Having recently released his deep house track “Going Back” on Beatport on October 7th, deep house DJ Maceo Plex is looking to capitalize on his release. But you may know him by another name, Maetrik. Now known as Maceo Plex, he spent many years under the moniker Maetrik and, in an interview with UK media outlet The Independent back in April of this year he shed some light on the different names, saying “It’s really nice, the Maetrik stuff is what I do, it’s what I’ve always done. The Maceo Plex stuff is fun, sexy house music or whatever you want to call it – the timing was perfect with that, I had the right sound at the right moment. But now things are changing, my music is changing, I’m doing more Maetrik stuff and going back to my roots.” So for those of you wondering why the name change, there you have it.

Now many DJ’s grow and evolve, but very few actually change their name (could you imagine being the person in charge of the social media accounts?!) But hey, we’re not here to judge.
