Tracklist

Daze Maxim – Farbfilm (Original)

Daze Maxim – Farbfilm (Dyed Soundorom Remix)

Daze Maxim – Tableara

 

Ardent vinyl purist, Daze Maxim joins the Apollonia family, while Dyed Soundorom makes his first appearance for the label.

 

The Hello?Repeat founder is officially the first new artist to be signed to Apollonia. His release comes on the back of acclaimed EP’s from label founders Shonky and Dan Ghenacia, together with a celebrated re-press of DJ Gregory’s POINT G classic ‘Underwater’.

 

Highly regarded by those in the know, yet still largely unheralded thanks to his preference to stay out of the media limelight, Daze Maxim has carved a reputation among his contemporaries of being a deep thinking musician as much concerned with composition theory and true musical meaning, as rocking a dancefloor. There was no better example of this than ‘Intimacy Girl’, the track he created under the Heartz4 moniker that became a favourite tune in 2008 for countless DJs and synonymous with the house sound of the Cocoon Terrace in Ibiza.

For his debut EP on Apollonia, Daze has created a hypnotic house gem driven by deep meaty bass and intricate multi-layered synth notes that pays dues to his masterful reputation when it comes to composition.

Heavier on the drums than Daze’s original, Dyed Soundorom delivers a stripped back, tech-friendly re-rub that reinforces his lofty reputation for balancing deep, evocative grooves with hiplashing rhythms to create a cut guaranteed to shake the floor.

 

Rounding out the package is ‘Tableara’, a cut that sees Daze go down a more contemplative minimal route, incorporating shaking percussion, sparse beats and a subtle moody synth line to create a brooding atmosphere that’d put it right at home in a grungy warehouse environment.

Brawther « Decent release. The one for me is Dyed’s Remix ; despite my little knowledge about Dyed’s discography, i feel that it’s his most accomplished work/remix i’ve heard… Every element is where it should be, solild balance between the rolling bassline and drums, the use of the vocals is spot on, wrap it up with the rhodesy deepness. It has been a long time since iv heard a solid track like that.. and coming from France… so im even more please. Finally a new record i look forward to buy. Merci. »
