Since 2022 kicked off, Bump 'n Grind Wax has been active playing the music we love, building up the record store at Analog Market, and promoting our growing brand over the past couple months. Much of our efforts have been in anticipation for the arrival of our fifth 7" release from Jacques Renault. BNG-005 is a labor of love and patience, one subject to the numerous delays impacting the global vinyl record industry. We are happy to finally announce that our black wax shipment of BNG-005 has arrived stateside!

In January, the Bump ‘n Grind Wax team, David and Brady, embarked on a remarkable musical quest to the “Land of Wood and Water”, the tropical island of Jamaica, where grooves grow plenty! In just a handful of days, David and Brady dove straight into the birthplace of reggae music, connecting with a few of today’s torchbearers keeping the vinyl culture alive. This week’s Liner Notes documents this quick, but impactful, trip for B ‘n G Wax, one that left profound impressions on the importance of music and art as a vessel to navigate the uncertainties and calamities of everyday life.
