  • Description Continuing our run of new Australian production talent, Open Records is proud to present the debut full length EP from Maddy Hughes, aka FunkForm. Well-known to lovers of deep, intelligent dance music in Open Records tropical home town of Cairns, we think its finally time for the rest of the world to find out about one of the most exciting acts to emerge from Oz is recent memory.Listening to FunkForm's first full length release its hard to believe weve been sitting on him so long, with a sophisticated, deep sound and a high level of production value and musicality normally associated with artists with years in the game. Truth be told - Maddy has been at it for years and we think its well overdue everyone else found out what hes been up to.Middleman begins this first outing in style, establishing the jazzy brass tones of the release with a sleazy, warped sax, tricky percussion and infectious, subby groove.Sax Thug keeps the aforementioned instrument but opts for a breezier afternoon vibe, yet still with enough drive in the rhythm to please an energetic dancefloor. Deeper still, Obviously Oblivious is the most subtle of all three; closing out the release with its lush atmospheres, swinging groove and a melody that will be running around your head for weeks.open-records.netsoundcloud.com/open-recordsfacebook.com/openrecordstwitter.com/openrecords
