Having both been introduced to the label, MAD M.A.C. and Flaremode team up for their first full original release on Smash The House with “Madagascar“.
MAD M.A.C. were drafted in to remix ANGEMI’s “Show Your Flame” while Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s edit of their track with Jamis “Renegade Master” was a huge success, while Flaremode have already made their presence felt on the label this year with recent Jean Marie and Matt Joe collab “Dolci Pensieri” dropping on sister label Generation Smash earlier in February, coming alongside performances at the likes of Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Ushuaïa for the pair of artists.
“Madagascar” is fast-paced from the start, propelled forward by a repetitive vocal that is teased before being fully unveiled just before the drop, as fans are told “Don’t touch that stereo”. The drop is announced with a ripping synth that keeps the track moving, before the beat switches in time signature to a half time rhythm. A huge synth lead debuts on the main drop, giving the track it’s hands in the air moment before reverting back to the screaming electronic hook.
Both MAD M.A.C. and Flaremode have been making strides both on their own and collaboratively, with support on recent releases coming in the form of juggernauts such as Lost Frequencies, David Guetta, R3hab and Steve Aoki, and with the seamless combination of musical minds on display for ‘Madagascar’, the number of high-profile admirers is only set to increase.
