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.

Wallpaper For The Soul Expanded
AlternativeAlternative, Indie RockModern Groove
Human Sounds are proud to be re-releasing Tahiti 80’s 2002 classic album Wallpaper for the Soul expanded with 8 bonus tracks. It comes on Marbled Vinyls and Printed Inner Sleeves.
« This is the pop album of 2003 which everyone else will have to beat »
— Uncut: 5 Stars
« Vive le pop »
— Mojo Magazine: 4 Stars
« An album for hot afternoons and pensive showery days, the perfect July-September soundtrack »
— The Guardian: 4 Stars
« A gorgeous, multifaceted jewel of acid-washed guitars, glittery horn flourishes, and frayed electronic texture »
After the worldwide success of their first album Puzzle (1999), which sold over 200,000 copies and went gold in Japan, Xavier Boyer (vocals, guitars), Pedro Resende (bass), Médéric Gontier (guitars) & Sylvain Marchand (drums) reunited with producer Andy Chase to record the follow-up, Wallpaper for the Soul, in New York City. Starting in November 2001 at Stratosphere Sound, the prolific sessions gave birth to twenty tracks, twelve of which appeared on the original tracklist. The eight outtakes were compiled on the mini albums A Piece of Sunshine (2003) & Extra Pieces of Sunshine (2004). This new vinyl edition will be the first time all these songs appear together.
Many musical fashions and flavors of the month have come and gone, but twenty years after its release, WFTS still sounds fresh and relevant. And always forward-looking, Tahiti 80 is currently wrapping up the recording of their eighth album, to be released in early 2022.
Human Sounds réédite le second album culte de Tahiti 80, Wallpaper for the Soul. Initialement paru en 2002, la nouvelle édition est enrichie de 8 titres bonus et sort en vinyle marbrés et contient des sous pochettes imprimées.

Après le succès international de leur premier album Puzzle (1999), vendu à plus de 200 000 exemplaires et disque d’or au Japon, Xavier Boyer (chant, guitares), Pedro Resende (basse), Médéric Gontier (guitares) et Sylvain Marchand (batterie) se sont à nouveau associés au producteur Andy Chase pour enregistrer son successeur, Wallpaper for the Soul, à New York.
Les modes et tendances continuent d’apparaître et de disparaître, mais vingt ans après son enregistrement, WFTS sonne toujours frais et pertinent. Et Tahiti 80 continue encore d'écrire son histoire, à sa guise, avec un huitième album prévu pour début 2022.
