2. Maceo Plex
Chosen by Damian Lazarus, DJ, Crosstown Rebels: ‘When I first heard his music in 2009, I figured that here was a sound that the dancefloor could head towards. I asked him if a more soulful, funk-driven approach to his music was something he wanted to move into. Within 12 months, we had an album together of fresh electronic beauty. At his first live show in Miami this March, everyone went absolutely nuts. Over 100,000 people have now watched his ‘Vibe Your Love’ video on YouTube. His debut album, ‘Life Index’, came out in January and has already become a classic. He’s currently working on a second full-length, which will be out mid-2012. It’s going to be one hell of a hot summer!’ www.facebook.com/maceoplex
