Maximum Success is the new single from André Uhl’s upcoming album Relax and Implode, to be released on Berlin-based label Martin Hossbach on October 16th 2020. The song deals with the hunger for success, the feeling of being competitive, and the need for continuous self-improvement. You try your best but you always want more. You know it’s never going to be enough. But that’s okay: It’s a good way to keep yourself busy.
Maximum Success sounds determined, hectic, and impetuous. The song moves fast with an arpeggio synthesizer line, a catchy melody, and a hypnotic rhythm. And right when you think you’re reaching the home stretch the music stops, making you want to start again.
André Uhl released his first album I hope the roof flies off, and I get sucked up into space. in 2017 on Neofakt. He holds a master’s degree in futures studies and works as a futures researcher during the day – a fact that reflects in his compositions and leaves traces in his sound: tales of the hazy past and the twilight of the future.
