Fellow Belgian producer, Aeroplane, shows just why he's one of the most in demand producers around at the moment, delivering a remix that floats from the speakers, expertly capturing the warmth inherent in the original.

Riding high on the back of acclaimed remixes for T.E.E.D. and Disclosure, London duo Waze & Odyssey inject their trademark house/garage bump n' grind into the track, whilst up & coming UK producers Aashton & Swift provide a sophisticated remix whose subtle dynamics, synths and piano are sure to soundtrack suns both setting and rising throughout 2013.

Finally Get Physical's own David Keno and Fabio Giannelli each retool the track for dark Berlin dancefloors. David’s percussive remix, adds a note of urgency to the original's laidback command to get 'Down to the Dancefloor', whilst Fabio swathes his remix in sepulchral synths, reverb and delay to create a disorientating mix perfect for losing yourself to in the smoke and lights of a club.


"We are the music that we create" and this has never been more true than with "Sunset", Compuphonic, alias Maxime Firket’s new maxi single on the prestigious Berlin ‘Get Physical’ label in anticipation of his debut album in 2013. For the occasion Maxime got together with American soul singer/violinist Marques Toliver (Bella Union, Bat For Lashes, Grizzly Bear, Holly Miranda, Mechanical Bride), to create a piece of hedonistic house that is entirely characteristic of his style. Spontaneous, positive, natural, open to large spaces, ambitious but always accessible. "All these elements are the common denominator of my music", explains Maxime, "In my productions, I naturally search for originality, but also simplicity, efficiency, emotion and some sort of positive melancholy."

Born in 1983 in Liège, Belgium, Maxime Firket grew up surrounded by music. He studied music theory and classical music at the Academy and did not choose the easy route by opting to study the cello. "A demanding and monodic instrument which forces you to find the right sound and the right note to make yourself heard. My cello background is still useful to me today." As an adolescent, he dreamt of playing in a rock group, but also discovered Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Front 242 and Detroit techno. After having created his own studio and put together a few mixes on a Roland Compuphonic synthesiser (yes, that’s where the name comes from...), Maxime soon found himself behind the decks at Dirty Dancing nights in Brussels . In 2006, his reputation exploded on the dance floor with the groovy "Emotion", produced in collaboration with Tiga and released on his label ‘Turbo’.

Maxime has his finger in lots of different pies and is equally at ease at festivals as in the studio. In addition, Compuphonic has done different remixes for Crystal Fighters, Martin Solveig, The Presets and dEUS which are played by the crème de la crème. It’s in the Vervier countryside, in Theux, that Maxime heads up the Union Match label. The label produces his music along with that of Fabrice Lig, Spirit Catcher, Kolombo, and Ante Perry. His mind is constantly roaming but he has his head firmly screwed on, Maxime Friket is guided by the same calm force which characterises his music. And the trip is far from over...
