When Dax J released his sophomore album ‘Offending Public Morality’ at the cusp of 2018, it was less a political statement and more one of artistic integrity. Certainly, it emphasised the fact that few artists are more solely-focused on the music. Pushing a rick-rollicking, high-tempo 130+ bpm brand of techno not for the faint of heart, Dax J swims against the tide of trend. At a time when the commercial end of dance music is pursuing a more downtempo path, the Monnom Black boss is the antidote to homogenisation.
