Axel Wayn cites as main artistic influences such artists as Miles Davis, Jerry Mulligan, Bach, and Carl Cox. If this list seems counter-intuitive, it is because Wayn has himself taken a long and interesting journey to reach his current place in the modern electronic music scene.
Italian-born Axel Wayn's introduction to music began with his parents, who sang in a choir. A famous musicologist inspired him to begin studying, and he began with classical music, attending conservatory. After years of private tutoring with renowned teachers, Wayn found himself performing for the Pope in Vatican City (among a great many other places).
Classical led him to study jazz, which gave him a soloist's chops and trained him in experimental music. Having been invited to collaborate with some DJs and digital music composers as a soloist, Axel Wayn finally came to love house, trance, and EDM, the style of music showcased in his new track, “Step by Step.”
There are similarities, of course, and Wayn is quick to point out that his past training often comes in handy.
“Every track in the DJ's set or at concerts is rearranged and also uses jazz techniques for improvisation,”
Speaking of the themes of the single he created with singer Anthya, who penned the lyrics, Wayn writes, “I prefer don’t speak about a specific message, because I think the listeners have to be free to feel their own emotions, or perhaps more messages that they are able to sense by listening to the song.”
“Step by Step (feat. Anthya)” is available online worldwide.
