One Touch 05:04


Does anything ever stays the same? Everything changes, even when it's not in motion.

Nevertheless, Maximoto from Utrecht puts our minds in motion with his philosophically titled EP To Remain The Same. The debut single is released on OOSSHA, our sister sublabel.

On To Remain The Same you can hear Utrecht based dj, producer and nightlife entrepreneur Maximoto is inspired by Italian disco, New York house and European new wave from the eighties. Just wait when the moody melodies kick in on mid tempo opener One Touch and you are in balearic heaven, with the perfect sunset just beyond the horizon.

Title track To Remain The Same is equally laid back, with a stunning bass synthesizer taking front stage, waiting for a delightful acid line to take over. Lauer displays his love for Depeche Mode with an ace remix. He turns One Touch into a sparkling disco groover that clearly pays tribute to Behind The Wheel, a big hit in the ninetees.

Closer Asking You To Wait is another play with words. Blissful beauty in slow motion. Imagine Saint Etienne in their best years, remixed by Andrew Weatherall. That kinda vibe.

Pretty essential, if you ask us.
