STACEY

Posted on April 9, 2014 by Maxim Deluxe

Stark minimalism.

Waterfalls of cathedral reverb.

Raw intimacy with the endless haze of sultry summer synth.

Melodies rife with the delicacy of raw, unadulterated romance.
Lyrics emanating a requiem for often unrequited love.

Technicolor production with microscopic details.
The sad ending sensual.
A lot with very little.

Stacey is a singer and songwriter from Toronto and we love her.

WILHELM BEARNHARDT

Posted on March 19, 2014 by Maxim Deluxe

Wilhelm Bearnhardt is a Brisbane-based Australian producer/designer  who’s real name is Daniel J Skinner. Son of Brass player, WB grew up immersed into classical music and later discovered Electronic Music & Computer-based Production techniques. Technology was fundamental for him to experiment  his orchestration and compositional ideas. His music, that captures specific aesthetics and values of past golden eras through a modern palette, is distributed via Bandcamp.

” My inspiration comes from many things. The way in which Mark Rothko’s large emotionally intense slabs of colour feather and melt into one another. Richard Wagner for his intensity and boldness, and his progressive storytelling. Alexander McQueen, who I feel shares a common aesthetic for combining golden era themes re-imagined for a vision of the future”

OWLLE

Posted on January 22, 2014 by Maxim Deluxe

In a world of 24 hour party girls, Owlle is a rare creature of the night who finds her bliss in solitude. Her shadowy electropop tunes, like breakout singles “Ticky Ticky” and “Disorder,” reverberate with the tremors of midnight, and the eerie afterglow of dance floors long abandoned. They feel both futuristic and ancient — as does everything Owlle creates. Owlle’s background in fine art allows her to create a distinct world around her. From her art direction and cinematography to costuming choices, Owlle’s mesmerizing imagery is just as important as the music itself. The Owlle experience defies being contained to one form: the sound, style, and visuals must be taken as one convergent reality — a reality of a young artist’s own creation.  Owlle is out now with the debut album ‘ France ‘ on I-tunes.

Posted on August 28, 2013 by Maxim Deluxe

Raised in India and educated in London, Vandana Jain has collected an eclectic tapestry of both musical and aesthetic influences over the years, all of which find a place in the music. Everything from Portishead to Pink Floyd, the rave scene in London and Indian pop music lend to her layered style of glitchy beats, electronic swells and heavy psych rock flares that lay beneath Jain’s emotive front and center vocal play.Although the project is primarily a solo effort, live Vandana teams up with Yusuke Yamamoto, a New York based artist and musician. Together they re-worked the set with live vocals over thick club beats and spontaneous loops for her monthly residency spot at East Village club NUBLU, as well as Brooklyn side mainstays like 285 Kent, Cameo Gallery and The Rock Shop.Brooklyn-based graphic designer turned performance artist Vandana Jain shares her seductive new single “Mask” , the second offering from her forthcoming full-length debut ANTI VENUS due out 10/1: The multi-tiered track follows not only movements through glitchy soundscapes and textured beats, it also shifts through sprawling emotional conflict; Jain says the new single covers “angst, irritation, ghosts, masked attitudes, self scrutiny and finally, there is hope”.Follow Vandana Jain
