DJ Madd – Flex’d (Ikonika Remix) / Detroit Skank (BOKA028)

Posted in developments, release news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2010 by Boka Records

Released on 31st May 2010 is a brand new single from DJ Madd.

Madd is on a heater right now with support for his music coming from all angles, and so the time is right to release argueably his biggest and most supported track ‘Detroit Skank’, first showcased on Skream‘s ‘Stella Sessions’ radio show on RinseFM.
It’s a beast of a roller which expertly incorporates dub and techno influences and the bassline on this one is absolutely sick, the likes of Headhunter, Skream, RSD and Akira Kiteshi have been utlising it in the raves to devastating effect.

On the A-side of the single is a post-garage relick of ‘Flex’d’ (the original was released on DJ Madd’s ‘Better With You EP’ – BOKA020) by Hyperdub‘s finest, Ikonika.
It was first showcased by Alleycat on her highly successful Kokeshi Podkast series and is currently garnering support from Mary Anne Hobbs and Martyn. It’s certainly a musical departure for the Boka camp but 2010 has been all about diversifying and showcasing all styles within the realms of bass music.
