Free Download – Maze Hill – Long Haul – LV (Hyperdub) Remix

Poejazzi Founder Joshua Idehen has hooked up with producer Andy Highmore, vocalist Holly Bestic to create new group Maze Hill. Maze Hill make gorgeous music that sounds kind of like Grizzly Bear/Beach House had a baby with someone with a lot of soul music stashed in their collection and they sort of rubbed off on each other. Like the bands such as those mentioned above Maze Hill’s music takes you somewhere “else”. It shows an attention to the microscopic in terms of capturing feelings and life scenarios but it evokes a picture that is more landscape than portrait as its sounds transport your imagination somewhere different every time. The result is something clearly unique and intriguing but more importantly instantly loveable and universally relatable. I’m going to have to quote music blog Put Me On It to fully capture the feeling of newness Maze Hill represents:

By rights the likes of Josephine and Tinashé (and many others you can find on this blog such as TawiahTanya AuclairJoshua IdehenL.A. Salaami, Rahel, Ghostpoet and ESKA), are a new generation of homegrown singer-songwriters who probably grew up with The Smiths and Joni Mitchell as much as King Sunny Ade or Michael Jackson” – Put Me On It

XLR8R are helping to launch their first single by offering a free Download  of the LV (Hyperdub) remix of first single Long Haul. Long Haul comes out Oct 29th.
