In conjunction with the announcement, HOLY SHIP!!! performer Maceo Plex has made available a rare and exclusive mix for what he calls the “Holiest of Vessels!” Says Plex about the mix, “Located deep within the circuitry of a mechanical alien host known as Maetrik you will find a complex web of synaptic dispersements resembling what could be called a soul. And this soul which drives it’s host and manipulates it’s every move is finally beginning to emerge. Its name is Maceo Plex. The emergence of such an entity has been the result of a need for feeling, a need for interplanetary funk. We as humans consider this need a feeling, a feeling rooted in emotion, and emotion being the very basis of humanity.”
