This week, Maddjazz Recordings released their second offering, a 10-track album from DJ, producer, and synth enthusiast Henry Keen.
Maddjazz label head Mike Bloom found chanced upon Henry's music after a long night of online digging, and after several exchanges, the pair agreed a release on Maddjazz was a perfect fit. Outside of the music released under his given name, Henry also makes music as The Room Below, alongside his brother Olly as Soundspecies, and in London-based experimental Gnawa band, Electric Jalaba.
His album for Maddjazz, titled 70’s Baby, is a raw and vibe-filled record that, like the first release on Maddjazz, defies genre boundaries and classifications. Recorded in various locations around inner London, the album continues the spirit and free-form musical policy of the now defunct club Plastic People, fusing a range of up-tempo styles into a feel-good melting pot of swinging grooves.
