A hotttt video just landed in my inbox -yes, that’s hotttt with four Ts
Pure class videography from the team over at ugroove.tv that were enlisted to trail Maceo Plex around the UK on his new year’s eve/day triple gig. This is a guy who has worked hard for two decades gaining respect and then suddenly smashed through to a new level after creating some sexy deep grooves, which Damian Lazarus subsequently signed an album full of to his Crosstown Rebels imprint in 2011.
Lost In Musik were out in Miami filming him in 2011 at the slamming Get Lost party. Definitely a highlight of the trip. One of the fresh things Maceo Plex (aka Maetrik, or just Eric Estornel) brings is his live performance using a microphone, vocoder, touch-screen device, Ableton Live and an APC40. The vocals bring back that live vibe with killer beats and loops to compliment them. Heidi says it all in the video with “you made 2011 sexy”. He sure did.
Anyway, enough talking, here’s the footage. This is the future of music videos, slick editting, well thought out, and sick beats of course. Hat’s off to uGroove and great to see Maceo Plex rocking the place.
