Trance Wax, the nostalgia infused alias of Ejeca, releases new single ‘Calling For You’
Anjunabeats presents ‘Calling For You’, the next single from the debut album from Garry McCartney, aka Trance Wax. We’ve been covering the previous releases and we’re thrilled to share this next release!
Celebrating the formative sounds that Garry and his childhood friends – and sometimes collaborators – Bicep first fell in love with as Belfast teenagers. Trance Wax began as an anonymous series of vinyl-only bootlegs back in 2015.
Garry uses the deep love of trance across the dance community to tap into his full potential. For example, Garry’s lovingly crafted edits of classics from Yves Deyurter, BT, and Mauro Picotto became peak-time anthems for Bicep, Nina Kraviz, Denis Sulta, The Blessed Madonna, Job Jobse to name a few. Each vinyl run sold out in hours. In addition, copies on Discogs often sold for hundreds of pounds. Resident Advisor described the edits as “somewhere between Shed and Evian Christ”. BBC Radio 1 commissioned Trance Wax for a hallowed Essential Mix in mid-2018. The collective nostalgia for trance – a foundational force in emotional dance music – was well and truly awoken. It was time for Garry to show the world what he was made of.
Trance Wax and Anjunabeats
It was no surprise, then, that Garry found his way to London’s trance standard-bearer: Anjunabeats.
The connection began when Trance Wax edited two classics from the Anjunabeats vault, ‘Clear Blue Water’ and ‘Satellite. Both of these tracks were from Above & Beyond’s much-loved OceanLab project. Trance Wax was invited to support Above & Beyond at two sold-out shows at London’s Printworks. At this show, his distinctive breakbeat-nodding take on classic trance struck a chord with the Anjuna fanbase and the Anjunabeats label team! As the relationship grew, Garry’s creative urge to explore the Trance Wax influences more fully was nurtured. An album deal was inked.
The result is a stirring, self-titled LP debut from Trance Wax featuring 14 original compositions. The album is a celebration of communal euphoria and a love-letter to the golden age of trance – arguably European dance music’s most fertile period – through the eyes of a modern production star at the top of his game.
Trance Wax’s self-titled album is out November 6 on Anjunabeats. Pre-order now via the Anjuna Music Store.
