Sound presents Maxxi Soundsystem w/ Monsieur Frazier
As the son of a jazz pioneer, Sam Watts a.k.a Maxxi Soundsystem, used his early musical influences and became one of the most powerful DJ and record producers in UK dance music scene. After his remixes for Parallel Dance Ensemble’s, ‘Shopping Cart,’ and Kasper Bjorke’s, ‘Lose Yourself To Jenny,’ which both became ubiquitous hits, he received recognition by being featured on podcasts and DJ sets around the world with many international DJ’s playing his music out — from the late Avicii to DJ Harvey. Following those remixes, stellar originals followed. Techno banger, ‘Stella’s Way,’ was picked up by Maceo Plex for his Ellum Audio label, while ‘Regrets We Have No Use,’ landed on Hypercolour. The latter of those tracks helped cement a working relationship with vocalist, Name One, which has led to follow-up single, One In Three, signed by house music titans, Defected.
Opening duty goes to LA’s one and only, Monsieur Frazier, who earned his name with his traditionalist sounds of Chicago House, New York Garage, and Deep House, as well as Detroit Techno, and early UK House Music and Garage music.
