The Wax Wreckaz are a DJ-/production-outfit hailing from Austria, Innsbruck to be exact. A small city surrounded by mountains, green meadows filled with cows in summer and loads of snow and thousands of ski-tourists in winter. The crew consists of Busy Fingaz, Juwee, Fu and Sensay.
Four music lovers that although growing up with different social backgrounds -- ranging from punk rock-loving-skateboard-kid to being a conductor's offspring with classical music education -- finally met in the year 1999 in a graphic design school and the rest is history.
This time they hooked up with European dancehall-ruler Million Stylez and laced another bass heavy Reggae-Electronica hybrid. Million Stylez laid down an anthem for all the weed lovers worldwide, switching from toasting to singing and back, with his trademark style and voice all over the place. Playing with different genres is natural to the Wax Wreckaz -- whether it's in their DJ-Sets or productions. And so it's obvious that the result has a unique sound to it, including influences from different genres like house, bass, hip-hop and of course dancehall and reggae.
Kenshin Iryo better known by his stage name Million Stylez, is a Swedish dancehall artist.
Kenshin Iryo was born on June 1, 1981 in Stockholm, Sweden. He grew up in the Stockholm suburb of Sollentuna, and has been living there for 26 years. He is half Japanese and half French and grew up mainly with immigrants from around the world, which contributed to his respect for other cultures.
Million Stylez released his debut album From A Far (2007) on KBC Music and includes musical genres ranging from reggae, dancehall and hip hop to some R&B influenced songs. Most of the tunes contain conscious lyrics about his gratitude to God, life struggles, celebration, love and hate, war and peace and other issues.
Stylez has worked with many musical acts including Smif N Wessun, Mr. Vegas, Bunji Garlin, Lukie D, Loogaman, Alozade, J-Ro, Gentleman, Promoe and Ken Ring. He has also been the opening act for artists like Sean Paul, Beenie Man, Elephant Man, Ne-Yo, Fabolous, Nina Sky, Ryan Leslie, Fatman Scoop, Wayne Wonder, Mr. Vegas, T.O.K., Anthony B, Ward 21, Alozade, Zumjay, among others. He has recorded dubplates for big soundsystems and selectors like David Rodigan (the U.K.'s biggest and most known selector), Mighty Crown, Massive B, Sentinel, Robbo Ranx and Silver Star.
Stylez has toured internationally to promote his most recent album Everyday with musical guests including Busy Signal, Gentleman, and Don Carlos.
