High Maintenance - Never Enough EP [APORN025]
One of the biggest years yet for Shimon’s Audioporn imprint, 2012 has shown exactly why Audioporn has become synonymous for putting out the most creative, genre blurring bass music. Huge releases from renowned artists such as Hybrid Minds and Xilent as well as new exciting acts such as Mediks, Playma, Dilemn and Tha New Team have seen Audioporn strengthen its reputation for delivering cutting edge music, regardless of genre or tempo.
After signing to Audioporn last year, High Maintenance has wasted no time making a name for himself, with massive reworking’s of Ed Rush and Tali’s ‘Dark Days’, DisasZt’s ‘Try Me Again’, and Camo & Krooked’s ‘Watch It Burn’ from their ‘Between The Lines’ album. Now following his breakthrough debut ‘With You’ and this year’s stellar ‘Don’t Lose It EP’ on DisasZt’s Mainframe Recordings, High Maintenance steps once again up for another dose of precision crafted bass music.
