BIOGRAPHY

Maeve is a label owned and run by three close friends, Mano Le Tough, Baikal & The Drifter. Born from a shared desire to release special dance-floor orientated electronic music, Maeve has become universally popular and a stamp of quality in todays House and Techno spheres. Now onto their eighth release, the label has slowly cultivated a unique sound that’s based on releasing deep, emotive, hypnotic records.

The label has released music from Mano Le Tough, Baikal, The Drifter, Ripperton, Dixon, Matthew Dekay, Aera and most recently Ed Davenport since its birth in 2012. With a strong release schedule for 2016 planned the three founders continue to tour the world, often playing together to bring the magic of their label showcases to clubs like Panorama Bar (Berlin), Warung (Brazil), Sub Club (Glasgow) and The Robert Johnson (Offenbach).

NEWS

Mano Le Tough is set to release his second 12″ on Maeve May 14th.

Big words from the small mouth arrives on the A side of Maeve 11 with quite the clatter. Searing synth jams scatter over a brooding kick/sub bass combo. The sharp crisp percussion drives the track forward all the time, while various bleets, squeals and swells develop throughout giving the track a raw rave vibe.

Arganol on the flip is a trippy affair. Touching 9 mins long, this track feels like Mano Le Tough right from the outset, patient in its approach whilst slowly telling the listener its story. The narrative unravels through woozy melodies and melancholic cameos culminating in a burst of movement and energy perfect for the wee hours of a dancefloor.
