Acay "Sax On E.P."
Acay is a music producer with a very special outlook on classic tech-house: on his brand new release, he set out to incorporate timeless beat patterns with great plucky synth bass tones, emotional spoken words vocal samples and as the title of the EP will imply, great saxophone lead tones. On “Arisen”, the song builds up through a pattern of beats and bass melodies that constitute the backbone of the song, upon which great synth washes and saxophone melodies ring out, along with cool vocal samples. “Sax On”, the title track, features some killer high-hat and clap tones, lifting the beat and making the song run. The saxophone leads seamlessly interact with the beautiful keys and lush, pumping atmospheric tones in the background. The EP will be out soon on 99 Waves. Find out more and listen!

Biography 99 Waves Records
The music industry is changing. The traditional outlets of music discovery, distribution and promotion have been thrown out the window in the wake of constant technological innovation. Traditional record labels and music retailers have found that their business models are no longer valid in today’s world of iTunes, streaming radio, blogs, etc.
With the advent of new technology, especially in the realm of Digital Audio Workstation and DJ software, it is increasingly easy for just about anyone with an idea to compose and produce a song or a remix. To that end, the market has been flooded with new content; some of which is good and some of which is not so good.
From day one, the focus of 99 WAVES has been on producing excellent music and putting on incredible, unforgettable events. While distribution and promotion methods will certainly change throughout time, the desire and need for quality music and events is timeless.
The company’s emphasis is to promote the success of its artists. 99 WAVES is always looking out for its artists’ best interests and believes in fair deals that create win/win situations for everyone involved. This is done by breaking away from old industry standards and by innovating new best practices.
Inspired by the dance music scene in Europe, as well as US-based labels and promotion companies, the imprint was started in 2013 on the cusp of the electronic dance music revolution in Italy & Worldwide.
