Electro revolutionary Maxx Klaxon is taking his music to the masses! Based at a secure, undisclosed location in Brooklyn, NY, this Miami native combines sensual synths, robotic vocoders, and hard beats with a satirical take on politics and culture. On his new EP, PARANOID STYLE, Maxx has processed the audiovisual stimuli of his youth -- analog electronica, sci-fi TV, and the clatter of drum machines -- into a sharp and sweet pop synthesis. He's out to liberate (or dominate?) the globe via sonic and rhythmic mind control. These tracks draw on the precision of Kraftwerk, the wit and style of the Pet Shop Boys, and the 21st-century electro edge of Adult. And Ladytron. To that mix he adds Italo-disco grace notes, and a jolt of electro-bass bounce, to keep the people moving. The result is clever, seductive indie pop with an electro edge. PARANOID STYLE includes Maxx's cover of Iron Maiden's 'Die With Your Boots On' (as featured on the sensational POWERSLAVES compilation), and 'Internationale 2000' (included on the MIAMI RESISTANCE: VOLUME I compilation). 'Clips from G.W. Bush's 'War on Terror' speech added to the throb of 'Die With Your Boots On' unveil timely wisdom in 20-year-old lyrics.' --Ethan Swan, The Portland Mercury 'Maxx Klaxon's cabaret-esque cover of 'Die With Your Boots On' gets girls to take out the trash, and rub it all over their precious bodies. That's how awesome it is.' --Discogs.com 'Smart, dark electropop for the clash of civilizations.' --A.K.W. Geheimbundler.
