Located deep within the circuitry of a mechanical alien host known as Maetrik you will find a complex web of synaptic disbursements resembling what could be called a soul. And this soul which drives it’s host and manipulates it’s every move is finally beginning to emerge. Its name is Maceo Plex. The emergence of such an entity has been the result of a need for feeling, a need for interplanetary funk. We as humans consider this need a feeling, a feeling rooted in emotion, and emotion being the very basis of humanity. Maceo Plex is on a quest to fulfill his need to inject feeling and funk into the world, and he's already proving to be quite productive. With deep and funky works of audible engineering for the label Crosstown Rebels in the form of a full-length album titled “LifeIndex”, a night with Maceo Plex will be one of galactic proportions.
At the start...Maceo was intrigued by a pair of circular shaped objects designed for holding discs created from vinyl that produce vibrations resulting in sound and music. Soon he began conjuring up mixes of techno, electro, and house music that quickly gained him popularity within the early 90s rave culture.
After many years of prolific works on such labels as Treibsto , Dumb Unit, Cocoon, Audiomatique, Modern Love, Mothership, to name a few...Maceo aka Maetrik travelled the world playing in some of the best clubs

The sunny and relaxed atmosphere has been quite useful to Maceo in his lengthy inward journey that is very apparent in his music, and his newest musical output reflects his radiation in a variety of beautiful colors. In late 2010, Maceo’s single “Vibe Your Love” was released on the very forward thinking label Crosstown Rebels and includes a hefty funk remix treatment by Zev of the Wolf & Lamb clan. 2011 kicked off with the full-length debut album aptly titled “Life Index” which chronicles Maceo’s life long transformation into the soulful ball of energy he is today. Once experienced, the album will make it abundantly clear the level of versatility Maceo Plex possesses among his many auditory shells. And the world will understand Maceo’s pristine vision of house music from beyond…
