MAXIMONO’s new EP on Dirtybird is available now
Fresh out of the nest, our latest release comes from the upstart German/English combination called, Maximono. The Hanover/London based protagonists Sebi and Nick come correct, armed with bouncing basslines and erupting big room aesthetics on Sorry,’ their debut release with the DIRTYBIRD family.
This weirdo A/B side was one of the main highlights of Claude VonStrokes recent epic set at the famed Desert Hearts festival up in the cold mountains of Southern California. On the lead track Sorry, a hard-ass kick drum sets the pace before a descending drop reveals oscillated, whistling melodies and skipping marching beats, making way to a jittery breakdown. Its hard to imagine making these tracks without being slightly insane, with razor sharp square-wave bass attacking the feet with vigour and funked-out energy.
On the flip, ‘So Hot’, winding drums and bleeping FX create an off kilter booty rhythm, while a sassy vocal stab proclaims it’s ‘so hot!,’ before the drop brings a cheeky, chirpy bottom heavy wobbler, flanked by neuron tingling melodic lines.
It’s all in a days work for us here – and unlike young Maximono, we’re NOT sorry for unleashing this latest beast. Enjoy!
