Maelstrom first came to prominence with a now infamous reworking of Metro Area’s seminal Miura and quickly gained support from the likes of Todd Terje and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy despite being his debut production.
Determined not to be a flash-in-the-pan producer, he was quickly signed up by the revered Belgian imprint Eskimo Recordings where his Balearic-tinged disco house sits perfectly alongside the likes of Aeroplane, Peter Visti and, of course, Lindstrom and Prins Thomas. His knack for cleverly crafting edits has also grown with releases on Mindless Boogie, Beard Science and his own Solardisco label.
Originally set up as a vehicle for his own productions, 2009 will see Solardisco go in to overdrive with releases and remixes from the likes of Ilija Rudman, Sankt Goran, Blackbelt Andersen, Brendon Moeller, Runaway and Nick Chacona to name but a few with a joint release planned with the uber-hip DFA Records in the summer.
As an accomplished DJ he has recently taken in gigs in Stockholm, Athens, Dublin, London (including the legendary Horse Meat Disco) and as far afield as Vilnius in Lithuania.He also runs the Solardisco clubnights,alongside Craig Moog(Electrofunkdiscotek) and Kev Stevens.
With more releases imminent on Eskimo, Mindless Boogie,his own Solardisco label and Prins Thomas’ Internasjonal this year is shaping up nicely for the Glaswegian.
