Sweet like’a juice
Maxwell D is a handsome fella that can squeal like a pinched-puppy mid-verse – which I rate as a big skill.
Ever since the prime UKG and very early grime days, Maxwell was pushing loud and essentially London sounds with the other Pay as U Go Cartel team (yep, like Wiley) and is now teaming with stunning producers like Lil Silva, to create fresh uk-funky driven anthems to make your head bounce.
The 1st is a smasher focused on Maxwell’s love for social networking and sms communication, complete with Lil Silva’s ‘Different’ track backing things up – sounds stretched right? It’s ain’t, it’s so SUMMER i wanna package it up and issue UV warnings.
Now, any one else who’s brain was owned by UKG in the late 90s will have a warm spot for Sticky, who belongs in the top 3 producers of the entire genre. ‘Boo’ with vocals from Ms Dynamite was THE TRACK y’know? Now Maxwell D has stuck some more SMS devotion over Sticky’s ‘Fugitive’ beats and it’s so alive.
Look out for the full fresh album: Funky Funky Funky – Maxwell D Takeover, mixed by DJ Sidies. It’s a storm.
