At Wax Poetics, we put music in context. Closing the noticeable gap in music journalism between coverage of contemporary artists and celebration of classic trailblazers, we provide extensive commentary on the dynamic relationship between past and present to educate today’s ears about the origins of their favorite music. What we started in December 2001 as a quarterly magazine, both classic and fresh, has grown into a diversified music media resource for music aficionados and general listeners alike. From our signature approach to print media to our giant steps into new media and the recording industry, we strive to revolutionize the way we educate ourselves about music.
Wax Poetics magazine makes the perfect stepping-stone for the endless possibilities of Wax Poetics media outlets. The strength of our name relies on a passion for quality music and the history that contextualizes it.
In this issue:
Wax Poetics presents the third issue since its 2021 relaunch with another heavyweight 148-page journal packed full of timeless music stories, record spreads, archival photography, and original artwork.
The front is graced with Patrice Rushen, an accomplished jazz keyboardist who found her singing voice and embraced her love of R&B, becoming a bona fide star with the release of 1982’s Straight from the Heart, an album that featured the smash hit “Forget Me Nots.”
Our other cover story dives into the history of Detroit techno, from the primordial electronics of Juan Atkins and the sonic upheaval of “Mad” Mike Banks’s Underground Resistance to Waajeed (featured on the back cover), whose Underground Music Academy aims to help the next generation of Detroit artists.
