Finally making an appearance on the imprint helmed by Maceo Plex is alter ego Maetrik with the %u2018Unleash The Beast EP%u2019. A subtle shift in style for Ellum Audio, the undisputed modern master of seductive, brooding basslines and compulsive killer tunes imparts his tougher credentials without forgoing the sensual touch.
First sampled in classic early 90s record %u2018Poem%u2019 by Bobby Konders, the words of Reggae poet Mutaburuka have surfaced again as a dominant feature in a-side %u2018The Poem%u2019 %u2013 a slice of deep tech bubbling with heat, richly dark atmosphere, and syncopated drums. Having long resonated with Eric Estornel aka Maetrik/Maceo Plex, the producer has utilized the original verse from a def-poetry jam video creating a bona fide bomb in the process with a nod to the classic era of house.
Next up, Maceo Plex gets %u201CRevenge%u201D with his %u2018Walk Alone%u2019 remix combining his own well-renowned vocal flair with a cascade of synth melodies and stabs of wonky bass driven by slick beats and the ever-marauding bassline. The toughest and techiest cut on the EP comes with closer %u2018To The Top%u2019, showcasing a raw and dirty warehouse vibe with a growling low-end, wonky bass synths and flecks of acid.
Over a decade after the first Maetrik release on Immigrant Records back in 2000, it%u2019s safe to say that Eric Estornel aka Maceo Plex has the industry at his feet. A powerful force in electronic music with a deeply distinctive sound, Eric%u2019s mega following is in the grip of his devastatingly addictive and beautifully engineered dancefloor assaults. A first for Ellum Audio, Maetrik%u2019s %u2018Unleash The Beast EP%u2019 may well take this remarkable artist to even headier heights.
