Breaking News :: ‘Apocalypse Later’ By Anthony Maintain, Onry Ozzborn and Meganoke


After a stint in Anthony Maintain‘s live set, Apocalypse Later is now seeing the light of day.  A banger of an Anthony Maintain track, with a little verbal assistance from Onry Ozzborn and Meganoke, this track is haunting in the best ways.

Sounds Of Science :: Exploded Drawing SXSW 2014 Compilation

Exploded Drawing is an endless abyss of talent… mad buttons getting pushed in our collective.  Every year during SXSW, the kind folks that curate the monthly event take the time to put together a retrospective of those involved with the family.  Here’s 2014, and it’s a banger.


Stampede Of Sound :: Fat Beats And Anthony Maintain’s “The Elephant Race”

from the digital desk of Fat Beats:

Anthony Maintain comes to the label via Boston, MA.  He moved down to Austin a couple years ago and has been making his own special brand of twisted and dark music as one of the original performers at Austin’s Exploded Drawing.  An MC in his own right, this LP showcases his unreal soundscapes through his production, and invites you into a world of terror set to a kick and a snare.  Pure Original now out of Texas, he is and has been part of our extended family since the beginning.”

Purchase of this cassette gets you 13 original songs, plus a killer digital version containing an additional 13 remixes from Lo Phi, Soundfounder, Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice, Kinder and more.  Support good music.

Maintain The Rock :: Anthony Maintain Keeps Feeding You

My favorite Bruin fan, Anthony Maintain, has been hella busy in the studio lately.  After sneak previewing the world to The Elephant Race before it was picked up by iNSECT Records, he has steadily worked on and released high quality music, both old and new.

Shortly after The Elephant Race was pulled in order to prepare for its official release (and its companion piece full of remixes by myself and other Exploded Drawing alumni), Maintain released The Elephant Runtsa collection of work that didn’t quite make the cut for the LP, but are still worth a listen.

Recently, Maintain just returned off of a winter tour back to his hometown of Boston.  In preparation for the tour, he put together an exclusive compilation of old work, new work, and guest appearances.  This comp features appearances by Onry Ozborn, Homeroom, Click-Clack and myself, and many more.  Dig it and dig it good…

Stay tuned… there will be much more coming from his direction in the near future.


Run For Your Life :: Anthony Maintain debuts “The Elephant Race”

A former Bostonian, now an Austinite… Anthony Maintain has become an integral part of the beat scene that has grown in the capitol city.  After time with the Locksmiths and countless side projects/collaborations, the time has come for his first instrumental solo release, and it’s a monster.  I could go on and on about how great it is, or I can just tell you that it’s a steal at $5.  It is actually less smart to not download this.


The Clique Gets Thicker :: Anthony Maintain Joins Gilded Alliance

from the digital desk of Glory Gold & Glitter:

“Behold, the next in the continuing Gilded Alliance series.  Anthony Maintain, founding member of the Pawn Shop experimental hip hop collective, as well as brainchild behind the annual Pawn Takes King hip hop festival, has laid out another incredible mix for Gilded Alliance.  Jazztape (With A Soft J)” is an hour filled with chilled jazz sounds perfectly blended with his signature style of beat production and sound manipulation.  Make it a point to set some time aside and give this a solid listen, your soul will be thankful you did.”
