Bigwax.io is not an online record store like the others!
For many years, we have been supporting independent artists and labels in the development of their online store on the short circuit model, for better remuneration for their work.
With a team of enthusiasts, all professionals in the recorded music sector, we operate at all levels: Consulting, Manufacturing, Distribution (WW), Logistics and Online Sales.
Synergy and common goal
Every day we put our experience as a distributor and e-merchant at the service of artists with the common objective of regularly offering exclusive and personalized editions (signed vinyls, numbered editions, merchandising, exclusive packs) for fans.
Coop: an ecosystem for independent creators
It is in a spirit of cooperation that independent artists and labels join Bigwax.io.
To highlight this proximity, our wish is to highlight all the independent artists and labels in cooperation with Bigwax.io with a "Coop" tag.
If this tag also appears on an article, it means that we are the only intermediary between them and you. By adding Coop products to your cart, you help pay them fairer compensation and help them continue to develop their artistic projects over time.
Thanks to you

Tout au long des 8 morceaux qui composent l’album, les guitares psychédéliques et textes aériens s’entremêlent au blues des lignes de basses et des notes de Rhodes, faisant la part belle aux séquences instrumentales sur chacune des chansons.
Influencé par le rock des années 60-70, les titres de Digital Introversion évoquent tour à tour des groupes comme Crosby, Stills & Nash, les Pink Floyd ou encore des musiciens plus contemporains comme Khruangbin ou Air. Écrit et composé entre 2018 et 2019 dans son home studio, chaque instrument est joué et arrangé par Maruani, à l’exception des batteries sur quelques titres dont il a confié l’enregistrement à des amis et membres de sa famille. Ne cherchez pas de samples ici car toute la musique d’Aboukir est originale, démontrant la maturité artistique et le talent d’un producteur expérimenté et d’un audiophile passionné qui collectionne les vinyles depuis son plus jeune âge.
Digital Introversion is the first studio album of Aboukir, the new project of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ralph Maruani, also known as Flabaire for his electronic music pieces.
Throughout the 8 tracks of the LP, psychedelic guitars and dreamy vocals lie down on bluesy bass lines and subtle rhodes keys, putting great emphasis on instrumental sequences in every song.
Inspired by the sound of the 60s and 70s rock, the album conjures references to bands like Crosby, Stills & Nash, prog-rock pioneers Pink Floyd and more modern musicians such as Khruanghbin or Air. Recorded in 2018 and 2019 in his home studio, every instrument is played and arranged by Maruani himself except for the drums, performed by friends and family on several tracks. No samples here, just pure talent from an experienced producer and a lifelong vinyl collector.
