Together with the Syndicate crew Max Lane embarked on a mini European tour to France & UK. The first stop was Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival where they played on the opening day at the Centre Régional d'Art Contemporain in the beautiful town of Sète at the south of France. Playing alongside Awesome Tapes from Africa, Leftoo, Christian Prommer & Alexander Barck, they got the five-day music mayhem going to a crowd from all over Europe.
The Syndicate team also organized the first ever Singapore x London Bass Exchange for a night called SuperHelix with two rooms featuring DJs, producers & visual artists from the two cities. Om Unit, Blue Daisy, Digital, Morphy & Need for Mirrors joined the Singapore contigent for a bassy night out.

Rounding up the trip, Max Lane & Cherry Chan hit the Jus Like Music online radio show on NTS. Both of them played a short set live on air and had a quick chat with the Jus Like Music man himself, Gavin Handley. And what didn't go on air was a surprise visit by Kutmah to the studio.
Volume 1, of the new Outsourced Mixtape series boasts an array of blunted fuzzed out beats by 20 producers from all over, representing labels such as FatCat Records, Cold Busted, Black Acre and more...
A track by Max Lane has been recently featured in a free beats compilation released by Belgium-based label, Urban Waves.
Exploring all kinds of urban music featuring artists from all over the world, this compilation is totally free. It’s made of new and exclusive material, some tracks that were already posted but never accessible to download, and another few that came from recent releases. In other words a lot of fine artists to discover or rediscover.
