Max Cooper is an artist who draws inspiration from many different genres and influences, bringing it together in a unique style that is hypnotic, dark and melodic.
If you follow Max’s music you will instantly be able to recognise his productions. His beats are extremely intricate and although very glitchy at times they still manage to blend together, forming a perfect groove that compliments the complex melodies and lush atmospheres which sit above them.
He is a true artist who never compromises his integrity; this is all too apparent when you see how dedicated his fan base is. Amongst his fans are some of the biggest DJ’s in the world including Sasha and John Digweed for whom Max has released music on their respective labels Last Night On Earth and Bedrock.
Max is renowned for his remixes. Reworks of Hot Chip and Portishead are prime examples and set the blogs alight whilst topping the Hype Machine in the process.
Here we have his latest remix. Gorgeous and melodic, it really takes the listener on a journey.
We thought we would start off with a bang and what an E.P this is! Paco Osuna never fails to deliver and this new E.P on Plus 8 is further testament to that. The E.P is the second instalment of his Amigos series which is a line of collaborations with his close friends who also happen to be amazing artists and producers in their own right. Its very convenient to have these types of friends when you want to make dancefloor BOMBS!
Here is the lead track of the E.P which is a collaboration with John Lagora titled “Art Confusion”. This track is our personal favourite of the E.P. You can really hear the different production styles of Paco and Lagora and they blend together perfectly, the groovy bassline and vocal chops scream of Paco Osuna and this signature style has seen him rise steadily through the ranks to become one of the hottest producers and DJs in the scene. He is currently touring the U.S with Richie Hawtin and Loco Dice on the CNTRL tour and I am sure this track is destroying the floors out there and making people wonder why the hell they have been listening to EDM for the last 12 months!
The collaboration with Sinisa Tamamovic comes a close second but in truth they are all serious weapons and the production quality is to a very high standard.
Props to Uner and Tony Rohr on the other two remaning tracks which you can hear along with the full E.P on Beatport using the link below.
