“Depas strikes a fine balance between raw energy and subtle melodic hooks.” (DMY)
“Throughout the pounding track [Midnight Ride], the Italian beat smith expertly blends lush

synths with intricate rhythmic components and gritty bass.” (EDM.com)

“Depas' approach to techno is a veritable melting pot of influences, blending sounds from
the 80s and 90s with contemporary symphonic and cinematic elements.” (Magnetic Mag)



Following his recent ‘Rave The Planet’ EP at the end of February, Milanese hard techno
producer Maike Depas is back with a brand-new release on well-renowned label The
Innovation Studio. His newest EP is named ‘The Age Of Chaos’ and features a five-track
banger arsenal – including a special remix by Italo-American producer Matasism, which
was also included in his recent BPtich Control mixtape.

“This EP is the result my own experience throughout an inner dystopic reality,
where energy-ridden sounds and epics all collide into a very personal version
of the hard techno legacy I’m devoted to.”

‘No Redemption’ is a proper big-room belter, with explosive drop divided by a big break
and a statuesque vocal that feels like a claim: “Techno is my only drug”. Same goes for
‘Tesseract’ and it’s rave-like atmosphere and hypnotic hook. ‘Dystopia’ is pure groove
and makes the listener dive into a distorted and futuristic metaverse, while ‘Cyber Attack’
and its remix include synthetic vocals tha aim to symbolize an artificial imposition: man
against machine, fiction against reality.

‘The Age Of Chaos’ will be available from April 19th via The Innovation Studio.

About MAIKE DEPAS

Young hard techno DJ-producer Maike
Depas (born Michelangelo De Pasquale)
has seen the future of music and it’s called
metaverse: “In the future it will blow up,”
he predicts. “And it’s going to revolutionize
the way we experience music.” Bowled
over by Skrillex and Martin Garrix by the
age of eight, and DJing at smaller Milan
clubs by the time he was eleven, Depas
went on to study composition and piano at
the prestigious Milan Conservatory before
learning ‘life-changing” lessons from the
best in the business at Catalyst’s 4-week
Advanced Sound Design course in Berlin’s
Funkhaus . His production gets inspired
by huge 90s trance synths as much as
pounding hard techno from artists such as
Kobosil, In Verruf and Amelie Lens.
2024 marked the launch of MAIKE
DEPAS 2.0,
a tectonic audio-visual shift that entails a wide array of content from DJ sets
livestreamed from Berlin’s Teufelsberg and other dystopic locations around Europe to
cyberpunk-inspired outfits designed by Demobaza, a cyberpunk-inspired casual couture
brand best known for their sustainable Dune X Demobaza collection. Over the course of
a developing metamorphosis from a flesh-and-bone individual to a mysterious CGI
character, Depas is another step closer to revolutionize the dance music scene through
the metaverse.
