Max Sedgley steps back into the fray with a brand new album â€œSuddenly Everythingâ€ â€“ a killer first single â€œSomething Specialâ€, a host of admiring DJâ€™s and a feeling that the time is right.
Max Sedgleyâ€™s name is eponymous with his worldwide hit â€œHappyâ€.
A tune so gargantuan it was used as the theme tune for BBCâ€™s coverage of the last world cup and which has helped sell the idea of good times to a generation of clued-up clubbers and big name brands most notably Bacardi who used the track for a worldwide campaign.
On the back of that single Max recorded an album for Rob Da Bankâ€™s Sunday Best label and toured the world with his band The Shoots â€“ living the high life as a festival bill topper.
Forward-Wind to Spring 2010 â€“ Maxâ€™s new album is ready â€“ signed to Jalapeno and already causing a stir in the shape of the first single â€œSomething Specialâ€ â€“ a track which has been getting love from the old school and the new with supporters including Danny Tenaglia, Tom Middleton, Aeroplane, Crazy P and Mark Knight.
Max also had his mind on a couple of guest vocalists who had impressed him over the previous year.
Having already remixed one of their previous singles, Max knew all about NYC rappers QNC (Q Ball & Curt Cazal) who were duly contacted and drafted in.
Next on the list was breakthrough toaster Tor – a UK rapper with one of the most distinctive voices around and the perfect person to drop the vocals on â€œSound Boyâ€.
