Maetrik-aka-Maceo-PlexUndoubtedly one of the most established figures in today’s house and techno scene, Eric Estronel aka Maceo Plex first etched his name on international festival and party line-ups in the year 2000. His music, released mostly under the alias of Maetrik at the time, quickly captivated the industry with its dynamically rich deep house sound and experimental techno vibes.  Although Plex typically experiments with the more futuristic and synth-heavy side of techno, his style of sound is best left undefined. By establishing his own label in 2011 titled Ellum Audio, Maceo Plex was able to use his East Coast based imprint as an outlet for the enormous amount of music he was creating under multiple aliases. It is no surprise that his more deep and sexy productions under Maceo Plex have earned him the most respect in the industry.

The strong level of trust between Plex and his fans has allowed him to push the boundaries of his own sound, which is extremely evident in his latest edit of Aphex Twin‘s track, “Polynomial C”. Successfully remixing an artist as experienced and influential as UK native Aphex Twin, is no easy task. Maceo Plex however, undertakes this task with meticulous attention to the record’s original sound, incorporating his own futuristic sound in the track’s most flexible areas. To express enduring gratitude to his fans, Plex decided to release the seven minute Aphex Twin edit for free on his SoundCloud, stating that the original track changed his life twenty years ago.
