Tom Wax - Wax Worx 2
Techno, House 'Wax Worx 2' is the new release from Tom Wax and is a mix of House beats and melodies with some sample clips thrown in here and there.

The entire album keeps a medium house feel from song to song, and doesn't really have any build up, climax points or breakdowns. The songs I reviewed didn't have any names to them and were simply numbered 1 through 13. The names wouldn't have mattered anyway, because there are no vocals to give the songs any distinction from one another. If you are a DJ looking for House music to play when blending from song to song, this album might be useful, but as an album that stands on its own, I felt this album had nothing to offer. I would label it as house music for elevators. I was not impressed with this album at all and found nothing unique in any of the songs. The beats ranged from soft house to very soft tribal. The only tracks that had any hint of interest were tracks 5 and 6, and that is only because they had more vocal samples than the rest.

I saw that Tom Wax has 12 previous albums and a good handful of albums with other artists or compilations. Seeing that he had that many albums, I was expecting much more than what I heard. Almost any music creator who uses loops to create music could have cranked out tracks like this very easily. Tom Wax may or may not be well known in the club circles, but for me, his music would send me to the bar to get another drink.

If you like elevator style House music, then you might like this album. If you are looking for House music to dance to, I would suggest looking elsewhere.
