Just in time for summer, and another season of gigs across the world, Maceo Plex returns to his own Ellum Audio with a new track, his first outing since his Mutant Robotics release in 2018.
The Spanish based American is adventurous in the studio, which is shown with ‘When The Lights Are Out’ a track that serves up a seven-minute techno trip.
It is deep and melodic with drums setting an inviting mid-tempo pace and the melancholic chords adding lasting emotion to the groove. A heartfelt female vocal is the centrepiece that should get hands in the air this summer.
Next to an instrumental, there is a Late Night Mix that is more driving, with glossy synths shining bright in the expansive skies above the drums.
It’s out now.
