Long time DAD favorite and all around outstanding producer, Madeaux premiered his latest ear candy via our pals over at Pigeons & Planes.  His production has honestly been screaming for a top shelf vocal talent to add to his palette for lush synth-heavy sound designs.  And with this release out now on Llucid Records, this desired match appears to be made in heaven now with this collaboration with Safra Nikoto.  All three tracks offer something a little different than the others, but the cohesive feels are all over this release.  Bouncy pop induced funk just oozes all through the opener “Rhinestone Smile.”  Stark ethereal beauty laces all aspects of “Body High,” and the closer (“Set Me Aside”) might be the quiet assassin of the EP with it’s immediate grown folk dancefloor potential and insanely sophisticated flute line.  Basically, this entire package is top notch.
