MadTech Records delivers its first EP of 2016 with February in the shape of Solardo’s ‘How I Work’ EP, a three-track collection from the UK duo.
Mark Richards (MRK1) and James Eliot aka Solardo have been on the rise over the past couple of years with material for Skream’s Of Unsound Mind imprint, ViVa and their very own Sola imprint, as well as picking up support from Boiler Room for their debut and the likes of Jamie Jones, Skream, Steve Lawler and Matthias Tanzmann. Here the duo push on with a fresh three tracker release via Kerri Chandler’s MadTech Records.
Title track ‘How I Work’ opens the release and sees Solardo fuse chugging bass grooves and crunchy percussion with infectious vocal hooks and acidic synth blips, resulting in a dance floor ready twist on contemporary house music to open the release. ‘Beat That’ follows and lays down a similarly hypnotic groove fuelled by rumbling sub bass tones, acid licks and looped vocals uttering the track title.
The package is rounded off with ‘Digital’ which takes on a classic electro feel with 8 bit style rhythms, penetrating square wave bass hits and mind bending pad swirls throughout, MadTech once again proves it’s a force to be reckoned with in 2016 via this exciting new act.
