| 20 March 2013 | Reply


Los Angeles, CA – March 19, 2013 – Maximum Hedrum’s debut self titled full length album is out today via Spectrophonic Sound. The band’s 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.  Maximum Hedrum will make their network television debut tonight with performance on Last Call with Carson Daly airing at 135AM on NBC.

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.

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. From start to finish, the album is a genuine genre-melding ride.

Stay tuned for live dates to be announced in the coming weeks.

“Funk and dance collide on Sam Spiegel’s project Maximum Hedrum. Take a ride into this psychedelic melody and turn up the funk.” – VIBE

“This Maximum Hedrum project might just take us over the edge. The hybrid music mothership just landed.” – MTV Iggy

“The chemistry between Faltermeyer and Derrick Green is apparent and yet another nod to Spiegel’s production instincts, as this seemingly avant partnership has yielded something hard, fast and soulful.” – BuzzbandsLA

“So what really happens when worlds collide? Well, sometimes, damn good music rises from the collision. That’s the case with Maximum Hedrum, which brings together the “seemingly” disparate DJ Sam Spiegel of N.A.S.A. and Sepultura singer Derrick Green. Together, they make songs like you’ve never heard before. They’re strange, sexy, and slick. It’s as if funk got transmuted to the 22nd century with a dash of rock and electro thrown in for good measure. Maximum Hedrum stand alone in the most wild, weird, and wonderful way possible.” – ARTISTdirect
