Cristian Varela unleashes the outstanding album 'Max & Max' via Intec

Cristian Varela makes a welcome return to the seminal imprint Intec with his hugely anticipated album, ‘Max & Max' - it's his most accomplished work to date and takes a captivating journey through fifteen outstanding tracks encompassing; warm laid back moments, emotive soundscapes and funk-driven rhythms which simply ooze class.‘Max & Max is the fusion of different sounds, emotions and feelings from different periods of my life. This mixture, and the combination of ways I’ve created my music over the last few years, has made in my opinion, a complete, dynamic and emotional album,’ says Cristian The talented Madrid DJ/producer has been at the forefront of the Spanish techno scene for over 15 years with his unique brand of melodic dancefloor-ready productions and energetic performances at Intec’s sell-out Off-Sonar party at Under Club (Barcelona) and at Carl Cox’s legendary Revolution party at Space Ibiza. The album's opener ‘Caramba’ sets the pace of inspiring organic percussion sounds to kick things off and get us in the mood for the drum percussive beats, female vocal and emotive effects of ‘Great’. The album continues by showcasing an assortment of tech house and techno gems such as ‘Blanky,’ which utilises varied synth lines to devastating effect, the rolling bass and amazing male vocal lead in ‘San Francisco’ and the laid back more soulful groove of ‘Jazzy Freedom’. Other highlights include ‘Penthouse’, which gives a more female vocal approach with’‹ an energetic soundscape feel, the heads down techno of ‘Destination and the hypnotic ‘Alarm Waves’ with its amazing female spoken vocal and bleeps. The album concludes with the solid beats and 90s-esque rave chord and acid progression of ‘Human’ to take things up a notch and lead us nicely into the Samba-style Techno groove of ‘Tiger’ and the album’s final track ‘Fascinator’. Both ‘Caramba’ and ‘Love Perc’ were also released as singles earlier this year, as a precursor to this album, to much acclaim and featured remixes from Jon Rundell and Boris. All in all, ‘Max & Max’ is a very impressive and accomplished album from one of dance music’s most dedicated techno stars. The album effortlessly flows from track-to-track and offers a vast array of variety, which highlights just what a versatile DJ/producer Cristian is.
