Oliver Jones, aka Skream, has possibly been at the leading edge of UK dance music for 15 years. An early dubstep player, his musical journey has seen him collaborate with the likes of La Roux, Katy B, Alan Fitzpatrick, and Dennis Ferrer. His versatility can be seen in his recent releases, ranging from the track ‘Space Ghetto’ to the emotion of ‘So Sorry’. Now, his remix of Trance Wax’s ‘El Nido’ is his first release on Anjunabeats.
Trance Wax is an alias of Belfast-born producer Garry McCartney, also known as Ejeca. Celebrating the music he fell in love with as a teenager, this project began as an anonymous series of vinyl-only bootlegs back in 2015. His edits of tracks from Yves Deyurter, BT and Mauro Picotto apparently became peak-time anthems for Bicep, Nina Kraviz, Denis Sulta, The Blessed Madonna and Job Jobse to name a few. A BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix followed soon after.
Two Trance Wax edits of Above & Beyond’s OceanLab project were released on Anjunabeats in 2019, with the debut Trance Wax album following in November 2020. Garry joined Above & Beyond at their Group Therapy 450 milestone show in September 2021.
Trance Wax ‘El Nido’ (Skream Remix) is out now on Anjunabeats.
