Unleash The Beast

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.’

I’m loving this tune from Maceo Plex that I heard on a recent friend’s mix. From Resident Advisor: “Located deep within the circuitry of a mechanical alien host known as Maetrik you will find a complex web of synaptic dispersements resembling what could be called a soul. And this soul which drives it’s host and manipulates it’s every move is finally beginning to emerge. Its name is Maceo Plex. The emergence of such an entity has been the result of a need for feeling, a need for interplanetary funk. We as humans consider this need a feeling, a feeling rooted in emotion, and emotion being the very basis of humanity.

Maceo Plex is on a quest to fullfil his need to inject feeling and funk into the world, and he’s already proving to be quite productive. With deep and funky works of audible engineering for the label Crosstown Rebels in the form of a full length album titled “Life Index”, a night with Maceo Plex will be one of galactic proportions.”
