Now I might be a bit biased since Max August is from my neck of the woods but there is no denying that he has a bright future ahead of him. The twenty-four year old Brooklyn producer, originally from Westchester, New York shows us that even in a world full of superstar producers/DJs that there will always be people that will continue on the legacy of putting out quality and unique sounds for the world to hear.

That last statement is made very clear with Max's debut EP "The Shakedown". Starting off with the very deep and melodic track "King Felix", Max brings great sound design and arrangement that'll get the dance floor moving. This is kept going with the second track off the EP "The Shakedown", which continues the melodic feel that "King Felix" started with but then does a complete 180 that would indeed make floors shake. "Love Slowly" brings a sound that's similar to Daft Punks rendition of the "Tron" soundtrack but with that future bass feel that works much better than expected.

In a world where people hear music from labels, collectives, or blogs. It's great to see that even though the majority of the community is invested into their personal favorites or big names, there are still people out there putting out great music just waiting to be discovered. Max August being one of them.
