Maxxi & Zeus

American Dreamer/MZ Medley

International Feel

More cinematic touches from the duo that brought us one of the highlights of 2008, 'Silent Movie', by Quiet Village. Here, QV adopt their alternate production moniker, Maxxi & Zeus, for this, their second single release on International Feel. Dennis Hopper tribute, 'American Dreamer', slips wry, counter-cultural references into gaseous ambience; distant, rhythmical suggestion and other exotic nuances - offset by a subtle, underlying malevolence in the style of a David Lynch soundtrack. 'MZ Medley', is an incendiary, Steinski-style disco-medley, with chunky edits that replicate those sought-after, old-skool cut n' paste bootlegs. A must for the collection.
