Mad Tech(Kerri Chandler's New Label) - Citizen Deep End EP
Citizen-Deep End EPHERE
Madtech's first release comes from fresh talent, Citizen, who will be leading the Madtech odyssey with his belting four-track EP, "Deep End".
The EP acts a true reflection of the labels sound, with Citizen engraving and paving the style and quality the label will pursue.
Citizen's production lands a strong introduction to the rich bass, cutting house sound that catalysed MadTech, carving the way for future Madtech artists, sprung into the future by their raw talent and the labels passion for quality stylistic house music.
"Deep End" leads the way, and uses a combination of drums that dance between each other creating gust and energy. The vocals above slowly build, climaxing into a firm UK bass-pounding drop that will shake systems with monstrous power.
"Truth", the second track on the EP is anchored by a weighty bass and fuelled by a deep muffled beat that determinedly pounds beneath.
"Came Through" uses its vocal to power a steady breakdown. The track is decorated with hi-hats, screaming with the passionate vocal, calmed by melodic chords until it drops into a weighty bass heavy bliss.
"Oh Gee"'s intro shimmers with sensitivity and calm. Cosmic chime sounds ripple effortlessly into a pounding beat. The track progresses, building layers out of multi-lined melodies and intricate beat patterns, which inspire a soaring atmosphere.
