Label honcho Madd Rod delivers Dystopian Desert, his first studio album. Part a tribute to his roots, part a promise for the future: the album is the product of years of growth and appears as a solid approach to what some could call ‘Desert House’.
After years developing his sound, the artist sets a statement in this adventure as a storyteller, exploring different melodies in the Arabic scale in a gamut of ambient and club-ready tracks inspired by arid landscapes.
Rodrigo expertly makes use of live guitar jams recorded by Azul (Duarte Igreja) to add a real element to the otherwise fully electronic compositions, adding a twist to the Melodic House and Techno the artist had released previously.
To add to the uniqueness of the 12-track album, the artist challenged the talented Rita Morais to oil paint her vision of the album on a square canvas that ended up as the artwork to this eclectic, mystic and exotic sound experience.
Dystopian Desert comes premiered by a handful list of partners (A-Z): Bangalore Rave Community, Club Mood Vibes, Deep House Lisbon, Electronic Groove, melodic techno tune Mixmag Turkey, Planet Ibiza, Raven Musik and Tanzgemeinschaft. You can listen to the full tracks in our Soundcloud playlist:
