WMR-001 – Scienz of Life – Applause (Clap Your Hands) b/w John Robinson – Shut Em Down 7”
Staring the slow extinction of traditional record stores down both barrels, Australia's own Wax Museum Records makes a defiantly bold move by releasing their very first slab of vinyl; a 7" that links Melbourne-based producer Inkswel with New York underground legends Scienz Of Life.
Blunted headnodic beats are the order of the day, with Inkswel serving up two premium-grade joints of Dilla-esque hip-hop for your ears. Lil' Sci & ID4 Windz rhyme divine over heavy hand-clap percussion and exotic samples on 'Applause (Clap Your Hands)', then Lil' Sci takes the helm solo as John Robinson on the flip over slap-chopped abstract jazz flutes on 'Shut Em Down'. Fresh graphics from the Project Mooncircle crew make this a highly-collectable limited-edition release with only 500 being pressed.
So while everyone else is jumping on the MP3 bandwagon, Melbourne's vinyl preservationists are preparing to hit you with a slew of hot new releases strictly on wax only. Even if you are rocking Serato these days, you're still gonna need this killer new 7" for your crate.
Here is some press already hitting the web in Europe!
