Various Artists - Madhouse Amsterdam 2016
Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse delivers it’s ‘Amsterdam 2016’ compilation this October, comprising a selection of eleven tracks, both back-catalogue and exclusive new material.
The long running Madhouse Records, as well as it’s founder Kerri Chandler have long been purveyors of authentic and heartfelt house music since the early nineties and over the years the label has seen developing acts blossom alongside a catalogue boasting names such as Dennis Ferrer, Tony Lionni, Demarkus Lewis and of course Kerri ‘Kaoz’ Chandler himself.
This time round it’s a retrospective compilation coming in the shape of ‘Amsterdam 2016’, reflecting on past times whilst also stirring in some new flavours from Chris Stussy and Soledrifter. Both up and coming artists deliver their modern twist on classic house sounds with Chris Stussy’s ‘Let People Know’ and ‘My Mission’ laying down deftly flowing, organic rhythms and smooth chord sequences in a subtly unfolding fashion. Whilst Soledrifter pairs up with ISSA for a raw and energetic composition led by bright stab hits, soaring strings and a weighty bass lead, whilst ISSA adds a soulful edge to the record.
Across the rest of the package we revisit some of the labels key highlights from recent times from the likes of Washerman, Voyeur, Tony Lionni, Supernova and more.
‘Madhouse Amsterdam 2016’ is out on Madhouse Records 7th (Traxsource) and 21st (General) October 2016.
