Chicken EP

Madtech
Bouncing from the first beat, ‘Chicken’ doesn't piss around, utilising some nice sample work for added texture. ‘Phantom’ is a little more ‘heads down’ dance music, until Alexis reveals a vocal sample, which is eventually cut between the rhythm in typical Alexis Raphael style. Mar-T and Dave Nash both take hold of ‘Chicken' for individual remixes. Mar-T’s is delicate and screams edit from the get-go but comes in to its own halfway with a bassline synth that seriously jacks things up. Dave Nash alters proceedings with an atmospheric treat, heavy on the sound design, completed with a seriously dubby, bass-hefty drop. You won’t expect this, but you will love it.
