With decades of performance experience between them, producers/DJs Sebastian “Sebi” Wolters and Nick Hill, collectively known as Maximono, have played thousands of shows together over the years. Still, their first performance on the EDC stage last year was a different beast altogether. Wolters and Hill, who are also co-owners of the buzzing This Ain’t Bristol imprint, twice blessed the stage with their deep and dirty house beats on night three of EDC Las Vegas 2016. Their unique adventure took them from the enormous energy of cosmicMEADOW to a more intimate b2b set with homie Billy Kenny at the Smirnoff House.
As they relive their debut Under the Electric Sky, the men behind Maximono chat about their double duty onstage and the transition from the big stage to the small decks in one jam-packed night.
Having experienced EDC alongside your best friends and label mates, what would you say is your biggest takeaway from the festival?
Sebi: There’s no room for genre pigeonholes or bad attitudes. Electronic music, throughout all genres, is great as it is in all its colorful aspects. There’s room for every single style and scene, and there’s even more space for new genres to be discovered and created. The attention and enthusiasm is clearly out there.
