohh-Nine
Avid vinyl collector, disk jockey, Wax Ninja record store founder and SubUrbz label head Artem Malev adds music producer to his long list of abilities. Going by his production monger XIO he puts forward ‘Nine-Ohh-Nine‘ to the outer groove of side B.
B2. PAK0 – Alright
Enters Denis Grigoriev better know as Pak0 to the Russian Federation deep house massive to complete the first release under sub label SubUrbz with ‘Alright’.
Collaborators Note: Based on its various moods and music styles, this record would definitely become a secret weapon in your vinyl bag. Whatever you prefer – stringy melodic house, dark disco, breakbeat or classic house, you will find something to jam to on JAM EP VOLUME 1.
