Since first tinkering with hardware modules in 1997, Maceo Plex (known back then as Maetrik) has been fully committed to mind-bending sonic exploration in the studio, and wrecking dance floors across the world.
Since his earliest techno/electro productions in the 90s rave scene, The Maceo Plex aesthetic developed into his once-signature growling techno, but eventually came to embody a deeper groove and funk. His penchant for blending and sculpting these sounds for different dance floors has made him one of the more nuanced and diverse acts working in techno today.
Along the way he’s developed a flare for reconceptualizing dance floors, which lead him to the cavernous Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam for an electrifying performance amongst Rembrandts, and even taking in 10 odd gigs in 24 hours in Ibiza last season.
Maceo Plex has released on some of house and techno’s most revered labels, including Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, M-nus, Kompakt and Drumcode, while his own imprint Ellum Audio—which he started out of Miami in 2011—has become home to the likes of Danny Daze, Booka Shade, Shall Ocin and Maxxi Soundsystem. While it’s difficult to pick out a single track that stands out from his extensive backcatalog, Maceo Plex’s enormous remix of GusGus’ “Crossfade” and his original “Solitary Daze” became 2014 anthems at DC-10, Amnesia and Space.
As one of the underground’s hottest properties and consistent artists, we’re delighted to welcome Maceo Plex to Morocco this year for Oasis festival.
