What's so good?

There's no denying I'm becoming a MadTech addict. First there was Kashii, then there was Citizen. And now, I'm happy to introduce you to Lakosa & iO, the third to grace the MadTech roster.

Fresh off the press, the Home Early EP is an excellent showcase of all the best in current house. The original mix is a homage to classic house with a flexibility that will stretch well into the future and beyond. Probably my favorite off the EP, the minimal approach to composition still generates a burgeoning exuberance. Dynamic and deep with only a few elements, Lakosa and iO easily paint a warm and seductive soundscape.

Home Early EP also features remixes by West Norwood Cassette Library (who weaves in some UK funky to add a bit of Motown soul) and the exceptionally talented, experimental grime producer Pedro 123. Pedro 123, at 17 years old, expertly executes a tasteful bass-driven version of "Home Early," bringing his unique percussive production to the forefront in all its relevant glory.
