Following the release of their debut Bodyclock series in 2020, Singaporean label Darker Than Wax now unveils the second volume of the series, presenting the identity of the label's sprawling worldwide family. The first volume, a natural extension of the label's DNA, illustrated an attack of nocturnal club sounds, rooted in the culture curated by the pioneers of dancefloor music. Bodyclock Vol. 2 sees the new school of producers push the limits of musical self-discovery. Compiled by DTW label co-founder Dean Chew, Bodyclock Vol. 2 sees Darker Than Wax curating a cross-continental offering, highlighting the work of eight producers living around the world -- dipping into the respective scenes of Vancouver, Osaka and Tokyo, Cape Town, Vienna, Karachi, Amsterdam, and beyond. Bodyclock Vol. 2 takes listeners on a globally diverse and greatly vivid dance journey. Opening with Laza's "WTBWH" (the project's first single) -- the record's pace is quickly set, with intense, driving drum patterns and soulful reverberating keys. Throughout the project, acid laced tracks from label alumni Akio Nagase and newcomer Tollcrane meet left-field ethereal movements from B.Visible and Teo Mattress. Joined by RGL's '80s-esque sleazy sonics and UNOS's two-step drums and oscillating basslines. Bodyclock Vol. 2 is closed out by Tiro!'s "Charcuterie" -- which rolls gently through the ether, supplying ice-y keys and calming frequencies. Another essential slice of worldwide dancefloor action from the Darker Than Wax camp. A diverse compilation of deep dance sounds featuring a global array of artists from the likes of Japan, Pakistan, Belgium, Netherlands, and South Africa A celebration of dance culture and its resilience. From the boogie to the deep house to the broken beats, Bodyclock Vol. 2 continues to bring underrated artists to the fore. For fans of: Apron Records, X-Kalay, Lobstertheremin, Incensio, and Buttersessions.
