Lille native Madben is a renowned producer with releases on Astropolis, COD3 QR, Trunkline, and Ellum. The latter plays host to his latest work as he returns to Maceo Plex's celebrated label with a unique twelve-track album this April.

February will see the introduction of the first single "Circuit Breaker". Packed with chugging moody acid techno from the outset - its minimalist approach leaves the floor open to a head-turning display of modulating analog musicality and ominous resonance, carving out a gritty late-night cut that stands out from the crowd.

I made this track in a very short time, which was unexpected. It's a favorite of mine; I don't think I will ever get bored of playing it

The single comes with a heady remix from New York producer Avision, a regular on Ellum. Here he works some pace into the original with a bouncy bassline and a killer breakdown, turning this into a peak-time dancefloor cut. "Circuits Breaker" is a superb taster for the long player ahead and another electronic gem from the on-point Madben.
