NEW TIMES: 5 YEARS OF DARKER THAN WAX
Despite 5 years of constant growth, our roots are firmly stemmed in music, and gradually and independently branching out into design, lifestyle, and events - We Move is a fairly nascent concept that grew into a firm belief. Like the G-SHOCK, which was incepted in 1983, DTW has gone through an evolution, while withstanding the test of time and staying relevant in significant subcultures.
DTW X G-Shock Media Preview (Invite Only): 5:30PM to 8PM
DTW 5 Year Anniversary Party (Open to Public): 8PM to late
Celebrate the launch of the limited DTW X G-Shock watch and our 5 year anniversary with an all-star Darker Than Wax lineup:

1st May - Labour day!
We link up with the DO HITS crew in Beijing, and this should be heavy bass affair. ZHI 16 has been one of our favourite producers to have emerged out of the scene lately, and joining him on support roles are Dokedo and Jason Hou.
We hit Shanghai and Beijing this coming Labour weekend, and first up, Shelter on the 29th of April. The trio of Troy Samuela, Funk Bast*rd and William J will be flying the flag high.
More details on Beijing very soon.

While we strive to be known as purveyors of cutting edge music, the Darker Than Wax ethos was built upon a devotion to decades of soulful music from around the world. Redux is a showcase of the roots sound of Darker Than Wax, including foundational classics, obscure b-sides, and modern tracks channeling the soul of previous eras.
