The MadTech Records imprint is back with the Chicken EP from rising British artist Alexis Raphael, all backed up with remixes from Dave Nash and Mar-T.

Rising British artist Alexis Raphael has come a long way over the past few years since initially stepping onto the scene via Jamies Jones’ Hot Creations in 2011, since then Raphael’s name has graced the catalogue of Leftroom, Culprit, Lower East, Moda Black and of course MadTech where he returns to here. With such an impressive list of affiliations and an already noteworthy back catalogue under his belt, Alexis is undoubtedly a driving force in the world of contemporary house music out of the UK.

On the flip side of the package the title track gets two reworks, firstly from Cocoon Recordings artist and Amnesia Ibiza resident Mar-T, who reworks the track into a stripped back number with sweeping atmospherics, growling bass tones and bubbling melodies. Portugal’s Dave Nash then rounds off the package with his take on ‘Chicken’, delivering a smooth and hypnotic interpretation fuelled by
fluttering pad lines, snaking sub drones and evolving stab sequences.

Alexis’s prevalence is displayed throughout the ‘Chicken’ EP as he ebbs and flows through weighty low slung grooves, bumpy bass hooks and infectious vocal loops with title cut ‘Chicken’ and the mesmerising ‘Phantom’.
