Paul Mayson is making an impressive return to Don Diablo’s HEXAGON label with the truly mesmerizing ‘Run EP’. Expect a four-stage trip to indiepop grounds, featuring wonderful 80s influences, contemporary electronics and simply damn good songwriting.
Armed with a genre-crossing new sound that separates him from other artists, Paul Mayson has catapulted himself into the limelight as one of the most promising and refreshing upcoming electronic acts in dance music worldwide.
” Launching my first four-song EP is a big step for me. My aim was to really try to push boundaries with these records. The songs are a combination of electronic production and strong indie influences. Being able to fully utilise my background of both house music production as well as instrument playing is what made the whole process of this EP so exciting.
It took quite a lot of months of writing sessions out here in Amsterdam as well as in LA where I’ve been recording a lot. The process was all about doing something different and implementing a lot of live elements into the songs, as well as working with some talented featuring artists who have their roots in genres that are far away from electronic music.” – Paul Mayson
Being a true tastemaker of the upcoming generation of electronic artists, the young producer and multi-instrumentalist is releasing innovative and organic songs (which he often labels as ‘indie house’) on the most influential record labels and platforms in the world (HEXAGON, Spinnin’ Records, Armada Music, Proximity).
” Every now and then I want to switch thing up on my HEXAGON label. In order to move forward we have to experiment and be open to all types of music. This Paul Mayson EP contains four tracks that are all amazing in their own right so I am very excited to release these songs on my label. My suggestion is to add this EP to your Spotify playlist, wait till it’s midnight then get in your car, crank the volume up on your car speakers and enjoy the ride! ” – Don Diablo
Bridging the gap between electronic production and indie/pop, he kickstarted his career with the release of “Pray“, a collaboration featuring the renowned electronic pop-act Far East Movement. This was followed up with several headstrong club tunes, including this year’s HEXAGON release “Paralyzed“, featuring John Quarles.
Released on HEXAGON, “Run EP” is now available to download on Beatport.
