Keep up with the present or time will pass you by. Electronic music is in a constant state of development and so is IWW label host Maxage. His personal artist biography urges the reader to expect big things and his newest release the D.O.C. 1988 EP clearly shows that Maxage wants to keep this promise. Scabies and Embidi might resemble Maxages earlier work in terms of spaced out vocals and driving midlevel basslines but Maxage is not the guy to rest on his laurels. He has certainly risen the bar regarding complexity and level of detail whilst paying homage to the past with a hinted acid reference. Also Maxage's everlasting love for Italy is yet again represented by long time labelfriend LEON who delivers a jackin' remix for Scabies!
