‘Can’t Leave You’ on Crosstown Rebels
This fine Maceo Plex moment is brought to you in part by Damian Lazarus’ seminal imprint Crosstown Rebels; a nine-minute track complete with a delicious guitar riff, crisp claps and a monstrous Reese synthesizer growl. Linking up with Lazarus when he moved to Spain in 2010, the record label served as a crucial launching pad for Estornel’s Maceo Plex project, releasing his debut LP ‘Life Index’ in 2011 along with a slew of other fantastic singles and EPs between 2010 - 2012.
‘Can’t Leave You’ is a profound example of Maceo Plex’s ability to create cutting-edge music (with a dash of pop-appeal) that is deep, soulful and accessible without losing sight of forward-thinking production habits.
