Born in a digital age, Mad-Hop began as a Last.FM group. Quickly it found its place in underground music with regular digital compilations. Those early releases already had an international tracklist, made from the finest producers of a global beat scene.
On the Friday 13th, 2013, the Mad Black Cat is gonna bring you this label’s first physical release, involving multiple artists: „Mad13.” A release party is planned for the same day in Amsterdam at Warmoesstraat 129.
Grounded in a party sound, the album offers many different styles: there’s a solid dose of bass music, together with post-trap , post-juke, moombah, and so on. „Mad 13” gathers artists from around the globe: USA, Australia, Holland, Ukraine, Canada, Russia, and Poland. On aboard are Daeadelus, Ta-ku, Pixelord, 813, Koloah, Minoo, Thomas White, H-sik, and J(ay).A.D.
„Things have changed since the days when shiny plastic discs ruled the earth, but that’s not gonna stop us from having our albums on wax and passing CDs around the globe. We’re still on our way… going further into the 21st century’s beat phenomena. Don’t give up – and free your mind! May music and people continue to evolve worldwide.”
Keep it Mad!!!
V/A „Mad13„ is coming soon let’s check the snippet !
Since 2009, we’ve been creating a platform for creative artists from all over the world – people who aren’t afraid to experiment with their music and imagery.” Those adventures take place in the realms of abstract hip-hop, broken beats, idm, dubstep, trap, juke, and glitch-hop. The reason for all these efforts is straightforward: „We’re thinking of how to make the world better.„
Mad-Hop is proud to present our first physical compilation with the release date set for Friday 13th of September 2013. International collection of absolutely incredible tracks from world’s finest experimental beats producers like:
Daedelus - Eccentric, Contagious, Electrifying. These are some words you could use to describe American electronic artist Daedelus (Alfred Darlington). Experiencing the totality his work is only achievable through a large scope. Over the course of a shocking number of LPs, EPs, remixes, and most importantly live improvised appearances; a portrait of an unique artist has been painted in bold strokes.Alfred was born in Santa Monica in 1977 to an artist mother and psychologist father. Musical from very early on, as a child he was classically and jazz-trained in a number of instruments, but his interests were broad and varied – less a prodigy than a renaissance boy whose obsessions ranged from Greek legend to the mountains of Wales. As a 15 year old he finally persuaded his parents to take him to the Principality. Whilst in a YMCA in London he flipped the radio dial, found a pirate radio station and taped some UK rave and hardcore. “It was my first ‘Eureka!’ moment in music,” he says.
Minoo - „All the World” it’s new Minoo album realesed on (Mad-Hop Records). On his second album, the producer from Krakow follows the path he marked out on his debut “White Mice” (Asfalt Records, 2011). Outcome oscillates on the border of experimental hip-hop and electronics introducing a consistent climate. A novelty for fans of Minoo may be invited guests. We can hear not only great Polish MC’s and producer (O.S.T.R., Teielte, ZBRKLKU) but also from those from other countries (Jon Kennedy, DJ.3kc, Oh-Neco, Pixelord). „All the World” is released in two versions – digital , which you can download from Bandcamp, and on exclusive transparent vinyl, which you can buy directly from Mad-Hop .
Ta-ku - The Red Bull Music Academy alumni quickly captured the world’s attention and with the amount of releases he has clocked up for labels like Brownswood, HW&W, Soulection and Project Mooncircle as well as collaborations with Chet Faker and remixes for Justin Timberlake, Flume, The Presets, Hermitude and Snakadaktal, Ta-ku looks set to continue with a crackling schedule set for 2013 already locked in.From an early output of dusty beat samples, this disciple of The Ummah can cut and chop Hip-Hop beats in his sleep, yet it is his current material which shows a dancefloor edge not yet heard from the producer but already clocking up runs on the board like the inclusion of many tracks from Re-Twerk on man of the moment Baauer’s (Lucky Me/Mad Decent) new mix for RINSE FM.Available for DJ sets and Production panels, Ta-ku will soon emerge from the studio to be one of the most formidable live Producer acts in the country.
Mike G - Hailing from Austin, Texas by way of Los Angeles, Mike G has emerged as an up and coming artist in the underground club music scene. His sound draws influences from everything to jersey club, footwork, hip hop and more but is always embodied by his signature style. His releases span an array of labels such as Freshmore, Car Crash Set, and Soukouch Ethnik and have gained support from DJ Rashad, B Traits, Brenmar, Machinedrum, Toddla T,and many more.
Koloah - Dj and producer from Kiev – Dmitry Avksentiev. Producing his own tracks since 2004. For today there are a few releases on Russian and foreign labels like : Cut , Soulection , Hyperboloid , Soukouch Ethnik, Robox Neotech, RAW. Dmitry ceases to delight the audience with their creativity and it shows that in Ukraine there are musical potential, which is able to qualitatively compete with Western producers. His tracks are played on radio stations world-famous BBC Radio1 Extra, OneRecent etc. Played on some European festivals like: Outlook(Croatia), NoBorder(Poland), Supines(Lithuania). His tunes was played by the monsters as Dj Shadow, Pete Tong, B. Trains.. etc. His live performances full of various tricks and improvisations!
813 - a member of RAD comunity. In the past he was a firefighter. 813 played with : Hudson Mohawke , MF Doom , Moby , UZ , Zomby , Onra , Obey City , B. Bravo and more. FEATURED ON : Pitchfork , Mixmag , XLR8R , Yours Truly SF, Earmilk , Indie Shuffle , Sonic Router , Potholes in my blog. Printed magazines : Esquire (Russia), DJ Mag (Russia) , DJ Mag (Spain) , DJ Mag ( Britain ) , DJ Am (Ukraine ) , Hooligan , WTF? Now that the 813 plays in his live programs he describes as a Hypercolor / Hyperdetail R & B, sometimes using children’s synthesizers, sylofon , tape cassettes and others not quite accustomed to the game device, giving it all in the form of positive vibrations.
Pixelord - is Alexey Devyanin. He’s a Moscow-based veteran of experimental music, best-known for his Gultskra Artikler moniker. When we got to know that his new project is about BEATS, it was instantly clear that is has to be groundbreaking great.
His debut four-track EP “Lucid Freaks” brings forth a mixture of spliffed-out 8bit riddims, stumbling Hip Hop beats and a pinch of Euro Dance glam. However unique, the weirdo plastic Pop of Glasgow’s Hudson Mohawke is echoed in his tunes as well as bass-driven digital Reggae, Jahtari-style.
H-sik + J(ay).A.D - Born in Abidjan, H-sik was immersed in traditional African music, especially influenced by his families music,TP Audio Rama. Hip Hop became a big influences for H-sik once living in France. Currently living in The Netherlands he continues to challenge himself by keeping his unique sound, whilst allowing his projects to start as empty spaces, twisting and tweaking his sounds to a place where it satisfyingly ends up ….. Also in Netherlands he met J(ay).A.D a hunter gatherer from deep in the amazon forest of Suriname. Where he protects the rain forest from evil. one day He created a track that was a combination of Juke/footwork with Kawina, Dancehall, Dub and Grime that caused a chemical reaction what erupted from the process giving him Super powers to vanquish all horrible music from the world.
Thomas White - a name that’s quickly catching on. Well know in his hometown of Montreal as one of the founding members of RAW Records and a man known to bring the party. Deep bass, sexy vocals and a signature rhythm that is unmatched by others. Thomas White sets himself apart from the crowd by pushing the boundaries of a multitude of genres. Influences of Grime and Trap stand strongly amongst the vibes of 90s RnB. With multiple plays on BBC Radio 1 and a large local support make sure to keep an eye on the moves this young producer is about to make.

Lomovolokno featured great compilation with his track „Eena” remixed by KRTS.
„As the soundtrack for the lunar eclipse during the night of the 25th of April, we selected some exclusive and unreleased songs from Robot Koch, Submerse, Rain Dog, Sieren, Daisuke Tanabe, and Daixie on this mini-compilation.”
released 26 April 2013
Budapest-born producer Dnte sent over a sliver of his upcoming Moments record, the disorienting and aptly titled „Stoned.” Airy, vocal-referencing pads lead the way down a path of off-kilter beats, wavering synth melodies, and trippy atmospherics, giving the tune a decidedly wonky mood. Dnte’s Moments will be released in digital and vinyl formats via Mad Hop—a label which is also home to the likes of Emufucka, Pixelord, and Fancy Mike, among others—on May 24, but can be pre-ordered now over on the label’s Bandcamp.
