Maceo Plex presents ‘’93’ with a cinematic production for this hybrid DJ set and music video, filmed at Input in Barcelona, for the launch of his highly anticipated third artist album, released on Lone Romantic. Directed by long term friend, Bernhard Pucher, the pair have worked closely together on various projects during an illustrious career both as Maceo Plex, and under the Maetrik guise.
Marking both a passion and a prolific career, the maestro presents a tantalising body of work that masterfully blends House, Hip Hop, Global Bass, Techno, Breaks, and Electronica. This audacious fusion delves into historic and modern influences, crafting an audio journey that transcends time, rich in history yet boldly future-facing – a homage to Maceo Plex’s three-decade journey through the realms of electronic music.
‘’93′ is a cross-genre exploration, seamlessly balancing emotion with hard-hitting beats. Maceo Plex collaborates with a stellar lineup of artists, including Diplo for his contribution on ‘You Don’t Have To Wait’ with Cubicolor, Oscar and the Wolf, Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), Johnny Jewel and Desire, Kirsty Hawkshaw, Mystic Bill, AVNU, Giovanni, Ishi, and Tyler Hill, resulting in a diverse and dynamic musical affair.
This album narrates the story of a highly esteemed artist at a pivotal juncture in his career, consistently evolving towards new directions. Departing from the early deeper house sound that initially defined him, Maceo Plex intentionally ventures into new territory, steering away from his famed melodic and techno direction in recent years. Nevertheless, ’93’ retains the essence of Maceo Plex’s signature style, transcending various sounds and genres in a manner reminiscent of his electrifying DJ sets, meticulously curated for the dancefloor and the crowds.
‘’93′ by Maceo Plex is available on Lone Romantic from 14th December 2023.
