Born and bred in London, DJ/Producer Max Dean is an artist on an undeniably impressive trajectory. Inspired by retro sounds that build the foundations of his groove-focused signature, Max’s appetite for catchy basslines, bubbling drum work, and swinging rhythms have quickly captured the attention of artists, labels, and fans alike.
All three tracks are handy, playable cuts, that clock in somewhere between the techno and the minimal markers. The title track Can’t Slow Down is suspenseful, forthright, and pleasingly psychedelic, which offers an energetic, sub-heavy take on house music. Focus comes pumping in with twists and turns through hypnotic beats, alongside a blissful yet haunted melodic background.
Finally, Uppy concludes with an excitable modern-day dub flavour rounding off this bouncy EP on a high. Already boasting a profound catalogue of releases, Max’s work finds itself at home on the likes of Hottrax, South Records, Repopulate Mars, plus many more, With the upcoming addition of Eastenderz, and his ever-growing tour schedule, it’s impossible to ignore Max’s snowballing presence in global dance culture.More Like ENDZ052 - Max Dean
