After dominating the Spotify charts earlier this year and gathering over 2 million streams with ‘My Name’, a collaboration between Raven & Kreyn featuring vocals of renowned sing-songerwirter BISHØP, Schunk is ready to reign the charts once again with ‘Light Up’ – on Berlin-based Embassey One (Robyn, Booka Shade, Monolink).
Constantly pushing the boundaries of music production, Maxim Schunk combines his extensive musical background with the latest tricks of the trade, “I always try to explore new dimensions for my music. To me, differentiation is crucial, so I like to play around with new techniques in order to meet my style. However, in the end, I really just need to feel the song’s vibe.” When crafting his pieces, Maxim prefers to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, “I like to define my sound as fresh and energising but inspiring at the same time. I want my songs to go deeper but still retain the fun part of electronic music. My sound should stick in your head and be there for every condition of life.”
Just as his passion for travel, Maxim Schunk takes in his surroundings with open eyes and ears, absorbing every last drop of detail. These captured moments begin to shift and take form as they are masterfully converted into a staggering mood that can be anticipated from headphones to open-airs, “In my opinion, the crowd is the main factor in the nightlife experience. I just love it when people are waving their hands up in the air and have a good time. They forget all of their sorrows and just live in the moment. I really like electronic festivals. The moment when the fire show starts on stage and people scream and jump in harmony. It always gives me goosebumps.“
Now presenting his new cut ‘Light Up’, the single clearly underlines Maxim Schunk’s continued rise up the global ranks & is a record with all the hallmarks of a future sure-fire player.
