Swing Swing EP – Wax Poetic


Swing Swing is the single from Ilhan Ersahin’s newest incarnation of Wax Poetic on Copenhagen, the first part in a three-part series of records from the Nublu founder and bandleader. Copenhagen has a more singular approach than earlier Wax Poetic albums, with vocalist Marla Turner as the main focus of the record and a subdued Northern European energy creeping through the rocky, Garbage-esque tracks.

Swing Swing twelve appears in only remixed formats on the twelve inch in addition to a beefed up, surprisingly Detroit-like, organic techno version of ‘Beauty’ by Brazilian Girls. Mazza’s take on the title track is an almost self-remix, with Thor Madsen aka Mazza—one of the major contributors to Copenhagen—twisting it into a dark, bassy track that sneaks out of left field and into full-on head nod territory. Tyrrell’s remix is the hand-raiser of the lot, turning Marla Turner’s vocals into an anthem and building the track into the perfect blend of classic house and modern electro.
