Planet MU ZIQ283 OPTIMUM 'Max Power'

Post by optimum » Thu Jul 29, 2010 4:01 pm

*Posted in House, but I feel they can easily be played in Dubstep/140 sets too, Max Power and Crash are 135bpm and have big subs 8)

Check out my debut solo proper out in September on Planet Mu, pre-orders available.

Thanks to Planet Mu and Bok Bok, GIRL UNIT, Brenmar, Ikonika, Pariah, Ben UFO, Braiden, Jackmaster, Illum Sphere et al for playing it out!

Also keep an eye out for Hum + Buzz Records coming very soon...
