Techno fans rejoice – Maceo Plex has just announced a new album. The Barcelona, Spain-based U.S. transplant has not released a full-length studio album since 2011, but revealed that Solar, an effort of his newborn son’s namesake, will be out in October.
In addition to the new album, which will be released through his own Ellum imprint, Maceo Plex will release a 12″ on an earlier date.
“This release is some music taken from my upcoming album Solar, named after our newborn baby of the same name,” he said in a release. “It is due out in October. ‘Wash Away My Tears (12 inch mix)’ is a more DJ friendly version of the original on the album. ‘Solar Detroit’ was written when I took little baby Solar to Detroit in May.”
As Maceo Plex has become one of the leading names in contemporary techno over the past few years, his upcoming releases will serve to ignite the underground, where the tracks will likely be most celebrated. Seeing as how we’re certainly no strangers to techno, we’ll be awaiting it with baited breath as well.
