Makk is becoming one of the hottest names in Germany and he is slowly but surely getting his name recognized here in the States. What does that mean to us? It means that this German producer has a release that will determine if he’s here to stay and be a household name. Midlife Dreams is his newest EP that brings an ethereal mix of Pop, Electro, Dance, and other genres that could be left to our interpretation. The energy, the emotions, the charisma of Makk really shines through this album and lets his creativity stand out among others.
For “Midlife Dreams”, Makk dusted off his old collection of classic synths such as Yamaha VSS-30, Tiracon 6V and Solina String Ensemble. These tracks and their visuals breathe nostalgia and a strange, naive optimism and affirmation. They ask questions about chasing one’s dream, reevaluating one’s goals and about the fateful turning points in a person’s life or whether it must be seen as merely a succession of coalescing coincidences.
If you want just a snippet of what is yet to come, be sure to follow the link to one of his singles off the EP, “On and On”. This track really was a great choice to tease us that Makk can really bring it to the table, can really walk his talk. Makk leaves nothing to debate about his EP and wants us to know that it’s only a matter of time before we are all chanting his name.
