Skream remixes Trance Wax

UK heavyweight Skream provides a hard-hitting rework of Trance Wax’s ‘El Nido’


Oliver Jones, aka Skream, has been at the leading edge of UK dance music for fifteen years. An early dubstep pioneer, Skream’s musical journey has seen him collaborate with the likes of La Roux, Rudimental, Katy B and many more.

Skream has also seen success as part of supergroup Magnetic Man, alongside fellow dubstep artists Benga and Artwork. His music has featured in British TV series Skins, and he has produced several Essential Mixes for BBC Radio 1.

Few artists can completely change their sound and maintain momentum, but Skream has managed to do exactly that. He moved away from dubstep in the early 2010’s, incorporating house, dub and techno influences into his sound and landing releases on Defected Records, Asylum Records, Crosstown Rebels and more.

Trance Wax is an alias of Belfast-born producer Garry McCartney, also known as Ejeca. Celebrating the music he fell in love with as a teenager, his Trance Wax project began as an anonymous series of vinyl-only bootlegs back in 2015. Garry’s lovingly crafted edits of classics from Yves Deyurter, BT and Mauro Picotto became peak-time anthems for Bicep, Nina Kraviz, Denis Sulta, The Blessed Madonna and Job Jobse to name a few. A BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix followed soon after.

Two Trance Wax edits of Above & Beyond’s much-loved OceanLab project were released on Anjunabeats in 2019, with the debut Trance Wax album following in November 2020. Garry joined Above & Beyond at their Group Therapy 450 milestone show in September 2021.

Trance Wax ‘El Nido’ (Skream Remix) is out now on Anjunabeats.
