Madcap - Joy & Pain EP

Smooth N Groove Records have saved the best till last, ending out the year with the much hyped 'Joy & Pain' EP by top shelf producer Madcap. The EP has been receiving heavy support from some of drum & basses top players, including Randall, LTJ Bukem, Makoto and Velocity to name a few.

Since the early 90's Madcap has been heavily involved within the Drum & Bass scene, primarily as a DJ touring up and down the UK before trying his hand at music production. Since his first release in 2006 on Nookies label, Phuzion and later the legendary Good Looking Records, Madcap has continued to master his distinctive sound to the high quality we hear today. Over the years his fan base has grown rapidly, placing him in high demand amongst co-producers wanting to collaborate alongside him or labels wanting a release. His back catalogue continues to grow and he has seen releases on Fokuz, Celcius, Jazzsticks, a recent vinyl release on Soul Deep and his track 'Rain' featured on Randall's LP Pieces 2.

2017 has been a busy year for Madcap and he is ending it out strong. The 'Joy & Pain' EP shows his experience as a producer and why he is considered one of the greats within the scene. The EP is influenced by both sides of the musical spectrum. From the deeper moods of 'String Puppet' to the more soulful, bass booming and highly addictive vibes of 'Joy'. The EP continues to progress and gets better and better, notably the amazing vocals and steppy drum patten in 'Pray' to the wicked rolling vibes of 'Traits'. This EP is by far one of, if not his best solo work to date.

“Been in the game for a long time. Fantastic DJ , consistently writing quality tracks” - LTJ Bukem
