Following the announcement of his exclusive signing to drum & bass empire Hospital Records, Maduk presents his debut release with the label, “Not Alone” - an energetic three piece set of dance-floor feelers that accelerate through vocal chop ups and piano lead melodies.
In “Not Alone” Maduk has drawn from a number of local talents with lively layered vocals from MVE & Frae. Also working alongside Maduk on production and arrangement is electro-house duo Duckfront.
Maduk quotes many Hospital Records artists as key inspirations so it’s no surprise his collaboration with Logistics delivers; “Solarize” shifts up the pitch, drops down the bass and reels out the drums for an infectious drum & bass roller. Finally “Africa” - a track previously selected for Fred V & Grafix’s popular 2015 “Hospital Mixtape” - which draws for gentle piano chords, brass horns, glimmering flute, subtle high-hats and looped vocal snippets showcasing Maduk’s more mellow and melodic side.
It was only last year that Maduk took home the title of “Best Newcomer Producer” at the Drum & Bass Arena awards, a well-deserved win having had several popular releases on Viper, Allsorts and Fokuz Recordings as well as on his own YouTube channel turned record label, Liquicity Recordings. Looking to the future Maduk has made a home at Hospital Records with plenty more in the pipeline.
“Exactly 4 years ago I made my first track as Maduk with a drumloop from Nu:Tone his sample pack. If you would have told me that I’ld work alongside him and the rest of the drum & bass masters at Hospital Records 4 years later, I would have never believed you. Joining Hospital feels as the perfect time and place to release my music!” - Maduk
