‘Wax Future’s name mirrors their sound. Vinyl records are colloquially called “wax”, and in the studio the duo fill their music with their own organic instrumental samples. The duo’s rendition of the blues, jazz, rock or funk is then throttled into the future with melodic synthesizer work and crisp, hard-hitting drum tracks. Their production style is progressive while also harkening back to original experiments into electronic production by conventional musicians i.e. Pink Floyd. Wax Future makes live electronic music with tasteful improvisation and deep roots in hip-hop and soul.’

The band is made up of Connor Hansell (synths & production), Keith Wadsworth (lead guitar & synthesizer), and Gralin Hughes (live digital art). They honed their live performances through slots at F.A.R.M fest alongside of Papadosio and Eoto, and several headlining and support slots in their hometown alongside heavy hitters MiTiS, Mat Zo, and Haywyre. They enjoy the daytime as well as late night where you may have recently caught them supporting Random Rab, and Tauk at Midsummer Night Dream. Their 2nd EP ‘Keep the Memories’ Drops 8.28 via Funkadelphia Recordings.


Im Rasp 5, I am an songwriter/emcee from New York City. This project is devoted to creating REAL Hip Hop. Patters, flow, poetry, and fresh bars. It is also my goal to move Hip Hop forward, using a wide spectrum of beats from boom-bap to electro-soul to glitch hop. Overall I aim to give you a piece of my perspective, and through that spread understanding and love. Thank you all for supporting my art!!!
