Get To Know D.Know And His Weekly Wax

ww19SquareYou may have noticed that Waxhole has been heavy into the South African scene for awhile now.  Even though we’re all based in the States, South Africa has been a huge pull for our musical likes and tastes.  From Jam Jar, and PH Fat, to the Gravy Crew, we’ve featured a ton of music from that scene.  Then there’s the Do Work Records fellows.  The Do Work label (Facebook, Twitter), started and run by Das Kapital and his manager (and wonderful human being), Tim Medcraft (who also manages the dude DJ Cable), is starting the laborious process of getting releases from their awesome roster, getting merch and just generally getting the name out there.  Besides Das Kapital, there is Leechi, RVWR, Relative Two, VaVa, Vitamin E, Hendrick Joerges, and D.Know.

D. Know (Soundcloud, Twitter), one half of the Deep House duo Relative Two, gets a little darker and a little grimier with his solo stuff. The techno influences seep into his works of house, bass, and well..techno, is a man with a very bright future and his skills are such that once the releases start flowing, we’ll all benefit!  Speaking of releases, he has a series, entitled ‘Re:know’ where he takes wonderful original tunes and re-treats them in his own special way.  He has three in the bag and will release them one every two weeks starting next week (watch this space!), and there will be more as he flexes his muscles on some of the hottest tunes of the day.

This mix, though, shows that the dude not only has chops, but he has a great ear as well.  The taste level of the mix not only shows tunes from artists we know, but artists we might not, and oh yeah there’s plenty of D.Know goodness in there as well.  Strap in, lock in, and more importantly, tuck in!
