From about age 18 on, he's been producing music himself. With his sound card, back then a Maxi Sound Home Studio with 16 MB Sample RAM, he mostly dedicated his time and effort to Jungle and Drum'n'Bass. This is probably when he came up with the Name Madstyle, trying to express the influence of the screaming, metallic FM sounds as a bizarre element of his compositions at that time. The content of his productions has changed greatly since then.
The monstrous visions of the future of his first compositions merely remain in name, and if 'Mad' still has a meaning now, it rather leads to more order and structure. Madstyle's releases are now at once straightforward and full. Elaborate real-time-edits often lead Madstyle to and beyond the limits of his computer, thus not standing out too much while listening. Stylistically, he prefers scratches, beat flows, breaks, time-stretched voices, catchy and fluffy melodies and of course breakdowns in all shapes and sizes.
His first release was an enjoyable ambient track on the Naturtrueb EP on Placid Records. Incidentally, two other tracks can be found on the Suburban City compilation as well as the Clothcraft compilation wo/men need music vol.03. With his Releases at Phonocake Netlabel and Kahvi Collective, he joined the netmusic community. External Links: Madstyle@Myspace Read more on Last.fm.
