Once again WAX MEKANIX provocatively invites its audience to reflect. This time, for themselves. For years, intelligence professionals around the world have been warning us about the dangers of the digital age. Unregulated social media, troll farms, identity theft, disinformation, fake news! Wax asks simple questions and defiantly reminds anyone who might listen to him that we need to watch the signs around us, because they give us the key to understanding what is going on.
WAX MEKANIX's sound attack is performed following his main musical influences, which date back to the dawn of rock 'n roll. Bo Diddley, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Ottmar Liebert, right up to the cool 21st century funky groove merchants Crobot.
