The world renowned producer and DJ releases his first full length album in six years on his brand new label Lone Romantic ; it will focus on albums and will also open its doors to releasing more avant guard and leftfield singles.

Acclaimed US DJ and producer Maceo Plex has announced the release of his long awaited studio album “Solar“. The climax to a lead up that included last year’s 7-track ‘Journey to Solar’, and 2015’s 2 track ‘Solar Sampler’, this album is due for release next 16th June 2017 on his brand new label Lone Romantic that will focus on albums but also open its doors to releasing more avant guard and leftfield singles.

Meanwhile, the “Solar” album allows Maceo to utilise the long format to explore and expose his less explicitly club leaning and more reflective side, taking the listener on a journey through shades of electronica, techno, breakbeats, dub and more. Named after his son Solar, the album also chronicles his new found fatherhood; “the ups and downs in the first few years and its effects on life, marriage and more”.

The release of this album sees Maceo Plex enter a new, more developed chapter of his long career – taking the sounds that have made him so popular and building upon them to push himself forward artistically, the album is a very personal use of the long format and an education in the producer’s musical influences.
