Berlin-based Frag Maddin bursts onto STRCTR with four hefty cuts. Maddin, whose hard-hitting sound has touched Mistress Recordings, Madhouse Records, W&O Street Tracks and Snatch! in the past makes his way into 2020 in style.
Side A's lead track kicks of the label's sixth release; the aptly-titled 'Industrial Deafness', is one warehouse-proof, downright dirty jumble of loose 4x4 drums and hardware groove. Nick Behringer's remix forms its own subtle groove with a minimal house edge - more intimate bar, less cavernous warehouse.
Side B's 'Stuhltanz' has floating flutes, jazz keys and one catchy vocal sample - a weighty kick and bumping bassline brings it together. And the DOS remix takes the euphoria of the special track one step further, adding a warm break and a complimentary sprinkling of acid.
