Max Rad takes it up a notch with his new EP Getting Better — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The rising producer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is set to captivate listeners with his latest release. Fusing warm electronics with soulful vocals and deeply emotional lyricism, Max Rad delivers a self-reflective and heartfelt collection of tracks that resonate with authenticity and vulnerability. The new project spreads its influences from House to Breakbeat, taking the same aesthetic of high energy, soaring instrumentals and catchy vocal lines. Drums are well-produced, with clean kicks and excitable tops constantly driving the momentum. Max’s work with synths shows both his talent and experience, with each track’s sound choices embodying the vibe and pushing it further.
The EP is a continuation of the themes explored in Max Rad’s acclaimed debut album Joy Wonder, showcasing his growth and artistic evolution. Inspired by dance music and the communal experience of live performances, Max Rad’s self-produced tracks create a captivating sonic landscape that brings people together, offering solace, and exploring the complexities of human relationships.
“This self-produced EP feels like a culmination of the work explored in Joy Wonder,” Max Rad shares. “Inspired by a new city — Bristol — new collaborators, and real-life experiences, these tracks were born. I wanted to create big sounds that bring people together, help them figure out their lives, and ultimately make them feel happier.”
Max Rad’s previous releases, including the funk-fueled Where Are We Now? and the evocative double EP Save Me From Myself, have garnered widespread acclaim and support across radio stations and the blogosphere. With a sold-out show history and notable festival appearances across the U.K. and Europe, Max Rad continues to establish himself as a standout talent in the U.K. electronic music scene. His debut album Joy Wonder dropped in February 2023 on his own label Three Sign.
