Madeaux returns to Fool’s Gold for ‘Club Demons’ EPMadeau Best Behaviour 1

The underground sound-smith, Madeaux, recently dropped his three-track Club Demons EP on A-Trak‘s Fool’s Gold imprint. “Love” with BRUX was the final piece to the project, nudging a dampened club atmosphere through ominous vocals and that strong bass house backing fans know and love from the LA-based producer.

Previously released were singles “I WANT YOU” with classic synth-pop melodies and a weighty bassline, and the EP title track featuring Dances With White Girls with a more plucky, pop attitude.

With late night warehouse-ready hitters, Club Demons proves to be a trek through haunted audiovisual chaos, aiming to thrive in the lowest depths of club culture for those fiending for the early morning outing.

Underground sound cultivator and LA-based producer, Madeaux, released the second taste of his Club Demons EP, “I WANT YOU.” The track begins with a strong house backbone polished with classic synth-pop melodies shimmering in the wings. The track builds to a confident and weighty bass line that works in tandem with the hefty house arrangement.

The EP is set to be released on A-Trak‘s Fool’s Gold imprint on August 16. Madeaux debuted the news with the release of the title track that features Dances With White Girls—a proper booze-infused and sweat-soaked house heater.

With warehouse-ready hitters, Madeaux’s EP proves to be a journey through devilish audiovisual mayhem, and as the EP creeps closer, it looks like it’s bound to brighten the darkest of dance floors.

Few artists have defined the modern underground sound as much as LA resident Madeaux, who continues his string of booze-infused and sweat-soaked house releases with his latest heater, “CLUB DEMONS.” For the new original cut, the Fools Gold standout summons Dances With White Girls, who garnishes with the beat with a vocal line that’ll possess clubbers well into the after-party, where seeds for the promiscuous collaboration were originally planted.

“[Dances With White Girls] and I had wanted to do something for awhile because we always would run into each other at after hours and kinda side eye like, ‘I been seeing you everywhere.’” Madeaux says to Dancing Astronaut on the release. “Finally got down and did it with the intention of writing the song about after partying, [the] tentative title was ‘Party in Private.’”

Whether it’s partying in private or clubbing with demons, the latest Madeaux fix is all but ready to start an after-after hours in the Uber on the way home. “CLUB DEMONS” is the first track of an upcoming EP of the same name, the full release is expected to drop on Fools Gold Records on Aug 16.

Exclusive: Madeaux wields his unearthly, house-driven devices on Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Black Magic Woman’

Exclusive: Madeaux wields his unearthly, house-driven devices on Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Black Magic Woman’Madeau Press Shot

An equal parts spectral and seductive presence runs through Madeaux‘s remodeling of the ubiquitous, Santana-adopted, Fleetwood Mac original, “Black Magic Woman.”

Though the track eclipsed the charts under the prestige of legendary guitarist, Carlos Santana’s 1970 release, the consequential inspiration behind Madeaux’s rework, he says, comes from Fleetwood Mac’s initial, 1968 issue, which he reveres for its enigmatic, “smoldering quality.”

“I don’t generally listen to house when I’m looking for inspiration because then I’d have the same energy as everyone else making house…” Madeaux tells Dancing Astronaut of the release. “I sought to bring [Fleetwood Mac’s] flavor to the dancefloor, whether on the poolside at sundown, or the after hours when the mood is right.”

Madeaux leaves his indelible, delicious kiss of death on his “Black Magic Woman,” providing his own sultry vocals, adding subtly funky plucks, and an oscillating bass, to boot, that shakes as if it’s all at once soaking wet and scalding. The delectably danceable, house-driven rework will make a devil out of you, too, if you’re not careful.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


Korean pop star teamed HYO up with 3LAU for the sassy “Punk Right Now” in late 2018, drafting both English and Korean iterations. Months later, the track has been given a bold rework by Madeaux, who’s put his signature dark, bold stamp on it with a booming bassline and formidable builds. His steamy style works effortlessly with HYO’s unabashed vocals, and the result is a remix that’s equally gritty and cohesive. Madeaux’s rework is part of a three-track remix EP also includes takes by KUURO and Raiden.

Dutch producer Maduk has returned with a brilliantly diverse three-track EP via Liquicity Records. In the EP’s opener, “Go,” Maduk teams up with vocalist Lachi to craft a euphoric drum & bass piece that delivers the listener directly to the heavens with spirited horns and soaring vocals. “I started working on ‘Go’ one year ago and the instrumental gave me so much energy and happiness right away,’ Maduk says in a release. “I have never recorded this many brass instruments (trumpet, saxophone, trombone, tuba) for a track before, so it’s very exciting!”

French artist Icy Lust has gone through a huge life transformation over the past year. The former web developer quit his job and moved to Paris study sound engineering at Abbey Roads Institute, something he calls one of the best choices of his life. “Lots of things started to get clearer,” he told DA. “Got surrounded with inspiring people, lost myself in deeply listening to music that enhanced my moods. I started to really ask myself what do I love, feel, and what kind of stories my brain builds through those records. It has been a whole introspection, and still is.” His newest track, out now via Tasty, takes place at this turning point. It’s a beautifully and deeply introspective piece, comprised of moody melodies and lush vocals. His future knows no “bounds.”

Essenger‘s clear knack for production and knowing what “works” shines brighter and brighter with each release. The Kansas City artist has only been releasing music under this moniker for less than a year, but he’s already made a name for himself with innovative originals and unique takes on songs like deadmau5‘s “Strobe” and WRLD‘s “Rooms.” His latest is an original called “Afterburner,” which he’s branded as a “synthwave/alt.” The single is much more than either of these classifications, however. He builds slowly, with emotive vocals and twinkling melodies. The chorus, however, takes off like a rocket, with a powerful guitar melody and racing synths. It’s a gorgeous blend of nostalgia-inducing synthwave and something that’s all Essenger’s own.

Party Ghost‘s latest is a brief but satisfying number, packed with all the elements that comprise an ear-catching piece by the California producer. “Thinking About You” marks his first release since December’s “Wraith,” which was a decidedly darker piece. This latest one has a wistful and dreamy atmosphere to it, sprinkled with lighthearted melodies and subtle bass. Distant vocals of “I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you” weave in and out between a bouncing beat, creating the easygoing environment of someone caught in a daydream. Its message is simple and sweet.

Goshfather puts his own disco-infused twist on Madonna‘s “Like a Prayer” in his new remix, and Liquid Stranger teams up with CloZee for the eerie “Ceremony.” Kill Paris debuted his new album for Valentine’s Day, touting collaborations with the likes of Fatherdude, Big Gigantic, and more, and Armin Van Buuren tugs at listeners’ heartstrings via “Lonely For You” with Bonnie McKee.
