Kerri Chandler’s Mad Tech Records offers a string of original releases with an artist compilation entitled ‘MadTech 01’ Its a 14 track collections with a host of past and present artists getting onboard for the release. Artists including Artifact, Celsius, Cera Alba, Kalyde and Simba feature on the first part of the release.

2014 has been a huge and successful year for the label with a string of massive releases from No Artificial Colours, Citizen, Kry Wolf, Celsius and Waifs and Strays. With over 25 releases on the Mad Tech catalog we look forward to hearing what the label has to offer in 2015

Here we see the imprint push on with ‘MadTech 01’, a various artist’s compilation of fourteen exclusive tracks, welcoming back several artists on the MadTech roster, while also introducing some new talents onto the imprint.

Opening up the sampler package is new signing Cera Alba, a fledgling London-based producer known for his works on Audiojack’s Gruuv imprint, ViVa Music and ALiVE. Here we see Cera offer up his signature rugged house sound with a percussive fuelled workout, laden with underlying hypnotic atmospherics and mesmerizing synth sequences. Following is ‘On Me’ from Kalyde (aka Richard Main one half of MadTech duo Az&Tor), which sees Main explore a rougher production style in comparison to preceding material, employing heavily distorted rhythms, rumbling sub tones, swirling dub echoes and bubbling analogue sweeps to create a hard- hitting, peak-time number.

Up next is MadTech regular Celsius with the ‘Depletion (Bassline Dub Edit)’, treating us to his typically stunning production style by fusing soft ethereal pad lines and dreamy soundscapes with shuffled drum sounds and an infectious square wave bass hook. While Simba offers up something completely contrasting and brilliantly unique via ‘Count To Three’, as he employs frenzied percussive sounds and penetrating bass hits alongside intricately chopped and processed vocal snippets to create a heady dark room cut. The package is then rounded off with Artifact’s ‘Hundred Monsters’, and as expected from the Local Action artist we’re provided with a mood-driven house composition with a multitude of layers unfolding and retracting throughout its six-minute duration.
