Maceo Plex & AVNU have teamed up for ‘Clickbait (This Ain’t Hollywood)’, the standout new single from Maceo Plex’s forthcoming album.

Maceo Plex continues to be one of electronic music’s most recognisable names. He has fomented his own uniquely interplanetary take on forward-thinking, melodic techno and deep house whilst being the driving force behind Lone Romantic and Ellum Audio. As a DJ, he continues to headline the world’s leading festivals and clubs year in, year out. AVNU is one of Maceo Plex’s most hotly-tipped new acts of recent years, based on the East Coast of Scotland. Last May, he served up his adventurous album ‘Tough To Love But Worth The Effort’ on Ellum, which was the product of two decades immersed in all genres of music and was a storytelling mix of house, electro, synth, techno and pop.

The superb ‘Clickbait (This Ain’t Hollywood)’ channels Daft Punk into a contemporary slice of robot techno funk. It’s a monster of a track that builds on irresistibly slinky drums with widescreen synths and a chugging bassline that sweeps you up, up, and away to the stars. The topical lyrics aim to highlight the disparities between social media influencer lifestyles and the realities of everyday life in mainstream Hollywood and modern-day society in general.

This one has got summer anthem written all over it, such is its universal charm.
