‘When creating an exclusive new track for his DJ-Kicks mix, Maceo Plex decided to deviate slightly from his comfort zone. “I’m kind of known for a couple of big disco records and some really deep bassline house tracks,” he says. “This track is much darker, but still pretty sexy and soulful. The whole thing is dark and futuristic.” Maceo’s new track “Galactic Cinema” anchors his mix, which is available April 30th on !K7.
A two track EP featuring both new Maceo Plex tracks from DJ-Kicks (“Galactic Cinema” and “Mind On Fire”) will be available on Beatport on April 15th.’

We’ll see how long this stays up. “Stimulation” is a new track from Maceo Plex’s new EP ‘Space Junk.’
Never failing to deliver, theSpace Junk EP is another slice of dance floor magic, Maceo Plex style. “Stimulation takes a deeper and harder turn for the late night ravers. Still noticeably a Maceo track, it adopts a big room driving sound with a thumping bass followed with intricate pacey percussions. Siren haunts fall into the vortex of sonic sounds, echoing and all encompassing for that dance floor effect, with warm synths flowing through the beautiful yet eerie layers.”

From RA: ‘You can’t accuse Maceo Plex on taking the easy route on this sinuous deep house shakedown. “Love Somebody Else” is an all-new version of an unreleased Jon Dasilva remix of a Colourblind cover of a Jones Girls’ disco staple. Got your head round that one? Former Haçienda ressie Dasilva was hauled back into the studio by Eric Estornel to do it all again from scratch, and even got ’90s house stalwart Joi Cardwell to re-record her vocals as well. The result is a charged, disco-laced house anthem with a bass keys arrangement that stomps across the track like a buffalo stampede. It doesn’t pretend to be dripping with cool, but if its MO is to be a laser-targeted retro house dance floor bomb then it hits the bulls-eye.’

Maetrik aka Maceo Plex’s new EP is some serious shit. ‘A subtle shift in style for Ellum Audio, the undisputed modern master of seductive, brooding basslines and compulsive killer tunes imparts his tougher credentials without forgoing the sensual touch.
Over a decade after the first Maetrik release on Immigrant Records back in 2000, its safe to say that Eric Estornel aka Maceo Plex has the industry at his feet. A powerful force in electronic music with a deeply distinctive sound, Erics mega following is in the grip of his devastatingly addictive and beautifully engineered dancefloor assaults. A first for Ellum Audio, Maetriks ‘Unleash The Beast EP’ may well take this remarkable artist to even headier heights.’
This may be the sexiest track of the year. Maceo Plex had a huge 2011, and there’s no sign of slowing down in 2012. He just released two tracks on beatport that are off the charts amazing. My favorite, is “Sex Appeal.” This is simply a sexy, smooth, and funky deep house tune that would send me in a frenzy on the dance floor. This is the kinda track, in my world, that inspires new dance moves. Just pure ecstatic and impulsive d floor creation. Enjoy this clip off of soundcloud.

Nothing brand spanking new here, but I just love Maceo Plex. I saw that he’s playing U Street Music Hall back in my hometown, DC and wanted to spread some love. Go check out his Facebook page and like it to get his updates. Get digital my friends.
