Maximum Hedrum’s unique electronic-funk hybrid features Sam Spiegel, the vocals of Derrick Green from the seminal heavy metal band Sepultura, and renowned German musician and producer Harold Faltermeyer, and examines the way our lives are changing through advancements in technology and the Internet.

Aside from his work producing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs Grammy® nominated sophomore album Show Your Bones and scoring countless films, documentaries, and commercials, in 2009 Spiegel founded N.A.S.A. (North America South America) whose landmark globetrotting debut LP, The Spirit of Apollo featured jaw-dropping collaborations from the likes of Kanye West, George Clinton, M.I.A., Tom Waits, RZA, David Byrne, and more. Spiegel also announced a film documentary of the same name which chronicles the making of the N.A.S.A. record and it’s numerous mind-blowing collaborations. The film will be released via digital retailers on March 26th. To watch the official trailer, click HERE.

After numerous experimental late night studio sessions with longtime friend and Sepultura vocalist Derrick Green in Sao Paolo, Brazil the Maximum Hedrum project was officially born. Heavily rooted in danceable electro-funk with classic synth textures, the album’s single “Keep In Touch” is a thumping psychedelic offering that features additional vocals from George Clinton. The massive R&B influenced “Robosexual” incorporates additional percussion from guest collaborator Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while the dreamy track “PHD” trance pulses with classic hip hop inspired beats. Famed producer Money Mark (Beastie Boys, Beck) also wrote and produced a few songs on the album. From start to finish, the album is a genuine genre-melding ride.

Maximum Hedrum recently wrapped a successful month long residency at Los Globos in Los Angeles and will appear at Austin’s South By Southwest in next month. Stay tuned for additional live date and festival appearances to be announced.
