Max Abysmal at Dekmantel Selectors 2018

The Australian digger shows us what warm-up duties are really about at this years Dekmantel Selectors.

Dek­man­tel has been tak­ing the elec­tron­ic music scene by storm these past few years with the expan­sion of their beloved fes­ti­val over sev­er­al con­ti­nents. Their loca­tions stretch as far and wide as Tokyo and São Paulo but one of their most talked about get-togeth­ers, Dek­man­tel Selec­tors, falls on the sun­ny sum­mer beach­es of Tis­no, Croa­t­ia. After a num­ber of mem­o­rable appear­ances for Dek­man­tel, most notably on their Boil­er Room stage in Ams­ter­dam, Max Abysmal was back with the crew again for anoth­er week­end of good music and good times. 

Ear­ly Sun­day Max took to the beach stage for a 3‑hour jour­ney that would shake off the hang­overs and get peo­ple ready for a day of danc­ing. The set starts with an array of hor­i­zon­tal­ly-inclined selec­tions as he set­tles you in with ease. Warm sound­scapes, ambi­ent tex­tures, organ­ic ele­ments and slow­ly unwind­ing melodies make up the first two hours induc­ing relax­ation and well-being. As we reach the final 60 min­utes rhythm based tracks pour in slow­ly rais­ing puls­es with a num­ber of obscure down­tem­po offer­ings leav­ing the pic­turesque beach stage warmed up like a true pro­fes­sion­al. Lock into this one below when you’re look­ing for a peace­ful moment in your day!
