Brazilian DJ/producer Maz has joined forces with fellow Brazilian Antdot and Beacon Bloom to release their new single ‘Sky Father’ via their own label, Dawn Patrol Records. The release coincides with a major career milestone for Maz, as he has recently signed with the Wasserman booking agency, joining the ranks of esteemed artists such as Ben UFO, The Blessed Madonna, BLOND:ISH, DJ Seinfeld, Dom Dolla, Enrico Sangiuliano, Fred again…, Gui Boratto, Honey Dijon, Mind Against, ODESZA, and more with the world’s largest agency.
‘Sky Father’ showcases the dynamic styles of both artists, blending euphonious melodies with progressive house and techno influences to create a track that balances emotive lyrics and vocals with a deeply groovy sonic landscape. It’s the perfect track for those moments on the dance floor when everyone wants to sing along.
Maz touches upon the inspiration behind the track: "Although Antdot and I have already released other collaborations on the remix front, 'Sky Father' is the first-ever original track we worked together on. It came even before our remixes of 'Todo Homem' and 'Povoada,' which reached #1 on Beatport's Organic House and Afro House charts, so now it's becoming a very special follow-up. It took us a long time to release it because we care deeply about this record, and we invested a significant amount of time making adjustments to improve its sound."
Speaking about his massive signing with Wasserman, "I'm honored and grateful to have Wasserman working with us. I'm incredibly happy to know that such a talented and exceptional team believes in my career. They collaborate with many artists whom I'm a fan of, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of one of the biggest booking agencies in the world," tells Maz.
As Brazil’s hottest current export, Maz has been making waves in his home country’s electronic scene since 2015 before taking the global stage by storm. With a sophisticated sound that incorporates influences from multiple types of house and techno as well as vocal progressive, Maz has garnered support from some of the industry’s most respected names, including Diplo, Tiësto, Black Coffee, Rüfüs Du Sol, Keinemusik (&ME, Rampa, Adam Port), Michael Bibi, ANNA, Vintage Culture, Bonobo, Lee Burridge, Blond:ish, Matador, Stephan Jolk, Mochakk, Camelphat and Kolombo. His remix of Luediji Luna’s “Banho de Folhas” has amassed over 7 million streams and reached #1 on Beatport’s Afro House chart while his remix of Zeca Veloso’s ‘Todo Homem’ with Antdot also topped the Organic House chart at #1. The label Dawn Patrol run by Maz and Antdot has already gained incredible traction with its releases, setting Maz and Antdot up for a very bright future.
