Frag Maddin – One Hand


3516-201090_600.jpgLabel: DefinitionScore: 7/10

Swiss label Definition:Music has long been a rich source of new music, especially where emerging talents are concerned. And they’ve managed to pull off a real corker with their latest acquisition, Frag Maddin. While I had yet to check out any of Maddin’s discography prior to this, his is evidently a nuanced and varied sound – attributes we reckon, which endeared him to the label in the first place.

The strong 4-tracker gets underway thanks to ‘One Hand’, a bumping track that calls on plenty of ghoulish sounds and vocals especially. The grinding piano chords are delightfully eschewed, and this one is sure to cause the proverbial damage during peak-time sessions. ‘Brochette’ is another lovely produced track, with the emphasis this time on a series of piano rolls that unfurl in rather majestic fashion.

The B-side is no less enticing. ‘RedEye’ sticks to a pretty consistent deep house script, before ‘Gonna Be’ acts as a lovely send off with a sound that really can’t help but push you in the direction of the floor. All in all, it’s another winner here from the boys in Switzerland. 

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
