And the flood of talent from Eastern Europe continues! From the beautiful city of Saint Petersburg, D-Mad is attracting all the right attention and even inspired his fellow Russian producer Arty to remix She Gave Me Happiness. A vivid example of just how much talent is left to discover, this rising artist is highly adept at contrasting soft melodies with pounding beats. Taking his latest release for example, Solidarity leads you in with unstoppable electro basslines before it cuts you down with a massively epic breakdown.
Peering into historical tunes, D-Mad brought Jahala’s voice back to life with a new take on Why by FKN. Injecting some raw power into the classic, the memorable original was featured on Armin van Buuren’s A State Of Trance 2007 compilation. Winning favor in his home country, his anthem FMG became the official tune of the Future Music Gallery Festival in Saint Petersburg last year.
