050 | max cavalerra – the bigger, the better e.p.

Higher, further, faster – this is the approach of Max Cavalerra who significantly influenced the sound of Broque.de. His latest EP doesn’t hesitate at all but makes its points straight away. The Munich based DJ – also well-known for his releases on Karmarouge – launches a firework of sudorific bass whirls, groovy percussions and culminating breaks. But he never forgets about emotions and melodies. Max wants to see the people dancing and we believe we have to support him on his way by releasing this great EP.

Will give it some spins to try out – BOUM! TCHAK! on CIBL 101.5 FM Radio Montréal Airplay „DIVERSIONS“ ON CHRY 105.5FM Thanks for sending me THE BIGGER, THE BETTER ep (BROQUE 050) by MAX CAVALERRA! Here’s some thoughts/feedback: „Overall this is a HOT EP! Three very solid and enjoyable tracks; FUNCTION is my pick – real nice driving bassline with a sprinkling of well placed effects and lots of shifting rhythmic patterns to keep the tension flowing (and the feet movin)“ Mateo Murphy (Underwater, Tronic, Turbo, Ascend) Really love the first three tracks on this, function in particular.. great ep! I’ll send you a chart soon cheers, mateo Noah Pred (Metapath, Morris Audio) proper techno: ‚function‘ rides a taut yet funky pulse into the late hours, while the swirling atmospheres of ‚impact‘ guide a mechanistic groove to the dark heart of dancefloor insanity – but ‚in memory of violett‘ shows us max’s sensitive side with deep and wistful melodies. the other two are a bit aggro for my style, but all-in, it’s a very well rounded package. thanks for sending… –Radio 1 I like Max Cavalerra ep, ecsp. first 3 track are very good, In memory of Violett is the best. Patrick Bateman (Tic Tac Toe Records) WOW, really cool stuff. Don’t like 1000ccm track, but the rest is really cool music!! THANKS.

Paul Brtschitsch – die cavallera e.p ist ja mal der oberkracher! irgend etwas hat mich an max seinen produktionen bisher immer gestört bzw. nie so 120%ig überzeugt. das kann ich hier nicht mehr sagen. das ist einfach so eine ansage an den ganzen halbseiden- produzierten schrott, der so umherfliegt…junge junge, so essenzkräftig und stilgetreu habe ich schon lange nichts mehr zu hören bekommen…ja, ein bischen neid macht sich da schon breit :)) nee im ernst : gratulation!! Axel Bartsch – function find ich oberfett! groove charts platz 2.
