Renegade Riddims: MAE917
Arturo Zamudio is known professionally as MAE917, a Mexican/American record producer, instrumentalist and DJ originating from El Paso, Texas. Growing up he found his love for unique electronic music with the likes of Aphex Twin and The Prodigy. Developing his production MAE917’s thirst for wildly diverse futurism led to his own creative stamp on experimental genres such as Drum and Bass, UKG, Dubstep and Trip-Hop.
MAE917 holds his later influences within a unique blend of Psy-trance, Drum & Bass and Progressive Rock. Though noting the breakthrough influential moment, it was Dubstep that sealed the deal for MAE917 after experiencing a killer headlining set from Broken Note at a private underground party.
From that night Arturo found himself in love with the wobble bass, high reverb snares and delved deeper into the network actively following artists like Reso, Xilent, Rusko, Venetian Snare and Square-Pusher. Currently surfing on his Space Music wave MAE917 combines the energy of epic Trance melodies with some seriously rude drum beats.
We’ve been working with Arturo for a while now and have witnessed his progression first hand. He’s self-released quite a few tracks and bootlegs and has had music released on labels such as Strictly Deep DNB, Detached Audio and DLA Black Records. He’s also given away loads of his music as free downloads. One thing’s for sure this guy is a grafter and it won’t be long before he’s signing music to more labels.
But, for now, he joins us on our Renegade Riddims series, with a glorious mix of tracks from himself, Arxiva, Fade Black, Amoss, OaT, Monty and loads more!
