Rawax Launches Paul Johnson Reissue Series, Preview the First Release
- Words: Jay Donaldson
Chiwax Classic Edition, a subsidiary of the Germany-based Rawax imprint, is preparing to to reissue a series of releases by veteran Chicago DJ/producer Paul Johnson. In the early '90s, Johnson's efforts saw outings on legendary outlets such as Dance Mania, Defected, and Trax, and he's remixed the likes of Green Velvet (a.k.a. Cajmere), Ron Trent, and Steve Poindexter. With the forthcoming inaugural volume of Traxx Series, which remasters five original tracks from his 1995 Stop Trippin' 12" for Relief (and includes one unreleased bonus cut), Johnson joins the ranks of label affiliates such as K-Alexi, Boo Williams, and Gemini. Traxx Series Volume 1 is due out on August 29 and can be previewed below, along with a full tracklist.
