Darker Than Wax presents :
XL Middleton (LA, MoFunk Records)
Modern funk/G-funk artist/producer/DJ from Pasadena, XL Middleton operates his own label, MoFunk Records, dedicated to furthering the modern funk sound, as well as a subsidiary label, Cavi Sounds, a home for any music XL seeks to put out that may not fall strictly within the modern funk canon, including hip hop, g-funk, and soul. He has also released music in conjunction with noteworthy labels such as Bastard Jazz, Omega Supreme, and Voltaire, effectively bridging the gap between fans of modern funk/80's boogie and 90's g-funk, both of which have been tremendously influential to the XL Middleton sound.
Marco Weibel (NY, Darker Than Wax)
Brought up on a soul diet, DJ / radio-host Marco, dabbles in things deep, funky, diverse and raw.
