England born, New Zealand resident Maxwell Sweeney has been making music over the last 10 years in a range of genres and styles, under a few different aliases. He first came to our attention with some impressive demos that culminated in his first 2 track single on Soulvent titled ‘Vector’ back in 2017. Since then, Max has not wasted a second, racking up 5 standalone releases on our own imprint as well as releases across Terra Firma, Fokuz Recordings, Shogun Audio and more. In 2020 he started his own label ‘Music Monika’ to house some of his own material and he also began releasing music as a duo, with his good friend American producer & cat enthusiast Akuratyde. However, when ‘Fly To You’ landed in our inbox, it was clear this was a one-way-ticket to the stratosphere.
‘Fly To You’ is a beautifully crafted roller of a track, opening with a bubbling sequenced synthesizer and a moody tambourine which are quickly joined by a tight jungle break and a gorgeous Goldie-esque vocal. The pounding bassline and myriad of other pleasing bass elements throughout the track are only matched by the viscerally progressive percussive work.
