whoism: Maurice Fulton

Whoism – the first in a series of posts dedicated to the (maybe relatively unsung) musical heroes that made us at Infinite State Machine who were are today. A quick five or so tracks per post: a classic, a lesser known tune, a recent release, etc.

Sometimes it feels like people don’t really talk about Maurice Fulton. Is it (somehow paradoxically?) because he’s too prolific? It’s hard to keep track of everything he does. Is it because he’s too weird? Maybe, but the vast majority of his tracks are incredibly danceable. Is it because he’s kind of ass at promoting himself, because he’s humble as? Probably. Is it because his tracks are often so surprising, so gat damn funky, that most DJs want to keep them as secret as possible for as long as possible? This must be it.

    His remix of ‘Love Endeavour’ too!

    And his DJ Nori remix!

  2. frank says:

    purposefully left out Love Endeavour because it’s so similar to All Woman. 😉

    never heard the DJ Nori thing, do you mean this? http://www.discogs.com/DJ-Nori-We-Dont-Know-Ep/release/4948350

    The DJ Nori is epic. Also, the new BOOF album – how could you leave that out, Frank? How?

    Like Dean says, all the Boof albums are so fucking tight. not to be taken as single tracks each album flows together in such a masterful way.

    LOve Endeavour Remix is his career highlight for me. I picked that up on release for the flip side mixes. Had no idea what a stunner I had luckily stumbled onto with Maurice’s mix.
