10 Ibiza sets in 24 hours

Maceo is never one to turn down a challenge, and this time he wanted to test his vitality, skill and true perseverance as a DJ.

In the summer of 2016, Plex played 10 sets in 10 different locations in just 24 hours across the White Isle. The excursion was part of his Mosaic concept, to which he honored by playing each session in a different genre.

Estronel described it as: "Different kinds of music that fit into one idea of journey or piece of art".

Absolutely epic.

'Solar'

The release of Estronel’s second album as Maceo Plex was more than just an LP. ‘Solar’ was the maestro’s magnum opus - his redefining statement as an artist. Somewhere between the infinite club nights and techno weaponry, Plex realized he wanted to offer more and give his fans a deeper experience of his musical scope.

The debut release on his new Lone Romantic imprint showed Maceo Plex as a composer, an orchestrator of emotion, a divine fusion of beautiful dissonance, flowing vocals and sharply placed, classically twisting techno. With ‘Solar’, Estronel successfully kept to his dramatic dark roots while revealing an ethereal, soulful facet.

He included collaborations with DNCN, Jono McCleery and of course, the long-awaited ‘Polygon Pulse’, a gut-wrenching, expansive ballad that his fans had been yearning over three years for. The passionate production was so absolute that it made Mixmag’s top ten tracks of 2017.
