Located deep within the circuitry of a mechanical alien host known as Maetrik you will find a complex web of synaptic disbursements resembling what could be called a soul. And this soul which drives its host and manipulates it’s every move is finally beginning to emerge. Its name is Maceo Plex. The emergence of such an entity has been the result of a need for feeling, a need for interplanetary funk. Maceo Plex is on a quest to fulfil his need to inject feeling and funk into the world, and he’s already proving to be quite productive.

With deep and funky works of audible engineering for the label Crosstown Rebels in the form of a full-length album titled 'Life Index' released in 2011, a night with Maceo Plex of galactic proportions certainly ensued. To explain the evolutionary process behind Maceo’s existance we must travel back to 1993, to the beginning of his creativity. At the start, Maceo was intrigued by vinyl resurgence. Soon he began conjuring up mixes of techno, electro, and house music that quickly gained him popularity within the early 90s rave culture. But in 1997, while Heavily influenced by the sounds of other modern funk theorists such as Model 500, Kenny Larkin, Idjut Boyz, Convextion and many more.

After many years of prolific works on such labels as Treibstoff, Dumb Unit, Cocoon, Audiomatique, Modern Love, Mothership, to name a few, Maceo aka Maetrik travelled the world playing in some of the best clubs such as Rex, Cocoon, Fabric, Womb, and many more. Retreating into the funky sounds of Parliament-Funkadelic, Moodymann, Atjazz, Isolee, and Luomo, Maceo has finally completed his transformation and is shining brighter than ever, and his newest musical outputs reflect his radiation in a variety of beautiful colours.
