Maryland-based DJ/producer Maxmillion Dunbar has a new three-track 12" ready to drop on the Future Times label, called Max Trax For World Peace, and even though the smooth jam we have to share with you here won't be found on that release, it's still a fine example of the kinds of deeply soulful house music the record will offer. The artist completely takes out the rap vocal on his rework of "Ride" by Alabama hip-hop outfit Dirty, and leaves only the laid-back bass grooves, soft synth pads, guitar strums, chilled-out string melodies, and playfully off-handed mutterings of the background instrumental. It sounds awesome to begin with, though Maxmillion Dunbar takes it another step further—tossing in his own bubbly drum-machine patterns, and turning the whole thing into a definite dancefloor gem.
