Prolific American producer Eric Estornel better known as Maceo Plex has enjoyed a meteoric rise in popularity over the last couple of years, with a string of popular releases and the formation of his own imprint Ellem Audio but enjoyed a particularly successful 2012 with release on some of years hottest labels such as Crosstown Rebels and No.19 Music. So with a big last year behind him it came as little surprise when he was announced as the first act of 2013 to helm the popular DJ Kicks compilation series.
Maceo Plex has promised his incarnation of the series to be a little different to his usual sonic palette with proceedings getting “little more deep and futuristic” as he bids to take people on a different journey to previous efforts. With a mix of old and new and promises of experimentation we’re excited to see exactly how the mix has turned out with re-edits of some classics that Eric thought “were missing percussion, or some other element I thought they could use.” an exclusive track of his own in “Galactic Cinema.” Can’t wait…
