No Art welcome MADVILLA to the label to deliver his ‘Lipid’ EP, backed by a remix from Romanian favourite Mihai Popoviciu.
An exciting name set for a big 2021, California-born, London-based talent MADVILLA has emerged as a surging name since his arrival onto the UK and global house scene early last year. Following a busy twelve months which included fresh music on his own Hot Wings imprint alongside material on Seb Zito’s Seven Dials Records, Desert Hearts Records and CUFF, February welcomes the arrival of a new label to the catalogue as he debuts on ANOTR’s No Art imprint with his ‘Lipid’ EP, with Cyclic Records boss Mihai Popoviciu stepping up on remix duties.
Lead cut ‘Lipid’ showcases a classy blend of classic house tones amongst more modern influences as shuffling percussion meets wandering synths and warped vocal samples. Next, ‘Sucka’ welcomes a lively combination of snaking hats, resonant bass licks and swirling pads to offer up an infectious peak-time offering, whilst the shimmering ‘Ion Care’ welcomes further energy as two-step drum patterns go to work beneath sharp lasers and deeper melodies. To close, the always excellent Popoviciu reveals his take on the lead cut, stripping things back and layering dubby arrangements and rolling grooves to shape up proceedings in fine fashion.
