Download: Madeaux – The Space Between Us

An oxymoronic offering from US newcomer Madeaux. This one’s high octane chillout, frantic percussion collapsing underneath broken-up vocals and a piano sample or several. Featuring a variety of vocal cuts, most prominently those of Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, “The Space Between Us” definitely keeps you on your toes. Opening with a chilling vocal sample and some sinister stringwork, the atmosphere is almost immediately lightened by a tinkling xylophone before the track explodes with energy. Perhaps one for the internet age, but certainly not to be dismissed as a production for those with brief attention spans. Despite its twists and turns, this is a track that has you spinning it back for another listen. More remixes and mixes on his soundcloud page, and this one’s a free download too.
