Top ten November tunes from Maelstrom featuring Air Max ’97, Paula Temple, DJ Stingray and more.
A maelstrom, the chaos, a vortex, a turmoil. These are appropriate words to describe the hard work of the prolific French producer.
With a cryptic history incorporating nearly two decades of aliases and side projects born out of free parties in warehouses, fields and basements, it is under this moniker that the artist has truly come into his own. His skill and vision spanning from 135 BPM wave powerful to a pensive and subtle ambient track, Maelstrom’s sonic universe is both precise and limitless.
Maelstrom co-founded the label RAAR in 2015 with frequent collaborator Louisahhh where he released his first albums “Her Empty Eyes” and “Rhizome”. He has also released with cutting edge imprints such as CPU and Cultivated Electronics in the UK, Private Persons in Moscow, and Mechatronica in Berlin, while playing all-electro live sets from Paris to London to Tokyo.
