Title: Mada Theory
Label: Apotek Records
Cat. #: APT 018
US native and Techno newcomer 785 blasts onto the scene with a stellar debut 12″.
Kansas native 785 debuts with his first 12″ ever on Jerome Sydenham’s Apotek records. It is clear this evasive sound engineer has a special gift to craft Techno from sources others may have never dared to tap.
The A-side ‘Mada Theory’ is a display of pure Techno diversity with slight nods to dub, ambient and the upper class of minimal. A record whose beauty may lay in it simplicity until one witnesses the complex chaos it causes on dance-floors.
The flip, ‘East Box’, gets a tad more ‘mechanical’ utilizing drilling kicks and a host of atmospheric sounds sliding in unison with machine rhythms, coagulating into some hardened molten Tech-Funk.
Both tracks have that special something that makes them standout. What has he employed that others haven’t? A phenomenon we’ll have to wait to decode until he unleashes his next pack of roving beats.
