German techno star Timo Maas steps away from his own Rockets And Ponies imprint for a single on Joris Voorn & Edwin Oosterwal’s ever excellent Rejected label.
Maas is as busy as ever in 2017, building on decades of experience in the scene. His own label continues to set the techno agenda thanks in large part to his solo releases and collaborative work with James Teej and he even graced this year’s Grammys for his reworking of Paul McCartney alongside his Canadian production partner. Upcoming remixes of Moby are being hotly tipped ahead of release and this new single for Rejected is sure to add further fuel to the fire in what is looking like a very big year for Timo.
Opening up the release is ‘Silver Lines’, a high pressure, multi-layered tune with paranoid vocals barely audible amongst scurrying drums and kicks, smooth synths and a dark sense of energy. It is a creepy cut that is restless and rhythmically fluid, and is sure to fire up dancefloors this summer.
On the flip, ‘Creation’ is a funkier affair with synths skewed and twisted, ghoulish voices and an alien charm that will provide plenty of freaky moments. Always evolving and changing throughout its course, it’s another fantastic production from Maas.
Once again leading from the front, both Rejected and Maas have come correct on this latest release.
Release Date: May 5th, 2017
