'THE GREENROOM' Guest Mix from MADCAP - January 22, 2020

On WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22nd, STUNNA moves deeper into the month of programming in 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio with an exclusive guest mix from talented producer and DJ MADCAP during this week's session.

UK-based MADCAP (aka ELLIOT PAYNE) began his DJ career in the early 1990s. As the son of a ROCK N' ROLL musician father and piano teaching mother, he was exposed to music from an early age. Being so young was a stumbling block at first, but this changed in the summer of 1995 when he secured a job at local record shop BUZZ RECORDS in HIGH WYCOMBE. This was associated with DJ PULSE and the influential CREATIVE WAX label. Meeting with punters and promoters alike, MADCAP soon found himself being booked up and down the UK for sets, including the infamous SANCTUARY in MILTON KEYNES. One particular highlight of his DJ career so far was winning the MOEVEMENT/TECHNICS DJ competition in 2002 at LONDON's THE END nightclub, as featured in DJ MAG, resulting in several bookings for MOVEMENT at BAR RUMBA and across LONDON. Other notable features on MADCAP include his appearance in THE WEST COUNTRY'S IDJ MAGAZINE in JANUARY 2004 after winning "MIXTAPE OF THE MONTH." The competitions certainly helped and has continued to earn him bookings throughout the UK, and he's also held several long-term residencies in AYLESBURY, BIRMINGHAM, LONDON and OXFORD.

Since 2006, MADCAP has had a string of releases on labels such as GOOD LOOKING RECORDS, MAC II, FOKUZ, CELSIUS, RENEGADE RECORDINGS, SOUL DEEP, CREATIVE WAX and SMOOTH N GROOVE. He has remixed tracks for LTJ BUKEM, NOOKIE/CLOUD 9, TOM & JERRY (aka 4 HERO), and DJ MONITA. This includes CLOUD 9's MOVING SHADOW classic "YOU GOT ME BURNING UP" and NOOKIE's REINFORCED release "A DRUM, A BASS & A PIANO," and, more recently, a remix alongside DJ PULSE of 'FINAL CONFLICT" by THE COMMITTEE on the CREATIVE WAX imprint. Recent releases include "CARBON" on LIQUID V, THE VIBEZ '93 red vinyl project on FOKUZ, and the 'TRANQUILITY' EP on SMOOTH N GROOVE. Forthcoming releases with the late, great ANDY SKOPES (rest in peace) on DISPATCH, including the track "TROUBLE" featuring SINGING FATS, a three track vinyl release on MAKO's UTOPIA MUSIC, a 10" vinyl project with STRETCH's AKO BEATZ, and a 12" vinyl on RANDALL's MAC II label.

CREATIVE WAX, co-run by MADCAP alongside old friend DJ PULSE, was relaunched back in 2013 and together they have released several new tracks, select back cataloque on vinyl, new and retro merchandise as well. Other recent studio projects include working with artists such as FURNEY, DIGITAL, PAUL SG, SOUL STRUCTURE, and FBD PROJECT. Remix work is in progress for PAUL SG and KANTIC CHEMISTRY,with more music set for release on CREATIVE WAX. Currently, you can catch MADCAP on the airwaves during his monthly "CREATIVE WAX SHOW" (last SUNDAY each month from 4-6pm GMT courtesy of the FUTURESOUNDSRADIO site).

Join us this session of 'THE GREENROOM' as MADCAP unveils a special guest set in support of his upcoming 'B-BOY' EP which drops JANUARY 27th worldwide courtesy of the MYRIAD RECORDINGS label. Tune in!
