We advocate diversity and depth in music; bringing people together through a growing stable of artists, selectors and like-minded souls worldwide; gathering, conversing, exchanging and creating, using music as the medium.
Endorsed by tastemakers like Gilles Peterson, Lefto, jamz supernova, king Britt and many more numerous tastemakers and platforms worldwide, the Singapore-based label is widely respected for its attention to diversity and detail.
“Darker Than Wax is the south-east asian locomotive of a long train that consists of different genres of music; Giving the community an alternative, something different in the region. DTW is an essential ambassador in that region, sending their soldiers to different parts, and a satellite for our culture.” - Lefto
Though essentially a music label, we have developed over the past five years into a multi faceted entity. Starting out as just music purveyors and artists initially, to gaining new strengths and skills crucial in today’s dynamic scene, such as design, communications, marketing, event organization, A&R, merchandising, promotions, and of course, live performance. All aspects are handled in house with a tight team based both in Singapore as well as New York.
