DENA

Posted on August 27, 2014 by Maxim Deluxe

Bulgarian-born and Berlin-based wunderkind Denitza Todorova, better known as DENA, wields her signature blend of coy, clever rap hip-pop like a pro on her debut album, Flash. It’s a polished, sanguine record, celebrating the richness of hip hop while acknowledging its more ridiculous facets on tracks such as ‘Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools’, with its thick, thumping pulse and clichéd aspirations.

TIAAN

Posted on July 16, 2014 by Maxim Deluxe

Australian born L.A.- based singer Tiaan and her sound can only be described as sexy. Blame her intimate, intense and hypnotic music or perhaps it’s the slow, sparse R&B beats, the deep, deep bass or the subject matter of some of her songs: passion-fueled affairs and the all-encompassing emotion they  evoke.  Mostly though, the steamy atmosphere derives from the Sydney-born singer’s sensuous vocals, infused with longing and delivering lyrics like secrets being shared.
Listen her amazing  debut EP  on Soundcloud.

WILSEN

Posted on May 14, 2014 by Maxim Deluxe

Wilsen is the creation of 24-year-old London native Tamsin Wilson. Alongside bandmates Johnny Simon Jr and Drew Arndt – both songwriters & producers in their own right – Tamsin Wilson’s passion is for the detail; each Wilsen song is tirelessly sculpted over time, building an atmosphere, a mood, a state of mind. Simon Jr’s minimalist guitar melodies and Arndt’s rhythmic basslines create a platform for the gossamer vocals of Tamsin Wilson, by turns ethereal and earthy, and the rich driving force behind Wilsen’s gentle rise. A self-recorded – over a week in rural Ontario – and self-released mini debut album ‘Sirens’ coincided with the trio’s decision to relocate to New York in the spring of 2012. The album showcased the warmth of Tamsin’s voice and a songwriting palette that moved between post-rock crescendos (‘Anahita’) and gentle folk intimacy (‘Dusk’).

The new ‘Magnolia’ EP will be released on the 19th of May .

SLOW CLUB

Posted on April 30, 2014 by Maxim Deluxe

Slow Club is Sheffield boy-girl duo Charles Watson (guitar, vocals, piano) and Rebecca Taylor (drums, vocals, guitar). The band formed in 2005 when they were both still teenagers and spent the next two years touring relentlessly around the North of England.

Now in 2014 we find Charles and Rebecca emerging from the studio again with what promises to be their career-defining album ‘ Complete Surrender’. Recorded with producer Colin Elliot, who previously helped create an equally widescreen sound on albums by Richard Hawley, ‘Complete Surrender’ touches on everything from Motown and the output of Memphis’ Stax Records to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s, via Frankie Valli and David Bowie. The songs are certainly bigger and the pair have grown from a charmingly ramshackle teenage duo bursting with potential into a fully-formed, self-confident and impressively talented band.

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.
