MADDAM is an electro-funk duo composed of American singer Madafi Pierre and Swiss producer Roccobelly. This chance encounter, made possible with the help of drummer Laurent Biollay (who now plays with them), has made it possible for them to express their vision of Funk from an original point of view.
MADDAM has an eclectic palent, with influences of New Wave and Electro-pop, via P-Funk and Miami Bass. The creation process involves a production using vintage machinery such as 12 Bits Samples and FM Synthesis that takes the soul component to another level. This recipe allows them to create a fun and poetic universe that not only makes you want to dance, but seduces you all at the same time.
Le projet MIND TWERKING
The recording and production of this album went through several stages. First, demo recordings were done in Roccobelly’s studio. Then trough the help of Thomas Gloor, who was assisted by Renaud Nasch, the songs were properly arranged. Each song was recorded and mixed at AKA Studio, where musicians such as Mimmo Pisino (bass), Baptiste «Bouli» Amstutz (guitar) and Laurent Biollay (drums) also lent a hand on a few tracks. Once the songs are mastered, the artist RG will take brush to canvas and create an exciting and colorful album cover, almost looking like fireworks made with paint.
We’re almost there
We’re almost at the finish line! This first opus will be presented to the world in February 2016, with a release party at the «Bourg» in Lausanne and a series of electrifying concerts.
