AMIN PAYNE RELEASES NEW EP “SAFFRON”

“Come on a nostalgic journey of exotic Eastern sounds resonating with my early childhood in Iran and ever growing inspiration from neighboring lands of Turkey, India and the Arab Nations. This is my way of celebrating and sharing the rich history, poetry and beautiful sounds often ignored by mass media.” – Amin Payne

Local beat-maker Amin Payne drops a spicy EP on Berlin’s Beat Geeks label! After hearing the collection of  bubbling, ethnically-diverse tracks, the ‘Geeks decided that “Saffron” was too good to just be a digital release and pressed it on wax. You can get your copy here!

all_ears

House shoes has kindly organised a screening of “ALL EARS” a documentary focused on the LA beat scene! This will be the first public screening of the film in Australia and possibly the last.

Film info

All Ears is a documentary focusing on the famous Beat scene of Los Angeles. The L.A. community behind Low End Theory is often cited as origin of a now worldwide movement, and All Ears offers an insight into the minds of some of the producers responsible for the thriving scene (dak, Ras G, Sacred, Kutmah, Dibia$e, House Shoes, DJ Nobody & many more). Looking at the network of record labels, collectives and events that have formed a united community that is continuing to grow and diversify by the day, the documentary also reflects upon the great impact of the scene’s two most notable figures, Madlib and the late J Dilla.

Tickets are extremely limited due to the size of the venue. There will be 2 screenings,  Wed 28th and Thurs 29th September with 20 tickets available for each. The Wednesday 28th screening will include a Q&A with House shoes and the Thursday 29th screening will include an introduction and meet & greet with House shoes.

PLUTONIC LAB “DEEP ABOVE THE NOISE” LP OUT NOW!

Wax Museum are proud to announce the release of WMR-007 by Plutonic Lab on our in-house label! Get your copy today from the store or online!

“Eleven years since his last album, Codes Over Colours, veteran Melbourne producer Plutonic Lab returns with a swag of stylish cuts and eclectic guest spots. It’s a striking message is clear: Plutonic Lab isn’t afraid to mix things up, playing multiple instruments and working filmic samples into his broad hip-hop landscape. It’s where he’s backed by rhymes, though, that everything gels best – see “The Crib Ft. Guilty Simpson”, a mellow but relentless centrepiece.”
