Finally we are pleased to announce Kyoto based beatmaker Madegg’s new album Tempera. The 19 year old artist is a conspicuous presence in the beat/dubstep scene in Japan. He made this album in his bedroom while he was cut-off from any outside distractions like music, internet, and information.
The album inspired by tempera, a fast-drying, painting medium, features cutting edge beat-music that mixed ground accumulated melancholic sounds. Layered, tricky beat production runs out from the usual characteristics of his work along a more temporal axis. Post-dubstep, electronica, breakbeats, wonky, hip-hop, and experimental, he digests several music styles. His mind and music are like a delightful sponge absorbing sounds and textures. He presents us with something original and unique and there is definitely more to come from this amazing artist.
We feel this is only the forefront and that this is the birth of a new talent and generation.

にわかに盛り上がりを見せる国内ビートシーンにおいて一際異彩を放つ早熟の才能Madegg。海外レーベルとの親近性も感じられながら、驚異のスキルと抜群の吸収力によって強烈な個性を確立する、高知出身の若きアーティストによるデビューアルバムが遂に完成しました。
自身のベッドルームに籠って作られたという本作は、タイトルともなっている1500年以前の絵画技法であるTemperaのイメージからインスパイアさ れ、細かく積み重ねられたメランコリックな音のレイヤー、独特の時間軸から繰り出されるトリッキーなリズム・プロダクションが交差する、先鋭的なビート・ ミュージックとなっています。
ポスト・ダブステップ、エレクトロニカ、ブレイクビーツ、ヒップホップ、エクスペリメンタル/音響など、様々な音楽を19歳の若さで咀嚼・消化して吐き出された奇跡のハイブリット・ミュージックに、私たちは新たな才能の誕生を予感するでしょう。

Press Quotes

Exquisite fine detail accumulates around beats which seem to emerge completely naturally from low-down sub-tones. Everything wraps itself around you, coming from all directions, whispering in your ear and tickling you in places you didn’t know existed. – Mixmag (Album Of The Month!)

Tempera is unlikely to go mainstream but for beat-enthusiasts and those that appreciate the complexity in what, to others may seem simple, even boring, this album is heavenly. – The Pigeon Note

Madegg seems to coat everything he does in stardust, with a playful spirit that shines brightly through his sparse arrangements. – LiveForTheFunk

Rest assured, this isn’t pop, at times it is barely even music at all, but those that relish listening to Aphex Twin will surely get a kick out of this as it tugs at the ethereal soundscaping you would expect of Sigurd Ros, tumbling both influences over in some kind of Twin Peaks-esque nightmarish delirium. – Glasswerk Magazine

a bit too much of a good thing…an excellent soundtrack for the early morning, the kind of soul-cleansing music that washes over you and helps ready you for the day’s challenges – Textura

It’s a bright and accessible album with strong melodies and enough variety to coax listeners back into its world for further listens. – Shout4Music

Tempera sounds a lot like Flying Lotus’ downtempo grooves, the hush and hum of warm analog synths evoking the kind of nostalgia only possible in the midst of exponential technological progress; the kind that looks back on Boards of Canada as the “historical” past. – InYourSpeakers
