In today’s music scene, various artists like BICEP, Tiësto, and Calvin Harris incorporate trance elements into their sets. Trance Wax, led by Irish producer Garry McCartney, has been instrumental in revitalizing the genre. Known for seamlessly adapting classic trance tracks for modern dancefloors, Trance Wax initially started as vinyl-only bootlegs and gained recognition on labels like Ajunabeats and Flashover Recordings.
Trance Wax is a true master of his craft. It was almost inevitable that growing up with a love for trance would eventually result in Garry McCartney releasing his own interpretations of the sound. From Trance Wax’s origins in 2016 as an outlet for the Belfast-based artist’s remixes of the genre, the alias of Ejeca is firmly cemented as a key player in the contemporary trance landscape.
He now shifts into a fresh artistic chapter, having shared the previous self-titled album via Anjunabeats amidst a period where dancefloors were merely a figment of the imagination.
Sophomore album ‘Open Up The Night’ via independent dance label Armada Music is a club-oriented 16-track heater, championed by front runners including The xx’s Romy, Keinemusik and KI/KI. The album promises an exciting musical journey.
Get a taste of what’s to come with his rework of Corona’s ‘Rhythm Of The Night,’ a teaser from the upcoming album. Not satisfied with playing the eagerly-awaited tracks (alongside his stellar discography) in a DJ set, though, Trance Wax’s evolution into performing live – entirely solo, accompanied by Dan Tombs’ visuals – is a move that captures his bold, self-directed artistry.
He is unafraid to be pioneering within the scene to distinguish himself, exemplified through his live setup, although the pride he feels witnessing the success and acclamation of music he has shared for years is immense. This artistic drive of Trance Wax – unapologetically sharing the genre he loves in innovative ways – directly correlates to the recognition garnered since the birth of the project some years ago.
A Radio 1 Essential Mix in the alias’ early days set the precedent for the forthcoming success of the already-respected artist, landing during a period where the genre was almost taboo to audibly enjoy. Add a Boiler Room in Montreal, a helping of self-titled US-based radio shows with Insomniac and a string of sold-out white label vinyl to the mix – plus collaborations with icons of the trance genre including FerryCorsten and Moya Brennan, and remixes for key players including Solomun and Agents Of Time – and you can understand the scale of appreciation for Trance Wax.
