Makeup & Vanity Set (MAVS) emanates from Nashville, TN and started making electronic music in the mid 90s. Like many other big names in his genre, MAVS is a result of the mod tracking scene that was booming during the early days of the internet. Since he put on a ski mask in 2004, MAVS has proven himself as a quality brand in every aspect of the electronic music scene that he has touched. He has become a respected name within the early U.S. electro house scene, the chiptune scene, and most recently the synthwave scene.
The experience that MAVS has earned through more than a decade of said genres is shown of in a very refined way, and sometimes over the span of just one track it becomes significantly difficult to be sure if to classify it as Synthwave, Chiptune, Electro house or new wave. Instead, MAVS music is better described as a reverence and celebration of electronic music from the 70s and 80s as it would have sounded if today was the future imagined by the past, composed by someone who have the touch, eye and ear for details as only people that started composing with trackers have.
Chrome is the sequel to MAVS 2016 EP Wavehymnal. It ventures further into the path of distorted and glitchy milieu of cyber insecurity. A perfect soundtrack to the road trip through a world of burning chrome and dissolving transistors.
