A boundary-crossing selection of reconfigurations from Max’s recent works... Rafaël Frost packs punch-a-plenty on the mix of ‘So Caught Up’, while Max himself puts a celestial twist on the Gai Barone co-op ‘Dying To Survive’. ‘FYC 2013’ with Corti Organ is tons of rave-ily riffed fun, but just out in front is ReOrder’s jet-propelled redux of his and Maarten de Jong’s ‘Lekker’.
This one’s a biggie. A low, intense bass sits below the track like a strong-but-mellow shot of expresso, giving the track a smooth and brooding kick of energy. The layers of vocal create an angelic chorale, lifting the whole track to a state of new style liquid. A graceful balance of dark and light decorate the classic Amen, bringing the track into the masterpiece area. The entire EP is nothing short of stunning.
Label boss Sync 24 kick-starts a new collaborative project by teaming up with The Exaltics. ‘Ten Years in Ten Days’ is all moody bass and subsonic bleeps, while ‘Vacuum’ is even more powerful thanks to its pummelling low-end. The Exaltics then takes over and lends ‘Ten Years’ a deeper, more melodic feeling, while the German producer’s ‘Bad Trip’ remix of ‘Vacuum’ sees dark acidic lines sprayed over murky, robotic vocals
With a title like this you know what to expect from the off, and this certainly doesn't disappoint, with one of the most twisted vocals I’ve heard in a long time, overlaid with a spooky piano in the breakdown, which builds up with a sinister chord melody and drops with serious power and screechy distorted sounds. Keeping things very raw with bags of energy for those peak-time moments.
