We are just all over the map this week, which is completely fine. What makes music stand out is the many different and evolving styles that the creatives can manipulate to their liking. Anyway, today we are pressing play on “Up & Down”, the latest EP from MiR friends Maximals. These Protocol veterans have been quite busy since we last caught up with them last, producing new tracks and even earning praise from Protocol label boss Nicky Romero! MAXIMALS created an impressive performance at Protocol’s 2017 showcase that Romero just had to casually mention that they will be one of the top artists to watch in 2018.
Following up their previous release with Sam Void (Pressure) at the end of 2018, Maximals have decided to release the new “Up & Down” EP to showcase two rather different sides of their style. On one hand, the leading track “Up” puts more emphasis on gritty synth work and derives heavily from the duo’s electro influences. On the flip side, we have “Down”, which leans more to the bouncier and groovier side of their production. Drafting up-and-comer Boothed to assist in the project, the “Up & Down” EP is a fantastic example of Maximals lasting beat-making that has made them the Protocol veterans we know today. Be ready to flood the dancefloor!
