For its 6th release Modelmaker welcomes MadderModes who deliver an EP with 4 quality raw and deep techno cuts. This is the first original material from another artist on the label after a series of Berkson & What releases and high profile remixers guests such as Dana Ruh, Cesar Merveille and Franck Roger. MadderModes a.k.a. Nic Ford and Andy Harper forged their musical relationship in the post-industrial, sound-heavy world of Manchester, UK, where their shared vision for their sound is leading them deeper into atmospheric and melodious techno.

Following the release of their debut LP, 'Keep Up Appearances' on their new label Modelmaker, Dan Berkson and James What draft in Frank & Tony, Dana Ruh, Dorisburg and Alan Doe for remixes. Berkson & What have chalked up many releases on Poker Flat and Crosstown Rebels over the years whilst most recently turning heads outside of their own Modelmaker imprint via singles for Dogmatik and Seth Troxler's Play it Say It. The duo's LP, released in January, marked a new chapter in their production history and has seen support from Josh Wink, Mr G and Skream over the past few months. 'Keep Up Appearances - Remixes' opens with Anthony Collins and Francis Harris' superb Frank & Tony alias taking on 'Seraphim' which results in a tense but understated piece of layered, classic sounding house music while Dana Ruh, fresh from her excellent debut LP on Underground Quality last year, drops an eerie recreation of 'Worship' that draws on spacey synths and unsettling ambience. Dorisburg, known for outstanding material on Sweden's Aniara amongst others, continues a sterling run of form with a rendition of 'Feel Free' which employs soaring chords to fashion a luscious and elevating take on the original. Rounding off the package is Berlin producer Alan Doe, an artist who debuted on Rue De Plaisance in 2014. Doe's 'Worship' remix is squarely dancefloor-aimed with punchy kicks, smokey effects and teasing keys.

Long-established house and techno twosome Dan Berkson & James What are proud to announce the arrival of their debut album, Keep Up Appearances, on their own recently minted Modelmaker label. To be released in December on beautiful double gatefold vinyl and CD, with reworked woodcut artwork by Conrad Felixmuller, it has been a long time in the making but the wait has more than been worth it. Before now, Berskon & What have become synonymous with raw, machine made house and techno with no frills but plenty of heft on labels like Poker Flat and Crosstown Rebels. Their music engages dancers in the head, heart and heel in equal measure and this considered new album proves that once again. Keep Up Appearances was written over the course of 18 months and has been whittled down from over 20 tracks, all made using mostly analogue gear with the usual Roland and Moog boy's toys, whilst the trusty Fender Rhodes, Space Echoes and Moogerfooger pedals are featured on many of the tracks. "At first we had a much more eclectic approach to making the album," says the pair. "But as time went on we found it worked better if we presented only the more electronic tracks together. It's not a straight up home listening album, but it still has a beginning, an end, and a couple of slower tracks that hint at our wider tastes away from the dancefloor." Opening up with the deep space atmospherics of 'Quiet Life' the album immediately transports you to another world. The title track is then a melodically lush and uplifting affair with curious synth patterns ebbing and flowing beneath crisp percussion. Tracks like 'We Search For Answers' combine organic, wooden textures with more synthetic and trippy synth sounds that are as far away from your standard sample packs as can be imagined. Across the course of the album there are dark, moody and emotive pieces like 'Worship' (previously released in extended form on the MDL02 single) featuring Qzen who reads a poem by Patience Agbabi in tantalising fashion as well as heavyweight, dubbed out techno groovers like 'Shadow Theory.' 'Make It True' (of which Seth Troxler will be releasing an extended edit on his Play it Say it label, complete with high profile remixes) is another great collab featuring the vocals of JoJo de Freq, and the track itself is a harmonious, radiant house jam that is humid and human in equal measure. The otherworldly, snaking 'Feel Free' again showcases Berkson & What's ability to coax alluring emotions out of their machines and closer 'Logan Five' wraps things up in suitably spangled, textural fashion. Despite the fact much of this album will work on a dancefloor in the hands of the right DJ, there's an invention and musicality to it that renders the whole thing hugely listenable away from the club. A testament to Berkson & What's analogue invention and fluid ideas, Keep Up Appearances really is a master electronic oeuvre.

Following on from their 'Seraphim / Firebird' single which picked up heavy hitting support from the likes of Seth Troxler, Skream and Steve Bug the multi-talented duo deliver a sublime offering in 'Worship', along with a deeper remix from Lance De Sardi. The impressive and unique artwork accompanying the release is based on a woodcut by What's great grandfather Conrad Felixmuller. 'Worship' pulsates into life through dusty percussion and shimmering atmospherics; Qzen's spoken word vox gracefully dominates proceedings for the most part (the words of which are taken from a poem by British poet Patience Agbabi) while mechanic modulations and a cosmic sh101 hook combine to dish up a warm off-kilter techno cut with an subtle yet infectious groove. Lance DeSardi has built up quite the back catalogue over the last decade on labels such as Black Catalogue & Planet E along with his own imprint Legwork, as a close friend of Dan and James he steps up to remix 'Worship'. His re-imagining picks up the pace somewhat by resonating a snippet of Qzen's vocal uttering "straight to my heart" over shifting percussion, soft pads and whirring atmospherics which lend themselves perfectly to her silky voice in this excellent final offering.
