Wax Poetics Records


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.
Torres resigned from Wax Poetics in February 2016 and the record label has been inactive since 2018.
Wax Poetics was reborn as a Netherlands-based subscription-only publication in 2021 first with two "special collectors editions" then a second volume. There is no connection between Wax Poetics Records and the new owners of the magazine.
