Mad-Hop Records releases full-length record ‘V/A Mad13’



The experimental and enterprising music label known as Mad-Hop Records has released their long-awaited full-length LP album, “V/A Mad13.” The album is comprised of nine original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been meticulously primed as the flagship LP of the Mad-Hop Records music label, which is introducing the vinyl record album “V/A Mad13” as a global introduction to their staggering hip-hop talents.


On “V/A Mad13” these talents include (but are in no way limited to) Daedelus, Ta-Ku, 813, Pixelord, Koloah, Mike G, H-sik+J(ay).A.D, Thomas White, and Minoo.


“Mad-Hop Records started back in 2009,” writes a Mad-Hop representative, “as a LastFM group for creative artists to connect throughout the world. Since then they have released a number of free digital compilations of electronic, experimental hip hop, dubstep, EDM, glitch-hop, future beats and more.”


The auspicious occasion of the “V/A Mad13” release has been well planned. The cover, showing a black cat in midair, represents the misfortune experienced by members of the Mad-Hop community. The cat’s nine lives are represented by the nine tracks on the record, and the release date of the album has been timed to align with Friday the 13th of September, 2013 (9/13/13). Truly, Mad-Hop intends to tempt fate perhaps more than has any record company in the past.


“There were five parts to the Mad-Hop digital saga,” writes Mad-Hop, “created in a short period of time and representing an individuality of styles for fans of the electronic music stage and scene. These sounds are based on the experimental hip-hop, abstract, and broken sounds: EDM, dubstep, trap, juke and glitch-hop.”


Mad-Hop’s first physical release is due on September 13th, 2013, and can be pre-ordered from their Bandcamp page. Different bundles are available, including LP, CD, and MP3, as well as top-quality tee-shirts.


“V/A Mad13” by Mad-Hop Records is available online worldwide.
