MaXXXimum – “Destroy the Dancefloor” [VIDEO]

Meet Max Kline, a London-based electro producer who goes by the stage name MaXXXimum. Recently, he released a new track entitled “Destroy the Dancefloor” which I have taken a serious liking to. It has even supplanted The Shrugs‘ nearly two week hold of my cell phone’s ringtone. I once read, of MaXXXimum’s basslines, that the “XXX” in his name was appropriate because his basslines were so dirty.

Klein has been garnering local attention and has been featured on BBC’s “Introducing…,” which strives to support unsigned, undiscovered, and under the radar artists. You can hear a portion of that segment here. For you viewing pleasure, Klein has also created a video, a video mashup of sorts, for “Destroy the Dancefloor.” Set to the backdrop of the vampiric thriller The Lost Boys, Kline creates an audial thriller of his own, which you can download here free of charge.

“Vindicate.” The latest video release from Vancouver pop-rock syndicate The Shrugs.

Unstoppable, undeniable, and absolutely remarkable are three phrases that barely scratch the surface with the dark pop-rockers known as The Shrugs. Their high-energy music layered with thoughtful lyrics and candy-coated vocals will pull you into a head-over-heels romance with this young band from Vancouver, BC Canada.

Capturing a sound that echos of the deep shadows of BC’s coastal waters, and the gritty streets of the Vancouver, The Shrugs perform music that twists the White Stripes up with songs that would put No Doubt to shame. Caitlin Connelly’s vocals soar over the Brandon Johnas’s guitar in every song, while Stephanie Cole on bass drives the listener to crave more of this quartet’s unique sound. – exert from website

It’s quite impossible to come to any conclusion that conflicts with the aforementioned description of The Shrugs. Their rugged, yet refined style jumps off the page and is only shadowed by their energy. “Vindicate” highlights Connelly’s soaring vocals and the group’s dark pop-rock style. The release of “Vindicated” is appropriate timed with the soon-release of their second EP, which will debut in July. Don’t take my word for it. Check it out, and make sure hop over to their facebook page to show them some love when you finished.
