Review

This is this years last chapter of our colored vinyl series and we welcome a new youngblood to our label. MXM (short for “Maxim") is a fresh talent from the UK. He released music on Hydrogen Dukebox, Combination Records and Snap-Shot. He also got future projects with Linkwood (Firecracker, Prime Numbers) coming soon. On Philpot he delivers two versions of the chord-driven “Move Me” track feat. Jemima! A great, deep vocal-anthem for the earlier hours of your set. On the flip, the first track “The Untitled Deep” is an absolute stunning Electro track in the truest form of it´s meaning. Like an update of early Cybotron with a bassline that kills and keys to put a smile on your face! The last track called “Jazz Seducer” chops some nice piano-chords over a funk-laden beat, simple and plain…great!

PHP034 in the media

Clickgroove (UK): “Philpot’s latest signing is UK's MXM (or Maxim) whose production style varies from electronic, future jazz to deep/techy house on this EP. 'Move Me' features sweet vocals from Jemima lacing MXM’s soft, intricate production. Twisted's groover is far more hard-edged with some great bass-synths and flute samples. 'The Untitled Deep' changes gear into flowing, deep electro and some cool melodic pads, touching on the experimental in places. 'Jazz Seducer' brings up the rear with rich jazz samples, cut to a clear house groove. A very solid EP!”

Raveline: “Ungeahnt warme Chords und engelsgleiche Female Vocals von Jemima, schweben durch den Raum und betten den Hörer in ein Geflecht aus Liebe und Zuneigung. Zumindest solange bis die Acidbassline einsetzt und versucht das Ganze ein wenig aufzulockern. Was aber keineswegs stört, sondern sich in das Gesamtbild nahtlos einfügt und bereichert. Der Twisted Rmx. klingt weniger rund und durch verzerrte Sounds gewollt schlecht produziert. So etwas kann gut gehen, in dem Fall aber leider nicht. Gleiches gilt für "The Untitled Deep" und "Jazz Seducer", welche es ebenfalls nicht schaffen ein Gesamtbild zu kreieren das in sich stimmig und überzeugend klingt. Aber für das unglaublich schöne "Move me" verdiente. Rusty 6/6”
