Trap Door "Chaka"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Manchester-based DJ and co-founder of the city's Big People Music club night/record label Madam X has put together a new compilation, Kaizen Movements, which collects a diverse range of tracks from the likes of Murlo, Dark0, Timbah, and Sudamin, among others. Featured here is Mancunian producer Trap Door's contribution to the 10-track effort—an airy excursion into forward-leaning club territory, "Chaka" places sharp synth stabs and fine-grain loops atop an imbibing procession of brisk rhythms. The impressive turn from the burgeoning UK talent can be grabbed on its own below, or along with the rest of the Madam X-curated, free-to-download Kaizen Movements compilation after the jump.
