Wax Poetics Europe / 1
Special Collector's Edition
Wax Poetics magazine returns to Europe, the magazine has relaunched in Europe this year starting with a special collector’s edition.
The American music magazine started in 2001, focused on jazz, funk, soul, latin, hip-hop, reggae and more – through a crate diggers’ lens.
It began when founder Andre Torres was living in New York City and conducting early research for a documentary on record collectors. He soon realised there were no publications devoted to the culture of beat-digging, scrapped the documentary, and decided to start his own quarterly magazine.
After a brief hiatus from the shelves, the magazine is returning in its original format. The latest issue is a special collectors edition focused on jazz, featuring archival articles, alongside fresh features.
Two new issues are planned for 2020 alongside a series of collaborations.
