KOMPAKT PODCAST #5 – Madben

@madben: “This DJ mix was recorded at home with music I’ve been enjoying recently, plus I included a few unreleased tracks from myself. I went into doing this with a “podcast” purpose, so this isn’t a peak time DJ set per say (you can check my SoundCloud page out for some live DJ mixes if you want that). I attempted to tell a special story about groove, melody and fit in a bit of mental techno for good measure. I hope you enjoy it!”

We’ve been following this Rex Club resident for some time now and fell for his ability to deconstruct the best of the 90’s techno movement with a unique twist of melodic groove, then bring it together in a means that is both provocative and gracefully punishing. The fact that he’s been heavily supported by the likes of such champions as Laurent Garnier, Dave Clarke, SLAM, Emmanuel Top, John Digweed or Mark Taylor from Underground Resistance speaks volumes of his capability to reach beyond the ears of just the techno purists.
Today, MADBEN has found a home with the legendary ASTROPOLIS imprint and will release a new full length in early 2018.

MADBEN is available for bookings world-wide (excluding France) via KOMPAKT ARTIST AGENCY: http://ift.tt/2j3LgQq by Kompakt http://ift.tt/2zRQXJ1
