[Release] This man and label need no introduction: the notoriously ground breaking sounds and envelope pushing beats speak for themselves.
A special tribute addition of Ellum Audio comes courtesy of Maceo Plex & JonDasilva, who bring back a pair of bygone musical gems with their own modern interpretations. Featuring an astonishing guest appearance by house vocal sensation Joi Cardwell, Ellum delivers a late summer anthem with Love Somebody Else. For the A-side Eric Estornel aka Maceo Plex revives an unreleased Jon DaSilvaRemix of Colourblinds cover of 1979 Jones Girls classic You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else. Having loved the remix, lost in the heady days of the early 90s, Eric orchestrated a studio session with legendary hacienda DJ Jon DaSilva to make a new reinterpreted version of the track replaying everything and creating a new melodies and sonsstructure, also managing to track down classic house singer Joi Cardwell to lay down fresh vocals and creating a real floor burner as a result. Irresistibly warm, smooth and groovy, Love Somebody Else is quite simply massive. On the flip, Maceo Plex goes it alone and delivers Future Musik – homage to a favourite Closer Musik track that never did see an official release.Chilean/German duo Closer Musik (Dirk Leyers & Matias Aguayo) released anumber of shimmering slices of electronica around a decade ago on the mythicalKompakt Recordings and Maceo Plexs re-imagining and interpretation of their untitled work employs rich layers of molten pads and laid-back hats until a powerful bassline cuts through the calm and Maceos rippling vocals work their magic.
As always, Maceo & Ellum present us with serious quality tracks. Anything attached to either name never fails to impress. Loving this release and definitely looking forward to the next one.
