Max Styler Defies Expectations On “Feel It” EP

Max Styler steps out of the darkness and embraces a bright and vivid take on dance music via his Feel It EP. Opening with the title track, Styler utilizes deep bass tones, vocoded vocals and anthemic turns to create an undeniable house burner. Australian indie rock band The Griswolds then join Styler on a vivacious piano house and indie pop fusion “Light Me Up.” Sandwiched between deep club grooves “Motion” and “On My Mind,” Styler leaves his production open for singer / songwriter Nevve’s cushiony vocals to ride effortlessly on “Bulletproof.” The record closes with bouncy future house number “All Love Your Love,” capturing the vibe with bright bright synths and hooky vocals.

“The Feel It EP is a collection of records I wrote in the past year as my sound grew and evolved to what you hear today,” states Styler. “It’s been a growth period for me as both an artist and producer, and I’m so excited to share this project with you all.”

Throughout 2018, Styler rolled out songs from his Feel It EP, allowing fans a glimpse into his new sound. Singles “All Your love,” “Light Me Up,” “On My Mind” and “Feel It,” collectively saw support from the likes of Alison Wonderland, Oliver HeldensDavid GuettaHardwellAfrojack and MorganPage. The EP’s title track also became Styler’s best performing record at radio to date, peaking at #24 on Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart and earning regular rotation at key dance radio platforms such as iHeartRadio’s Evolution and SiriusXM’s BPM.  Outside of his own original material, Styler also lent his production touch to a collaborative remix (with TWERL) of Diplo and Lil Xan’s “Color Blind.”  Although Styler focused primarily on music production this year, he stepped out to play at Dim Mak Neighborhood shows in Brooklyn and Chicago, as well as a massive Coachella guest performance alongside his “Shakalaka” collaborators Steve AokiDeorro and MAKJ. Closing out 2018 with his first ever Diplo & Friends guest mix, his Feel It EP and a clear focus on his new sound, Styler is moving into the new year with a bold outlook..
