Brazilian DJ/producer Maz teamed up with his fellow Brazilian Antdot for their new single “Sky Father” with Beacon Bloom which is out now via their own label Dawn Patrol Records. It also coincides with a huge career landmark for Maz in that he has just signed with the Wasserman booking agency, placing himself in the excellent company of 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 prestigious and world’s biggest agency. “Sky Father” itself represents both artists’ dynamic styles, mixing euphonious melodies with a progressive house and techno influence for a track that balances its emotive lyrics and vocals with a deeply groovy sonic landscape. It’s the perfect track for those moments on the dance floor where everyone wants to sing along. Read on for more on Maz‘s inspiration behind the track and his massive signing with Wasserman:
“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.” – Maz about “Sky Father“
“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.” – Maz about signing to Wasserman
