Madato's history with the label heads scrolls back to 2009 when Magda included his track, The Night's Rumours in the mix for the Fabric 49 compilation. One year earlier, after being inspired by Troy Pierce's set at a party in Ibiza, Madato began cranking out numbers in that style, subsequently leading to his first album and EP releases on the label.
Portraits is the name of the new EP inspired by a book written by Italian novelist, Alessandro Baricco. All tracks are recorded with external so urces and self-produced sounds using korg synths, pieces of a drum kit, a guitar and a modular rack to create an organic listening experience.
Overall, Madato aims to stir up the listener's imagination in a fictional, cinematic sense; it's a mini-soundtrack to recreate a certain environment, scene or episode. In other words, sit back, close your eyes and drift away.
