Building on the buzzing momentum of Max Styler's debut album Heartache, Dim Mak recruits SMLE, MERCE, and Taiki Nulight for three scintillating remixes of the record's title track. Electronic duo SMLE goes the future bass route, lacing bright pads under Colt Matthews' dreamy vocals while MERCE follows suit, adding a radiant cinematic touch with soaring orchestral synths. Flexing his signature dark UKG sound, Brighton's Taiki Nulight brilliantly dunks the original into a bass house batter to close out the package with a bang.
2016 saw Max Styler transform from a budding producer to a full-fledged recording artist. After dropping multiple originals on Dim Mak throughout the year, such as “Fly” “Skyline” and “Show U How (feat. KARRA),” Styler turned his studio prowess up to 100 for his debut album Heartache. The record received praises from LA Weekly, Dancing Astronaut, and Insomniac, who lauded the title song as "a languid cut that’s dripping with sultry soul.” Heading full steam into 2017, Max is continuing his trajectory of success. In just under 3 weeks, his new Dirty Audio collaboration “Roller Coaster” (on Monstercat) has already amassed 650K+ collective online streams.
Providing Max three brand new reworkings are Dim Mak affiliates SMLE, MERCE, and Taiki Nulight. With several #1 Hype Machine tracks including edits of T-Pain’s “Buy You a Drink” and Alicia Keys’ “You Don’t Know My Name,” SMLE’s ability to craft infectious remixes has put them on the map as ones to watch in 2017. Joining them on the package is the sinister Taiki Nulight, who released his underground-leaning Sledge EP last year. Rounding out the release is rising Finnish producer MERCE. After releasing his rework of Watch The Duck’s “Making Luv to the Beat,” which racked up over 1M plays on soundcloud, MERCE was called on for official remix duties of R3LL & HVNS’ “All 2 U (feat. Kiff).” The stunning trap VIP has racked up close to 3M YouTube views on Trap Nation.
