The part of me that likes stockpiling blog posts so when public holidays…LIKE TODAY…roll around and I wouldn’t have to work loves the fact Kyoto’s Madegg releases music at such a fast clip. Yet the more reasoned side knows that would be a bad idea, so instead here is a post highlighting three tracks the kid has released in the past 10 days. The newest one, “Sea 1,” highlights Madegg’s excursions into near-ambience, the only thing separating this song from, say, something Christian Fennesz would make being the spoon-shaking percussion. It feels like most of the Madegg tracks I write about here lean towards more beat-heavy, Brainfeeder-esque stuff, but he seems just as comfortable making numbers like this one too.
Speaking of beat-heavy material…here’s “15:49.” This one matches a hazy beat up over a jazzy piano sample. Lasting about one and thirty seconds, it’s brief but fun while it lasts.
“15:49” highlights Madegg’s recent interest in pianos, the ivories also popping up in (the much-longer trip of) “Spectrum Cloud.” Of these three recently posted tunes, “Spectrum Clouds” jumps out as the most Madeggy, cosmic beats blurred with samples to create a deeply woozy experience.
