- Product Info -

A journey is worth taking is one made without plans.  So for the instrumentalist, Madman the Greatest was no stranger to exploring through his mind of creative ideas.  

What makes this unique is exhibition of the raw craft that make up his trademark sound.  As expected, the energy flourishes across the speakers of his times perfecting his instrumentations with orchestral sounds, hip hop drums and filtered bass.

At the time of 95bpm beats, the attitude of being alternative began from his admiration for the Steinberg Cubase software. 

Inspired heavily by Erick Sermon; DJ Scratch and Trackmasters, the artist wanted to make music that represents him as an individual creator. 

Panned over 3 Volumes (making this 46 tracks), you may not like everything but you will understand the how far he has developed through his creative journey.
