NEW

A 11 track techno album (40m 43s) — released January 15th 2016 on raum

NEW is the third full-length album from the young Kyoto based producer Kazumichi Komatsu aka Madegg. Using mainly hardware and analog synthesizers, Madegg has created a world of thoughtfully woven melodies and basslines that shimmer with beauty and anxiety. NEW transcends it's various musical formats through playful boldness and exploration, embracing concepts of juxtaposition, sacred forms, intimacy and savagery, and the boundaries of language. The unrelenting beat, raw feel and ecstatic psychedelia of NEW attempts to carve a new surface into the planetary shell of dance music. A pulse of emptiness defines each musical landscape before rotting slowly into it's own ambience. Techno, raw-house, drone, industrial, body music, ambient...; NEW is both casual and complex, a uniquely authentic experience.

Madegg lives in his own world, one where wabi-sabi can be expressed as rickety 2-ste - Ad Hoc

Madegg’s music travels afar common dimensions - Inverted Audio

It's a fidgety listen that builds slowly and carefully into something grand and luxurious, bringing to mind Aphex Twin's more stately period - Redbull Music
