Jake Maxfield (Maxfield) attended Berklee College of Music to cultivate his prolific skill with the guitar. Once there, though, the right combination of music, moments, and people soon found him studying electronic music and the technology behind it. Although Jake will still sometimes incorporate his own guitar riffs into his songs, raw, mechanized sound design is his specialty. Still, in funky bass lines and dramatic melodic flourishes one can hear the echoes of Jake's instrumental upbringing.
The Boston-based producer generally chooses not to adhere to trends in electronic songwriting. Instead, he indulges a wandering creativity that blurs the already hazy distinctions between sub-genres of electronic music. Whether he's writing a seven-minute symphonic story or a glitch-laden dance floor wrecker, Maxfield's willingness to experiment distinguishes him and leads to one-of-a-kind compositions.
