Maxi Meraki releases on Tensnake’s True Romance Imprint


Fresh Belgian talent Maxi Meraki channels his raw disco and house signature blend into a three-piece release oozing with groove for True Romance.

While he’s known for always being smiling, Maxi Meraki is also putting bright tones in his releases and sets. Think of connections between raw disco beats and melodic, minimal house. A real symbiosis between the old school sound and new melodic beats. While playing records at locals venues in Antwerp, Belgium and Amsterdam, The Netherlands: he’s always looking forward to the summer season in Spain, holding residencies and making fun in Barcelona, Marbella and Ibiza. Signing this new 3 track EP at the ’True Romance Records’ label of Tensnake.

Funky loops and mirrorball disco come together in ‘Constellations’, the first track of the EP. A lush vocal gives it its disco tinge, while radiating arp synths pulsate along. ‘Lie Machine’ centres around a classic house vocal, locked into a spiralling synth backdrop. Its effect is so stirring as it instantly hooks and delivers a dance-inducing drop.

‘On Baby’ the atmosphere turns enigmatic as the track moves through a steady bassline and a whirlwind synth, leading to emphatic crescendos and laid back resolutions. All three tracks have an instant feel-good energy and, like all feelgood tracks, finish as though they have more to say.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
