Maceo Plex – Conjure Superstar (Original Mix)
The multifaceted man known more commonly as Maceo Plex has enjoyed something of a widespread execution of his Conjure EP series. With its first two instalments set between his own Ellum imprint and Richie Hawtin’s Minus, the late summer sees the experimental club don debut on German stronghold Kompakt for yet another versatile stab at the concept.
The ironically titled “Conjure Superstar” flows and builds in all the right places, beautifully balancing melodic composure with those deep, dark and sometimes warped undertones that have made the Spanish titan’s records an ever-fascinating asset to any given dance floor. At a time when accessibility is the word on everyone’s lips, the track dares to make a statement whilst maintaining its musical integrity. Nothing Maceo Plex touches is safe. That is his lasting charm. Reassuringly, his latest vocal house offering is no different. Still a diverse face in an overcrowded market, this befitting anti-hero anthem is everything and more there is to love about Maceo Plex’s unique grasp on the underground market and its expanding tastebuds right now.
