We’re coming up on nine months since DAD’s initial launch and so far we’ve had the pleasure of bringing you androids over forty installments in our exclusive DAD series. The latest comes from Miami-born and Boston-based solo artist, Madeaux. He describes his music as “chopped and screwed electronic soul” and although that might seem like some fixie-bike riding, Williamsburg, Brooklyn-residing hipster bullshit, it’s actually on the money. At times his cuts will play like something straight out of the FlyLo-frequented Los Angeles spot Low End Theory and others like the soundtrack for that Sunday Funday yachting expedition you’ve been planning with that special someone.

For his DAD mix, Madeaux decided to take us on an extra special journey complete with numerous originals and Madeaux-certifed remixes, alongside cuts from producing luminaries like Lunice, Shlohmo, Kaytranda, Ta-Ku, Djemba Djemba, RL Grime, singer-songwriters like Fever Ray, The Weeknd, Lauren Mvula, Lana Del Rey, and PARTYNEXTDOOR., and rappers like Dim Mak‘s Will Brennan, Mykki Blanco, Young Scooter, and of course Drake. The result is an eclectic concoction of heady vibes, futuristic inclinations, and a subtle but intense passion. So turn off that phone, close the lights, grab the tissue box, and prepare to feel all those feels you never knew existed.
