Digging and exploring analog stories in a digital format. The next chapter of music journalism.
Wax Poetics has been a household name amongst world-music enthusiasts since its launch in 2000. Well known for their in-depth journalism, they approached Wonderland to develop an online platform for their readers. Featuring 400+ articles, alongside mixes, albums and a collection of fresh pieces, the new digital Wax Poetics brings that gritty analog world to life, both visually and from an experience perspective: a chaptering system, an analog page turn, or Re:Discovery, a unique experience to dig through old, unknown, and rare albums. With a very editorial masthead feel and wide-set type headlines, the platform aims to vitalise their readership and bring something unique to the world music community.
