Soundcloud preview: https://soundcloud.com/soundavenue/sets … madloch-cd
The last five years has seen Madloch in constant motion. The Belgian artist discovered electronic music in the early nineties and has been enthralled with it ever since. His early days as a local DJ in Tongeren have led him to heights that he couldn't have imagined at the time. After creating the Sound Avenue imprint in 2011 Madloch has been on a momentous rise through the electronic music underground. The label which holds a meticulous discography of 48 releases now embodies two subsidiaries (Crossfade Sounds and 3rd Avenue) under its wing and each has become a benchmark for musical quality.
Much like the success of Sound Avenue Madloch's production career has soared. Originally sharing the Mitrinique production moniker with Dimitri Chantzis Dominique created the Madloch alias in 2012 to explore different stylistic blueprints. 2014 saw the Belgian producer with two paramount productions, 'Walls' and 'Reading Souls', the latter written in conjunction with friend and Sound Avenue label artist Matias Vila. Electronic music luminaries King Unique, James Teej and Nikko.Z chose to remix the elusive productions both of which received critical and commercial acclaim. An increasingly busy gig schedule found Madloch travelling to Austria, Germany, Greece, Holland, Lithuania and Spain. At home in Belgium he remains one of the country's top underground DJs where he has shared the decks with 16 Bit Lolitas, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Matthew Dekay.
Both Madloch and Sound Avenue have developed immeasurably over the last three years which leads to the announcement of the labels first ever mixed compilation entitled 'Sound Avenue #1'. With Madloch heading up both the A&R and programming of the mix the 15 exclusive tracks will be released on both the CD and digital platforms. Included on the collection (in order of appearance) are Pedro Aguiar, One Of Them, Andrew McDonnell, Hot TuneiK, Daraspa, Beat Syndrome, Peter Makto & Gregory S, BP, John Debo, LOM, Desaturate, Float & Vid Marjanovic, Guy Mantzur, Kastis Torrau & Arnas D and Riza & Sensoreal.

Topic: SA044 Madloch - Walls (King Unique Remix + One Of Them Remix) (0 replies, posted in Promotional Posts)
Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/madloch/sets/mad ... und-avenue
Sound Avenue label boss Madloch was welcomed back into the production spotlight four months ago with a fresh collaborative project alongside Spanish producer Matias Vila. It was a near yearlong absence for the Belgian producer and the quality of the production (Reading Souls) left electronic music fans hungry for more. Fast forward four months and the 44th release on Sound Avenue finds Madloch presenting his first solo studio work in over a year. 'Walls' looks to be the Belgian producer's career best and features remixes from: One of Them and King Unique.
The 'Walls' original mix kicks the release off with a DJ friendly intro that's highlighted by thoughtful soundscapes and cool electronic quirks. The alluring atmosphere immediately draws you in and it's pleasant cadence is quite invigorating. As the main motifs begin to take shape a cluster of soft rhythmic tones and vibrant chimes work together in wonderful harmonic unison. This delicately structured sonic vortex tantalizes the senses and leads the piece to the main break. Following this short but reflective interlude the buoyant groove reaches its full magnitude and the strong emotive themes deliver an engaging climax. A pristinely produced piece of music and no doubt the best of Madloch's career.
The first remix on the release is supplied by One Of Them who is making his debut appearance on Sound Avenue. Born in Philadelphia but raised in Greece Nick Dalagelis aka One Of Them has now relocated back to the USA and calls New York home. 2014 has been the strongest of Nick's six year production career. His appearances on John Digweed's Bedrock Records, Chris Fortier's Fade Records and John Debo's Mindwarp Records have all been sensational. Nick keeps that great momentum going here with an amazing interpretation of 'Walls'. With a much deeper and more introspective approach Nick has overhauled the piece into a real late night gem. It's percussive groove, luminous harmonies and fuzzy tones carry a blissful radiance that is rare in today's over populated deep house arena. Excelling on the sum of its parts this electronic adventure is sure to be one of Nick's most sought after remix productions of the year.
The second and final remix is provided King Unique who is also making his debut appearance on Sound Avenue. Formed in 2001 the King Unique production touch has appeared on more than fifty remixes and has yielded some of the biggest dance floor bombs known to man, most notably: Dirty Vegas' "Walk Into The Sun", Underworld's "Two Months Off" and The Killers "Somebody Told Me". It's been another stellar year for King Unique with original productions for Bedrock and microCastle along with a very special update on the classic 'Yohkoh' for Sudbeat Music. The King Unique sound has evolved immensely over the last calendar year and his interpretation of 'Walls' is further evidence of that. Backed by a shuffling framework and punchy bass stabs it's expertly layered rhythms carve out a refined and contemporary groove. The main break may the highlight though with its delicate silence broken by dusty chimes and a sneaky re-entry which should provide your dance floor with an exhilarating rush.

Topic: SA039 Lonya & Alley Cat - Bedtime Stories (Jay Tripwire + Wes Straub) (0 replies, posted in Promotional Posts)
Artist: Lonya & Alley Cat
Label: Sound Avenue
2. Jay Tripwire
3. Wes Straub
SOUNDCLOUD PREVIEW: https://soundcloud.com/soundavenue/sets … edtime-jay
Written by Mitch Alexander
By all accounts it's been a great year for Lonya. The Israeli producer has continued to push cutting edge electronic music on his Asymmetric Recordings imprint and his productions have appeared on Hernan Cattaneo's Sudbeat Music. The 38th release on Sound Avenue finds Lonya returning to the label for his fourth overall appearance and a new collaborative single. The Israeli producer has teamed up with a mysterious new studio partner by the name of Alley Cat. The result of this newly paired duo's first studio collaboration together is entitled 'Bedtime Stories' and it comes with remixes from Jay Tripwire and Wes Straub.
The 'Bedtime Stories' original gets underway with a powerful framework that's adorned with smooth shifting tones and a soft hypnotic underbelly of aquatic keys. A short break brings the glistening keys to the forefront and the powerful groove soon returns along with a wealth of harmonic swells which breathe an air of melodious psychedelia into the mix. Following a blissful main break the seemingly endless cascade of keys drives the emotion higher along with a series of interwoven chords and heavenly pads which offer an unforgettable conclusion.
The first remix is supplied by Jay Tripwire who is making his debut appearance on Sound Avenue. The storied 15 year career of the Canadian has seen him maintain a contemporary take on electronic club music both in the studio as a producer and on the dance floor as a DJ. Jay's discography is meticulously kept and showcases releases on Pokerflat and Hypercolor. For his 'Bedtime Stories' interpretation Jay has stripped the original right down and delivered a funky, late night gem of a production. The delicate hypnotic lines, poignant hits and mesmerizing rhythms lead to a wealth of fresh electronics which ignite the track as the main break approaches. Following the tastefully crafted interlude and drummy build the records second act furthers the musical boundaries set by the original with a finale of profound emotional depth. Definitely one of Jay's most magical studio creations to date.
The second and final remix on the release is provided by Wes Straub who is also making his debut on Sound Avenue. Residing in Calgary, Wes Straub has become of Canada's most sought after production and DJ talents. He's headlined clubs across Canada, the U.S. and Mexico as well as the world famous island of Ibiza, Spain. A permanent staple in Calgary's burgeoning nightlife Wes has had the honour of sharing the decks with Markus Schulz, Nick Warren, Jody Wisternoff, Max Graham and Laidback Luke. A pivotal moment in Wes's production career came in 2013 when he was announced as the winner of the Markus Schulz & Ferry Corsten (New World Punx) remix competition. He has since gone on to appear on a variety of top imprints including John OO Fleming's JOOF Recordings and Glenn Morrison's Morrison Recordings. For his 'Bedtime Stories' interpretation Wes has reworked the best elements from the original into a deep trance construction that's full of great emotional energy. The stripped groove lays down a solid foundation and allows the heartfelt melodies to carry the track into the main break. The tasteful re-entry sees the melodies getting washed away and the dynamic groove slowly rebuilding for an invigorating conclusion.
Original is great thnx good luck
nice work on the tripwire mix
Jay Tripwire standout for me! Solid work...
Very nice original
good stuff here!

Review by Mitch Alexander
The Sound Avenue imprint has always stood for excellence and as 2013 draws to a close the label finds itself presenting one of its strongest releases of the year. The labels 29th overall release sees Juan Goya aka Sound Process returning for his seventh overall appearance and a second single. The Buenos Aires resident and long time favourite of Hernan Cattaneo has been one of Sound Avenue's biggest and most consistent producers. Juan's 'Simple Chords' (released in December of 2011) was the labels fourth ever release and he quickly followed that with a remix of Nikko.Z's 'LA' later that very month. Juan's new single is entitled 'The Unthinkable' and it comes with remixes from Pole Folder and MUUI.
Sound Process' last appearance on Sound Avenue was an exceptional interpretation of Andrew McDonnell's 'Patience Of Envy'. It showcased an even deeper sound for the Argentine which has carried through to his newest studio creation 'The Unthinkable'. The foundation of the record is rooted with a character filled set of wobbly bass tones. The rumbling groove gives the composition an immense presence and should prove very effective on the dance floor. Juan's always been great at showcasing very simple elements and making them sound profoundly special. The lead rhythmic tones here are further proof of that; the dynamic tension they provide to the rumbling groove is quite striking and just a touch epic but in the most elegant way imaginable. The momentous build of the record fuses a blend of shuffling drums, striking tones, haunting atmospheres and fresh vocals which lifts the composition to a smooth and classy conclusion.
The first remix is provided by Pole Folder who is making his first appearance on Sound Avenue. The Belgian producer rose to electronic music stardom in 2001 when a string of productions including 'Apollo Vibes' and 'Dust' were signed to John Digweed's Bedrock Records. The label then commissioned Pole Folder to record his first studio album entitled 'Zero Gold' which was released in 2004. Further productions for Frisky Records, Proton and Baroque solidified the Belgian producers place amongst the electronic music elite. More recently Pole Folder helped launch Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic's Kunai imprint with a remix on the labels inaugural release. It turned out to be one of the Belgian producers most talked about productions of the year as it was charted by Guy J, Cid Inc. and Luke Porter. Pole Folder's 'The Unthinkable' interpretation showcases his creative musicality as he's transformed the track into a timeless piece of musical soul. The drum heavy groove delivers the dynamic punch you'd expect and as the gradually building harmonic themes begin to take shape there is a real aura of something special happening. The smooth bassy foundation and emotive chord changes heighten the senses for the introduction of a sultry sax riff. The emotionally gripping and forever enduring line takes the composition into timeless territory and will certainly be Pole Folder's most sought after remix of 2013.
The final remix on the release is provided by Patrik Carrera aka MUUI who is also making his first appearance on Sound Avenue. The Dubai based producer has been one of 2013's top new production talents. MUUI's EPs for Outside The Box, Baroque, Change Audio and Spring Tube have all been exceptional and he's provided a top notch interpretation of 'The Unthinkable' to close the release out. The aptly titled 'Paranoid' mix takes 'The Unthinkable' into deep, dark and dubby territory. MUUI's uncanny knack for creating infectious rhythms and psychedelic landscapes has transformed the track into a real dark room gem. Patrik has really struck a chord with electronic music fans this year and he looks to move into 2014 as a producer on the brink of something huge.
very good all mixes work

REVIEW (BY MITCH ALEXANDER):
The 28th release on Sound Avenue finds label head Dominique Heyninck (Madloch) once again reaching into the far depths of his A&R abilities. Sound Avenue is not only presenting a new artist to the label but also the world as this is the debut release for an exciting new producer from the Netherlands. Patrick Krom aka Daraspa sent a demo into Sound Avenue when they were searching for new tracks for their 'We Are The Future' compilation. Dominique was so blown away by the freshness of what Daraspa had sent in that the only thing that made sense was to offer him an EP release on Sound Avenue. Oh and the amazing thing is Patrick has only been producing for 18 months! Daraspa's debut EP for Sound Avenue is entitled 'Art Of Illusion' and it comes with three brand new original productions.
From the moment the EPs first offering 'Sashke' cuts through the air you can tell there is something special here. The crisp beats, cool hypnotic rhythms and wavering synths all meld together for a hazy blur of electronic energy. As the piece builds the waning atmospheric backdrop and shifting harmonics conjure up some impassioned emotions which sets the piece even further apart. The delicately grinding energy and almost sentimental or nostalgic themes which flow through the composition are what dance floor memories are made of. You hear people talk about electronic soul, well this has that in spades.
The second composition 'Carfre' offers a funkier and more spacious framework. The rolling groove is once again accented with alluring atmospheres and vibrant electronics which heighten the senses nicely. This leads to the main drop which is an expertly crafted interlude of trippy proportions. The deeply mesmerizing break is complemented with a trail of the alien-like vocal lines which sets the stage perfectly for the return of the thunderous groove and ultimately a heavenly conclusion.
The third and final composition 'Kensa' closes the EP out with a tasteful disposition. The well textured beats, wobbly electronics and crisp claps lay down a great vibe early. As the track builds waves of ambience soon engulf the groove for what results in a spiraling vortex of hypnotic rhythms. This leads to an expansive break which slowly weaves its way through the atmospheric tension and waves of wobbly bass tones. Once the kick drops back in the rolling energy builds to a momentous conclusion that rounds the EP out nicely.
Sashke on this one.
solid work, sashke standing out more
Sashke is a nice trip

Review by Mitch Alexander ( www.releasepromo.com )
Crossfade Sounds first label compilation 'Crossing Borders' was released in February of this year. It was a release that really set the label apart in terms their music policy. The refreshing mix of styles and the general unpredictable of what was to come next was what made it sound so fresh. Now almost 8 months and 12 releases later Crossfade Sounds has grown into one of our favourite imprints. Dominique Heyninck aka Madloch looks after the A&R duties and he's done a remarkable job under covering some as yet unheard talent. Each successive release seems to feature fresh and exciting new producers that the majority of electronic music fans would not have been familiar with. The labels second installment of the 'Crossing Borders' series is out this week and it features nine new productions from a selection of producers who are slowly becoming the face of the label. Simon Firth, Donknower, Jabob Seville, Anthony Yarranton, Brian Boncher & Doonstruct, Sean McClellan, Shawn Ruebens, Pedro Sanmartin and Christian Ulstrup all have contributed some outstanding productions here.
There is a wide range of styles and moods explored throughout the collection. Whether it be the percussive, grungy and hopelessly funky 'Black Gold' from Simon Firth or the moody electonica piece 'Two Point One' by Christian Ulstrup the listener is sure to be taken on an interesting ride throughout. The productions of Anthony Yarranton, Pedro Sanmartin and Jacob Seville are really standouts for us and could all be singles in their own right.
Anthony Yarranton has enjoyed a major resurgence this year. The deep sounds that are now coming out of the UK producers studio are perfectly in line with the current electronic music trends and he's been quite prolific this year with 12 releases under his belt already. His contribution to 'Crossing Borders' is entitled 'The Lounge' and it's one of the strongest productions on the collection. The drummy groove, unique vocal stab and energetic sweeps create some wonderful momentum through the first half. Tasteful piano themes get dropped in several times for a refreshing change of pace while the rhythms build mightily through the centre section of the record. The composition comes to a cool climax with some subtle variation in the piano sequences while the dynamic sweeps and pulsating rhythms seem to rise even higher.
Jacob Seville first appeared on Crossfade Sounds with his remix of Tytt's 'Best To Smile' which was released in May of this year. The Spanish producer has contributed his latest original production 'Rocketman' to 'Crossing Borders' Volume 2. For those that loved the unique funkiness of Jacob's 'Best To Smile' interpretation you're going to love 'Rocketman'. The undulating foundation is made up of some of deepest and deadliest bass stabs we've heard in a while. Tweaked just right the funky underbelly carves out a massive groove for the warped sounding electronics to work over. Jacob has created a variety of cool hooks here which smoothly weave their way in and out of the framework. It's the light air of melancholy which really strikes us though; the effortless sounding atmosphere is the perfect contrast to the mean sounding foundation. Brilliant work from Jacob.
Pedro Sanmartin is another producer we discovered this year thanks to Crossfade Sounds. The Spanish producer remixed Dontknower's 'Bobby Cooper' just two weeks ago and now he delivers his first original for Crossfade entitled 'Forthcoming World'. Pedro has crafted a fat, dubby techno track that really rocks. The beefy beats, smooth stabs and rhythmic claps really standout and give the track quite a large presence. Subtle harmonic shifts through the centre section combined with some suitably warped synths more than delivers an intense climax. It's one of the more unique tracks we've heard in a while and further proof that Pedro is destined for great things. Crossfade Sounds continues to amaze us with each successive release. Most electronic music fans are certainly well aware of Sound Avenue which has its place among the progressive house elite but there is some unrivalled brilliance happening with Crossfade Sounds as well. If you're looking for new and exciting electronic music then there is no reason not to be following them. Highly Recommended.

All mixes are really sweet. Original & Mehmet's probably are the versions that grab
me the most but definitely one of the better prog-tinged releases I've heard for a
while. Smartly done.
Superb work from Phil here! Top work from Mehmet on the remix as well! Standout!
Nice sounds, thanks!
