Maceo Plex: New DJ-Kicks mix series in! K7 Records + video interview

House producer and DJ Maceo Plex joins the ranks of the DJ Kicks club with his first official mix for the prestige series. The set is an explosive propulsion of syrupy grooves that aims to put a futuristic spin on the retro 90s house vibe that a lot of DJs are reverting back to these days.

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.

After many years of prolific works on such labels as Treibstoff, Dumb Unit, Cocoon, Audiomatique, Modern Love or Mothership, Maceo aka Maetrik travelled the world playing in some of the best clubs such as Rex, Cocoon, Fabric or Womb. Since 2010 Maceo has begun to strip back some of his robotic body armor known as Maetrik in order to expose a more musical and groove based side the world has not seen yet.

And now we have available his new DJ-Kicks Mix Series through !K7 Records. The 18 track mix, consisting of unreleased edits, remixes, and original tracks, is one of Maceo’s most comprehensive outings to date. Over the span of the album, he covers a wide set of generes, from chill out, to electronica, techno, and of course, his own brand of deep house.

Along with the release of the album Maceo prepared a video interview where he explains better than anyone the reasons and the expected outcome of this new work.
