Matt Edwards y Joel Martin, members of Quiet Village, have been exploring other music avenues under their Maxxi & Zeus moniker since their acclaimed 2008 debut album Silent Movie, under !K7 label. Now they are back with Too High to Move: Remixed with Love by Maxxi & Zeus, a compilation available from June 25th of their most inspiring and sought after remixes to date, this time through Pyramid Of Mars, the experimental sublabel of Rekids.
Too High to Move is named after a track on Silent Movie and collects selected remixes by the duo and stitches them together as a continuous mix. Among the artists remixed by the duo and included on the compilation are Francois K, Toby Tobias and Black Devil Disco Club.
A surprising work that reminds us DJ Shadow, Lindstrom and Easy Rider soundtracks, adding with dipping meaty chunks of psychedelic rock and disco into a bubbling fondue of easy-listening jazz, ’70s library records and even seashore soundscapes.
