Seminal electronic artist, DJ and producer Maceo Plex releases two new remixes of Faithless – ‘Insomnia’. The official remixes of the iconic ‘90s dance anthem are now available to stream and purchase via Ministry of Sound.
Originally released in 1995, ‘Insomnia’ has become one of Faithless’ most successful and much-loved tracks, still finding its way into the record boxes of DJs across the globe today.
Topping the UK Dance Chart and placing at number 3 in the UK Singles Chart following a re-release in ‘96, ‘Insomnia’ also soared to the top of Charts in Finland, Norway, and Switzerland, as well as the American and Canadian Dance Charts. Maceo Plex adds a brooding and driving undertone across both the Epic Mix and Dub Mix, culminating in a powerful new direction to the original.
‘Insomnia’ is Maceo Plex’s second official remix for Faithless, which follows his 2020 rework of Synthesizer (feat. Nathan Ball), taken from their long-awaited seventh studio album, All Blessed.
“Maceo delivers a brooding summer sizzler perfectly distilling the moody vibe of our original, ready to detonate every dance floor – in – waiting, and boy have we been waiting!” – Sister Bliss, Faithless
The new remixes from Maceo Plex mark his return to Ministry of Sound, following the 2019 single, When the Lights Are Out which received an array of media support from the likes of Resident Advisor, Billboard, Mixmag, DJ Mag and more.
2020 saw Maceo Plex release Cinemax, a further single on Ministry of Sound which sampled Alice Russell and The Quantic Soul Orchestra’s Pushin’ On.
An artist who has crafted a remarkably impressive discography of productions, notably full of official remixes for artists including Coldcut, Röyksopp, GusGus, DJ T, Maribou State, Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction, Faithless, New Order, Chromatics and more, Maceo Plex is also the figurehead behind the underground label, Ellum Audio.
Having released four studio albums, mix compilations for London’s fabric and !K7’s DJ-Kicks series, along with productions under his Mariel Ito and Maetrik aliases, Maceo Plex has curated several BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix’s and graced the cover of many a magazine from Mixmag to DJ Mag.
