Maceo Plex reveals details on upcoming Mariel Ito retrospective, ‘2000-2005.’Maceo Ple 2017

Maceo Plex revealed his revival of his Mariel Ito alias in the form two EP releases at the beginning of 2018. The first of the two came out in late January, showing off the more experimental, IDM side of Maceo — born Eric Estornel — that his older friends were missing.  A work by the name of 2000-2005 was set to release through R&S Records in May initially, but the project got pushed back. Now followers can rest easy in knowing that 2000-2005 is readying for its launch at long last, on October 26.

Estornel states the project will feature ten tracks of pure electro and IDM made between the years 2000 and 2005, and carried sounds which “helped sculpt his taste growing up in the 90’s.” The Cuban DJ/producer continues, “Friends have been asking me for years why I ever abandoned [Mariel Ito] in the first place, and would egg me on to relaunch it. Last year, when I decided I wouldn’t continue doing my Mosaic party in Ibiza, I knew I would have more time to finally relaunch it and began writing new material.”

Knife Party drop thunderous new ID during live launch of ‘Knifecast’ podcastKnife Party Knifecast

Knife Party listeners have an opportunity to become better “Internet Friends” with the momentous dubstep duo via “Knifecast,” a radio show-style podcast that gathers Knife Party constituents Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen behind the mic to talk a variety of topics, and as “Knifecast” continues to roll out episodes, to presumably share news about forthcoming releases. Knife Party kicked off the show’s live debut on September 20. Swire and McGrillen introduced the “Knifecast” concept as one that rests “halfway between a podcast and playing music” and were adamant that they didn’t want to just produce a weekly mix. Knife Party additionally plans to host guests, and on-air Q&A sessions featuring fan-submitted questions as “Knifecast” further develops.

Knife Party provided a memorable finale to their inaugural installment of “Knifecast” with their inclusion of a lengthy ID at the episode’s end. A dub-heavy number that wasn’t wanting for wubs, the ID is a heady combination of gritty vocal overlays and wallops of bass. Technical elements aside, the ID indicates that new Knife Party music could be on its way very soon, and “Knifecast” appears to be the primary vehicle of any ensuing new material’s debut.
