In celebration of his recent release with Louisahhh - 'RAAR004' on their own imprint RAAR (check it out here), we asked Maelstrom to put together a playlist packed full of his favourite afterparty tracks.
Here's what he had to say on her playlist and listen to it below.
"Lately my afterparties have often been held on my own in airports or trains, as I’ve been playing longer and longer sets and end up closing the clubs and going straight to the airport to catch an early flight. when that happens, I’m unable to read or do anything because my brain is fried by all the music and the noise from the night, and I also develop a deep hatred for the human kind, specially when I’m stuck in a boarding room with screaming kids and anxious seniors. the only way to wash away all the beats, the feedback noise from the night, and reconcile myself with humanity is usually to listen to music with human voices. I guess it could also work at an actual afterparty, but maybe not the kind where people dance around the pool - more like the smoking opium on a rug kind."
