"His story is a classic one of hard work and persistence, and his future in this industry is extremely bright" – LA Weekly
Dim Mak recruits Jameston Thieves, Awoltalk, and Flapo for a remix package tackling standout cuts "Gold" and "Deep Dreams" from Max Styler's acclaimed debut LP Heartache, which remains Styler's most complex and emotional piece of work. While future bass melodies "Gold" with Devault (feat. Luciana) and "Deep Dreams" (feat. Karra) stand out for their clean synths, exquisite vocals, and riveting drops, the album as a whole showcases Syler's knack for sultry electronic sounds and pristine melodies via 9 innovative tracks. Heartache garnered support from Steve Aoki, Borgeous, Cedric Gervais, Cash Cash, and Boehm, as well as accolades from several leading music publications. Insomniac summed up the release as an album that "defies genre classification and puts Styler in a league of select artists who have both mass commercial appeal and significant underground clout."
In February 2017, Styler followed the album with a remix package of the title track, featuring reworks from SMLE, MERCE, and Taiki Nulight. His most recent Dim Mak release was a powerful future bass collaboration with MAKJ titled "Knock Me Down (feat. Elayna Boynton)." With the single crossing 1M online streams to date, the track truly showcases the growth Max has experience over the past year, as well as his signature sultry future bass sound.
