This release is full of superb Soul, Funk and Disco-infused vibes translated into soulful, uplifting House Music and will put you in the mood for more to follow from him soon.
Swiss born Vietnamese MAQman’s musical career started as a keyboard player in the late 90ies and he soon established himself as a fine producer. After first down-tempo releases his love for soulful House Music soon prevailed and with Joseph Junior he found the perfect singer to round of his musical visions. In 2011 the team released to great success their first single titled “I Don’t See Love” on GOGO Music and since then became an integral part of the label’s artist roaster.
Joseph Junior can be heard on 3 of the tunes on this EP. Staying in one of the world’s most inspiring towns which is London he performed at legendary venues like Jazz Café and worked with industry legends like Omar, Roachford or Gwen McCrae. In 2017 he collaborated with Sir LSG on his celebrated long-player “Moving Circles”, too, for which he contributed the deeply spiritual lyrics and vocals for “Solitude Child”.
GOGO Music proudly presents this EP containing new versions of the ever popular “I Don’t See Love”, which got a rare 10 out of 10 mark in Chicago’s 5 Magazine, “Chains”, which was released in 2010 and now will get its deserved full attention and “No Better Love”, which was a Traxsource Top 10 success in 2012. Rounding off this release is MAQman’s remix of “Our Love Is A Star” by Ralf GUM featuring Jocelyn Mathieu which is taken from Ralf’s album “In My City”.
