Multi-instrumentalist and producer MAYN drops escapist offering “Onda,” an emotive electronic production which pulls on his trademark textured, surreal sound by bringing an expansive tapestry together with a layer of soothing synths.
Playful and calming in equal parts, the track traces the vibrance of Mexico City, where MAYN found solace away from Los Angeles during the pandemic. With soaring flourishes and rich echoing beats, the track comes to life as “an electronic love letter” to the city as he invites us to escape into the positive energy he channels in his intricate sound.
Tapping into his skills as a visual artist to imagine a layered sonic world, which provides us a retreat from reality, “Onda” is crafted with both explorative adventures and lulling calm in mind, as dark touches of his signature electronic arrangement give way to ethereal touches of the keys.
LA-based Charlie Maynard has built an artistic reputation as MAYN, framed by storytelling and nostalgia as his largely instrumental tracks manage to weave rich tales that shine through every note of his lush sound – “Onda” which pulls us into the bright, homely energy of Mexico City is no different.
