Record clubs were a big thing in a different era of music – where you would pay a small fee and sign up to get music every month. Now a new service, Trax & Wax, is planning on bringing the record club concept into the modern era, focusing on dance music releases.

Trax & Wax: Subscription To Dance Music Vinyl
Internet-based subscription services have seen a big surge in the last two years, with services like LootCrate (for gamers/geeks), Graze (for snacks), and BarkBox (for dogs and their owners) building companies around the concept. So of course it makes sense that someone would invent one that’s for dance music, right?
Building off of the continued resurgence of vinyl lovers in the DJ world, Trax & Wax is set to launch this year – and the concept is simple:
The founder of Trax & Wax shared a bit of insight into the expected sense of surprise that they hope to provide in this Thump article:
“This is a surprise box, and we believe a part of the appeal is that you don’t always get exactly what you expect, which in turn enables you to discover new acts and music styles, so you need to keep your mind open.”
Each month, you get four records in a certain genre collection – some examples include:
- Trax & Wax Box: Contemporary House and Techno music
- New School Box: A selection of new school tech and deep house music
- Disco Box: Disco, Nu-disco, and edits
- Old School Box: That classic sound of Chicago and New York
The company is partnering with distributors and labels in the dance music world, including Rush Hour, Clone, and Word & Sound – here’s some examples tracks of what you might expect to get from the service:
