Premiere: Maxwell Simons & Big Space – In Yo Feelings (feat. Shamon Cassette)
Protean producer Maxwell Simons collaborates with South African producer Big Space and LA rapper Shamon Cassette on a hard-hitting footwork track, released via Milan imprint, Beat Machine Records.
Neon red and white lights scored the car’s glossy shell as it sped along the highway. He felt his lower arms begin to go numb and his nails dig into his palms has he gripped the steering wheel, watching buildings chase each other and compete for the recognition of his peripheral vision.
But it didn’t even seem as if his eyes registered any of it at all. The adrenaline put him in a stupor…
Though almost always flavoured with hints of industrial, rap and bass, it’s hard to know exactly what to expect from Italian-Brazlian producer Maxwell Simons. His sound engineering background is reflected in a commitment to experiment with fusing electronics and samples, field recordings and live instrumentation.
His forthcoming release ‘Rua 29’ gives it to you hard and fast, shuttling between hard techno, jungle and footwork and featuring a fierce remix from London badman, Deft.
Our pick ‘In Yo Feelings (feat. Shamon Cassette)’ layers live percussion on top of a stuttering footwork rhythm and the audacious rap of Shamon Cassette. Not for the faint-hearted.
