To most in the LA underground scene, Jimmy Maheras is a recognizable name. Perhaps known best for his work as one half of Plastic Love and with Plastic Love Records, Maheras also has his own imprint Into The Woods and boasts releases on Crosstown Rebels, Supernatural, and Leftroom to date. In addition, Jimmy is a respected promoter having brought Steffi, Scuba, and Horse Meat Disco in recent memory.
His latest venture, however, is a solo project. weaving together the styles of pop, electronica, R&B, and progressive, Maheras crafts a fabric unlike any seen before in order to express himself from within. The project, Last Remnants, represents both a new outlet for his solo productions as well as record label for promoting like-minded artists and music.
The Crashing Down EP is the first Last Remnants offering and comes with four total tracks comprised of two originals and two radio edits. The EP’s title track, ‘Crashing Down’, leads the charge with a dilated synth pattern and a simple percussive beat. Lush chords begin fluttering in the back until the soft vocals of Party Nails join in. The sultry vocals offered by Party Nails offer the perfect compliment to the soothing harmonies and undertones provided by Maheras as they all do their part in crafting a memorable atmosphere.
Maheras mellows things out with the second original on the EP, ‘San Junopero’. ‘San Junopero’ is a progressive gem that delivers a silky smooth combination of instrumentals over an ambient soundscape. The instrumental provides the perfect compliment to the EP’s first track before the EP rounds out with the two radio versions.
