Profile:

Label founded in 2007 by Andre Torres and Brian DiGenti.
The label manager between 2007 and 2010 was Amir Abdullah.
Wax Poetics was founded in Brooklyn in 2001 as a quarterly print publication dedicated to vintage and contemporary jazz, funk, soul, disco, Latin, hip-hop, reggae, blues, and R&B; 66 issues were published between 2001 and 2016. The magazine expanded its operations in this time to include apparel sales, a record label, and a book publishing imprint.
