ABSOLUTE. has released his latest EP via Chrissy’s new label, Maximum Airtime..

‘Garage Queen EP’ is a truly genre-hopping affair, clinging onto sounds of summer with queer-rave-meets-UKG energy. Think warped basslines, glittering keys and truly euphoric breakdowns, in true ABSOLUTE. style.

To add to its ferocity, the East Londoner has drafted in Chicago’s Shaun J. Wright on remix duties to truly cement the record as a rave-ready offering.

“I’ve loved Chrissy for such a long time so when he mentioned his new label, I knew I had to be a part of it,” ABSOLUTE. tells Mixmag. “I’ve been blasting the tunes from the ‘Garage Queen EP’ all festival season too, verrrry excited that they’re final out in the world.”

“ABSOLUTE. sent me these UK-garage-meets-rave tracks and I absolutely loved them!” labelhead Chrissy continues. “I thought they were the perfect vibe I’m trying to hit with this new label: weighty dancefloor bangers with a fun attitude and memorable melodies.

“I really want to use Maximum Airtime as a DIY platform to bridge different scenes and cities and communities, so we got Shaun J Wright from SmartBar to whip up a jackin’ Chicago house remix. I think the entire EP is amazing and I’m so proud to have the chance to release it.”
