Maxxi Soundsystem – Medicine EP feat. Name One
The “Medicine“ EP represents Maxxi Soundsystem’s full-fledged Culprit debut, after providing a standout remix of Burnski & M A N I K’s “YJG” last year. The EP is Maxxi’s re-union with his frequent vocal collaborator Name One – their massive “Regrets I Have No Use For” was surely one of the songs of 2012 for the venerable Hypercolour label. Coincidentally, this is a second year running that Culprit begin their year with a record featuring Name One – his work for Adriatique’s “Midnight Walking” got 2014 off to a flying start for the LA imprint.
“This EP represents the pick of the tracks I did working with Name One, they are songs but totally focused on the dancefloor – initially I thought of these as 3 singles but we did so many tracks together in a relatively short space of time it seemed only right to introduce them to the world on the same record. Working with Jack (Name One) is always a pleasure – his lyrics and ideas are in my opinion a huge level above what you find in most dance music”. Maxxi Soundsystem
“Medicine” EP is a confident statement of intent from the Brighton-based producer, with three single-ready songs combined on one strong release. The hook-laden title track, the stark groove of “Lone Raver” and the deeply melodic “Fading Thought” all combine Maxxi’s dynamic composition and crisp production values with Name One’s memorable lyrics that go beyond the typical dance music fodder. Maxxi Soundsystem opens Culprit’s 2015 with a bang and is certain to be one of the label’s leading artists for some time to come. Out on February 2nd 2015.
