Vaxx joins the Spotlight Mix Series
When you think about Tech House artists, Canada isn’t usually one of the first places you would pinpoint. However, Toronto-based DJ/Producer Vaxx is setting the bar high for North American talent. What started as a keen appreciation for electronic music has blossomed into becoming one of the continent’s fastest rising talents, attracting the attention of some of the biggest labels in today’s House Music world.
Vaxx’s sonic signature may be misleading to some, given his locale, as he pumps a primarily European sound in the form of tribal-influenced, rolling Tech House with thunderous basslines and a keen emphasis on percussive creativity. Citing inspiration from the likes of Max Chapman, Iglesias, Latmun, Proudly People, Hector Couto and others, Vaxx has found his ever-growing catalogue of releases attaching themselves to imprints like Toolroom, Low:Res, Roush, Glasgow Underground, Under No Illusion, New Violence, Country Club Disco, Distance Music, Cocoa and more.
Vaxx’s is a regular feature in Toronto’s blossoming nightlife scene, Vaxx is a frequent attraction at the likes of Coda and One Loft. He has also had the privilege of gracing club spaces across the pond, with the most notable being Hot Mess in Belgrade, Serbia.
One of the founding members of increasingly-popular Tech House imprint ’Wasted Music’, Vaxx is an artist with a remarkable amount of opportunity in the pipeline. With major figures frequently advocating his productions, along with a whole host of high-profile releases in the pipeline, the Canadian trailblazer is going from strength to strength as he vows to become a household name in the not too distant future.
