Various Artists – MMXIX, A Madhouse Compilation

Madhouse Records delivers their next V/A featuring Wouter S, Carlo, Manuold, Sebb Junior, Roy Vision and Dub Striker.

Following on from the release of their ’25 Years of Madhouse’ compilation in late 2018, Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse imprint returns this November with ‘MMXIX, A Madhouse Compilation’ which lands as the label’s first VA for 2019 and continues their ethos of featuring both emerging and established artists who are at the forefront of soulful and dynamic House. 44BASS label boss Wouter S heads up the eclectic mix of guests as Neovinyl co-owner Carlo, rising Italian artist Manuold, La Vie d’Artiste Music founder Sebb Junior, Paris-based artist Roy Vision and fellow French duo Dub Striker join the roster, each delivering fresh originals for this latest release.

Wouter S opens the package with ‘En Route A Paris’, featuring rolling hi-hats, 909 claps and a slick Rhodes pattern, followed by Carlo’s ‘Kilimanjaro Coconut’, which introduces shimmering cymbals, a swinging bass line and soft keys. Manuold then utilitises a classic vocal on ‘Beat Back’ with solid kicks and retro
synths supporting, while ‘Cause You Love’ by Sebb Junior continues the sampled vocals vibe, adding harmonising strings and splashing percussion. Roy Vision’s ‘Ruff Draft’ then shakes things up with

phasing pads, 303 styled subs and subtle Arps, before ‘Time Flies’ from Dub Striker concludes the VA with loose drums, syncopated rifts and arpeggiated high-range frills.
