Dark Dread / Emerald

Blossoms Kitchen Records

Released: 6th February 2006 | 3 track single
Madtone resides in Peckham, South London and has his first release 'Dark Dread' coupled with 'Emerald', out on a limited seven inch single on Blossoms Kitchen Records. The two tracks combine Madtones? influences, musical and non musical; dub, Jah Wobble, Holger Czukay, New Order, Throbbing Gristle, pirate radio, shortwave espionage and assorted noises culled from years of taping off the radio. 'Dark Dread' is a bass heavy monster. Its deep, dark and full of suprises. The darker side of dub perhaps? 'Emerald' is at the other end of the musical scale; rough and jarring. An old musical box is turned inside out with some heavy distortion and peppered with some dark beats. The tracks have already been played on CD-R on BBC Radio 1s? The Blue Room, XFMs? Flo-Motion, BFBS's The Chill Out Room and Steve Barkers? On The Wire. Worldwide radio plays on: The Echo Chamber (KFAI, USA) Mental Chatter (CKLN, Canada)'
"The A side is a dark beast with an 80's UK dub feel, full of surprises and heavy, heavy bass. Emerald is a more electronica inspired piece with a distorted music box providing a jarring melody"
