A duo by the name of Wax Future has been captivating listeners with a refined funk drenched, hip-hop driven sound. In 2016 they dropped their 2nd EP with Adapted Records titled “Make Me Feel Again” which takes listeners on a immersive musical journey, blurring the boundaries of genre. Tracks like Grime Piece showcase the advanced sample collaging and production techniques of producer Connor Hansell paired with the guitar mastery of Keith Wadsworth, while tracks like “A Long Journey Into Night” showcase the storytelling and songwriting that Wax Future has come to be known for. Wax Future’s sophomore release opened up big doors for them as they began to take the national stage with opening support slots with artists like Big Gigantic, Opiuo, Pretty Lights, Tipper and more.
The Philadelphia Duo has cultivated a dedicated and loyal fan base, that has been self proclaimed with the name “Wax Mob”.
