UK-based DJ and Producer Max Chapman has spent his career racking up releases on some of the scene’s hottest record labels. To date, Hot Creations, Snatch!, Elrow, VIVa, Toolroom, and Madtech have all had Chapman aboard for releases, and this month the standout joins another label for the first time, Wow! Recordings.
The Leave Off EP is a three-track piece that kicks off with the title track. Boasting that UK House flair every step of the way, Chapman slides in to a groove early on in ‘Leave Off’ with a swift hi hat melody, echoed claps, and a tight kick while layering an intense vocal over the top.
‘Mia’ comes in with a rolling back end and an undeniable groove from beat one. This slick, Tech House offering features looped, female vocal samples, hypnotic synth lines, and an infectious break down over a relentless beat, making for the perfect dance floor weapon.
‘Set My Body Free’ has a free-flowing spirit that is sure to get just about anybody moving out on the dance floor. Heavily reliant on tribal-influenced drum fills and lush pads, Max Chapman delivers all the right ebbs and flows on a release that is sure to set your body free.
