Listen: Women On Wax’s Queendom Vol. 1


Detroit’s DJ Minx has relaunched Women On Wax Recordings with Queendom Vol.1. The compilation of dance tracks from LGBTQ+ artists was released in June to recognize Pride month. The six-song track listing has music from Minx, DJ Cent, Shaun J. Wright, Nita Aviance, Sydney Blu and Debbie Graham. House and techno are equally present whether it’s DJ Cent’s tribute to Detroit’s late house king Ken Collier or Minx’s racy instrumental “Let It Ride.” The music does its job of reintroducing the label’s duty to release electronic music rooted in Detroit’s rhythms. Minx started Women On Wax as a collective of DJs and artists in 1996 and the label followed in 2001. Last year Seth Troxler’s remixes of “A Walk In The Park” were released by Factory 93 Records. In May Minx’s The Throne EP came out on Higher Ground. Queendom Vol. 1 is available on all streaming platforms.
