Kerri Chandler’s MadTech Records rounds off the year with ‘MadTech 2015’ a retrospective compilation looking back over the year and accompanied by five exclusive new compositions.
Reflecting on the past year MadTech Records has once again take huge strides with ever on-point material from hotly tipped producers like Applebottom, Kalyde, Cera Alba and No Artificial Colours. Here we see the label glance over this years achievements with ‘MadTech 2015’ collating many of the labels hit records throughout the year while providing a string of exclusive new cuts for the package.
Up first on the exclusives is Apollo 84’s ‘Snookies’ and the UK artist delivers a percussive led groove accompanied by stuttering vocal murmurs, shuffling snare rolls, warbling bass tones and tension building string samples. Di Chiara Brother’s ‘Message’ follows and Italian sibling duo offer up a funk infused slice of house with a rhythmic New Jersey swing, organic bass licks and heavily processed vocal chops.
Up next is Nightshift with ‘Do Not Be Alarmed’, bringing a rave tinged edge to things with menacing bass leads, frenzied synth blips and murmuring vocal lines hidden in the depths of the record. Raffa FL’s ‘Chantelle’ strips things back a bit with low-slung drums tucked behind an ever-blooming bass line with a touch of acid. Last up to round off the exclusive content from the comp, Demarzo reworks Apollo 84’s ‘Snookies’, stamping his unique hypnotic style on the original number.
The ‘MadTech 2015’ compilation is out on MadTech Records 27th November (Beatport Exclusive) and 11th December (General) 2015.
