The problem with excelling at something, be it music, art or designing garden gnomes, is maintaining the levels you’ve set for yourself. This is the position producer Andrew Field-Pickering finds himself in. Under the Maxmillion Dunbar guise, he’s spent the last few years perfecting a glistening, synth-laden sound that’s simultaneously gorgeously optimistic and strangely melancholic. After first impressing with a series of electronica experiments on Ramp, he’s shown himself to be a rather accomplished maker of vintage sounding, near kaleidoscopic dancefloor tracks that sit somewhere between woozy nu-disco, futuristic Balaearica and spacey deep house. “Polo”, in particular – a track so good it was re-released by Live At Robert Johnson earlier this year – was near perfect; a modern-day electronic classic that’s almost guaranteed to have the hairs on the back of your neck straining to keep upright.
We’re big fans of People’s Potential Unlimited at Juno Plus. The Washington DC based label overseen by dedicated crate digger Andrew Morgan pretty much stands alone in its remit to uncover, remaster and reissue obscure private press and rare 80’s American boogie and disco funk. Invariably there is always an interesting and historically relevant story to match the primitive yet infectious bump of the music.
