UK garage legend Maxwell D collabs with MK's Jon Boyle for heavyweight 'Serious' refix

UK garage legend Maxwell D has teamed up with rising Milton Keynes producer Jon Boyle for a heavyweight refix of his 2001 hit ‘Serious’.

The renowned South London MC has collaborated with the up-and-coming BBC 1Xtra and Kiss FM favourite for the release of Jon Boyle X Maxwell D – Serious Come On – which comes out on all major platforms this Friday (November 11th).

Both artists have enjoyed a successful summer, with Maxwell D’s latest single ‘Timeless’ sparking a viral TikTok dance craze and Jon's debut Pretty Girl EP earning support from DJ EZ, Kiss FM’s Shosh and DJ Q, plus 1Xtra’s Sian Anderson who described the producer as her “new obsession”.

Serious Come On is an epic, pumping mash-up of ‘Serious’ and Boyle’s instrumental track ‘Come On’, and Maxwell D explained how the collaboration came about.

“Jon dropped me a DM asking if he could have a Serious acapella to put over the top of an instrumental track he’d made,” he said.

“He just wanted a dubplate to play in his DJ sets initially but once I heard the backing track I was really impressed and offered to record some fresh vocals for an official release.

“I have some family ties around where Jon lives, which helps as I’m quite often in that neck of the woods. Coincidently we both do a bit of teaching too alongside our music work, so we have a few things in common. Hopefully people will like the track.”
