Madloch & Subnode – Abyssal [Crossfade Sounds]

6 min read

The relaunch of Crossfade Sounds continues with label boss Madloch collaborating with Subnode on 'Abyssal'. Being paired since the summer of 2018, the creative synergy between Madloch & Subnode has continued to grow. The Belgian duo have released three originals and a remix since beginning their collaborative partnership. With a sound that sits comfortably in the creative space between house and techno, the duo now continue their creative journey with a new single alongside remixes from Sascha Dive and Anton Lanski.

Continuing to stretch their sonic boundaries, Madloch and Subnode deliver their deepest and most atmospheric creation to date with 'Abyssal'. Anchored by a rich foundation; it's warm, drone-like groove proves mountainous, as dubbed out rhythms underpin gaseous effects and effervescent percussion. Building subtly across it's eight-minute running time, the main break furthers the narrative with drifting fragments and muted beats adding just the right blend of anticipation and tension, before melting down into a meditative finale. Madloch and Subnode have also included a reprise for the more adventurous DJs and astute connoisseurs.

The first interpretation of 'Abyssal' is provided by Sascha Dive who makes his label debut. Hailing from Frankfurt, the German artist has carved out a unique place in the electronic underground since first appearing 2007 with releases on Akbal, Cocoon, Drumpoet Community, Plastic City, Soma Records and his own Deep Vibes imprint. Now making a welcome debut on Crossfade Sounds, Sascha provides an inspired rendition of 'Abyssal'. Aptly coined 'Mystic Dub', the German artist ups the tempo while maintaining the unique atmospheric resonance of the original. Ghostly vocal wails and vivacious rhythms marry wonderfully atop a robust groove, while neatly manicured percussion pushes momentum forward to a heady finale. Deep yet impactful, it's Sascha's compelling architecture which ultimately makes for such a fascinating journey.

Rounding out the release and providing the second and final interpretation of 'Abyssal' is Anton Lanski. The Russian artist owns an impressive resume having showcased his music on Kollektiv Turmstrasse's Musik Gewinnt Freunde and Pablo Bolivar's Seven Villas. Now bringing his deep ethos to Crossfade Sounds, the Izhevsk resident provides a stunning take on 'Abyssal'. Punchy kicks and mounds of bulbous bass anchor the piece, while trailing effects and dynamic percussion fill in the framework. Misty atmospheres soon fade to prominence, initiating an expansive break. Murky and mysterious, the centrepiece shifts the narrative into surrealist territory, further elevating mood as the beats drop for a tripped-out finale. A stirring interpretation from the Russian artist, capping off an excellent release for Crossfade Sounds, who continue their inspired resurgence.
