Premiere: Maceo Plex Vs. Swayzak – 5th Dimensional Groove (Original Mix)

Published On 24/05/2017 | Premiere

Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of club sounds, as well as an ability to investigate the darker side of life, Maceo Plex is one of those rare all around electronic music figures who has mastered the balance between funk liberation and mechanical control.

Currently in the conversation for world’s most popular DJ, the Ellum head honcho returns to his imprint with a cosmically traversing journey of a two track EP – ‘The Tesseract/5th Dimensional Groove’. With the A-side being an urban soundtrack to post industrial decay and its B-side a more stripped back approach.

A collaboration with veteran UK duo Swayzak, ‘5th Dimensional Groove’ features a trembling lead synth snaking in between a mix of low-end sequences and minimal, but forceful, pneumatic percussion, all leading toward a slew ofunexpected breakdowns / meltdowns. The entire package is sure to be a staple of Maceo Plex massive Ibiza residency MOSAIC, which kicks off on 30 May at Pacha Ibiza.

“The Tesseract/5th Dimensional Groove” is available 26 May on Ellum PRE ORDER
