Lauter Records‘ very own Maximillion is back with three fresh and truly beautiful moody house tracks in the form of “Butter” EP alongside Legit Trip and GruuvElement’s on remix duties. Luxembourg-based Lauter team is well-known for its daring releases, sweet sounds and live showcases, featuring artists like K POD & Indygo, Dario, Mori Miller, CVO, Bee Lincoln, Daniel Meister, Jacobo Saavedra, Subliime, Victor Fedorow, Tripmastaz, as well as curators Alex Heide and Max, among many many others.
Aside from Lauter, Maximillion has also brought forward must-have materials via Samani, As Usual Music, Nala Music, Asymmetric Recordings, Tonkind, Ante Records and Chapter 24 Records, to name a few. Playfully reshaping the sound today, we feature GruuvElement’s Remix of “Captain Midnight”, so let’s switch through the frequencies with style and deeply explore beyond the boundaries of electronic music genres!
“All of the tracks were produced during the lockdown. Butter expresses more the desire I had that time to be back on the dancefloor, dancing to nice house music. I composed Imri when I found out that my girlfriend and I will have a boy (it‘s his name) and it is a very emotional track for me. Captain Midnight is a very trippy track, I guess I was just experimenting a bit on this one during my lockdown sessions. The EP offers a solid range of different moods and feels ideal for hot summer nights and… it’s a daddy thing! Cheers!”Maximillion
The original mix of the title track “Butter” delivers a joyful ride into the realms of retro house, unleashing a positive vibe with its swinging piano notes, warm wobbly bassline and inviting vocal cuts. The reinterpretation from Legit Trip adds a minimalistic trippy touch and provides a nice drive while keeping to the energy. “Imri”, named after the artist’s recently born son, is probably the most emotional track, revealing soulful atmospheres and chords that are steadily balanced by an uptempo rhythm. “Captain Midnight” follows up with a deeper approach to exotic house-infused affairs, constantly building tension while our featured track, GruuvElement’s Remix dives deep into minimal techno soundwaves, dropping a peak time weapon for the dancefloor. The glitched patterns and the steady rhythm provide a complete experience.
