DT691 – Wax On Mare St.


London based duo Wax On Mare St.

James Puentes & MIINA met in 2015, which subsequently led to them joining together to form what is the duo known as Wax On Mare St. Through their London based studio in Netil House (Hackney), the boys have quietly been crafting their skills alongside their ears, into understanding the world of music production.

Even though it’s early days for them. They’ve already managed to see their music attract interest from various labels such as…Blind Vision Records, Roush, Sanity, ASONELDN, Arupa, E1even Records & their most recent release being on INFUSE. The boys have seen their releases receive some really positive feedback from DJ’s and dance floors across the world. Their music has featured in numerous digital charts across various platforms. Which was, without doubt, a nice surprise.

That being said, they also hope to launch their own subsequent label in the near future. Keeping the emphasis on (Vinyl Only) to begin with. Whilst keeping busy with all things music, they have also secured a monthly slot on Netil Radio, which makes total sense seeing that they seem to spend any opportunity at Netil House in their studio!. Why not also host their own show inviting an array of guest’s down to share the decks with. You can catch them broadcasting live & direct across the airwaves from Netil Market each & every second Tuesday of the month, from 9pm – 11pm for the foreseeable future. The show consists of everything we would expect from Wax On Mare St.! Good times coupled along with good music, friends & a laugh or two.

They can also add a number of events & dance floors to their growing portfolio. 2017 saw them debut at Eastern Electrics, which they’ve had the pleasure of returning to every summer since then. Dance floors such as Fabric’s infamous Room 1 are one of a few self-satisfying moments that without a doubt will keep the smiles truly across both of their faces. London may well be the core from which Wax On Mare St. was built, but as things stand this is only the beginning for the duo and with no signs of slowing up anytime soon, it sounds like we can look forward to hearing them delivering their charismatic sound for many years to come. Wherever it may be. Their aim in life is simple, to enjoy what they do as well as continuing to follow their passion & satisfy ears around the world!

Today, they land on the Podcast for the first time. We caught these guys at INFUSE back in January at 93Feet East, it was an immensely enjoyable few hours, so we hit them up to come on the podcast. You can listen to it below, on Mixcloud or iTunes here or Download it Here

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Play it loud & if it’s nice play it twice.

What’s your personal favourite track on it?
How long you got?!.   There were so many in the bags that it really is hard to pick out just one. We think we should leave it for the listeners too decide that, leave us a comment on the mix.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
A carefree approach with no pressure and also the fact we play of the cuff always helps, whilst always trying to let the vibe on the day also do it’s a thing. 

What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
We would have to say that playing at INFUSE, 93 Feet East from where this mix was also recorded at has to be a firm favourite for us, considering we played for near enough 7 hrs across both rooms made for a very satisfying moment.

What have you got coming up?
Well as we all know, the whole industry has ground to a halt for now. All we can hope for is that everyone is safe & the rest will hopefully follow.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Big up’s to all those who we have crossed paths with along the way so far, all the feedback, support & love throughout  never goes unnoticed.

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
