Race Banyon / Lontalius remix MADEIRA’s “Manipulator”

November 17, 2016 11:59 am

Race Banyon / Lontalius gave MADEIRA’s track “Manipulator” the remix treatment. Head over to Dummy to stream the breezy new mix. “Manipulator” is taken from MADEIRA’s debut EP Bad Humors, released earlier this year.

“Stylistically, it mixes the breezy, head-over-shoulder vocal delivery MADEIRA’s known for, with raindrop synth melodies and the clockwork rhythm style fellow New Zealand producer Race Banyon (bka Lontalius) deployed earlier in the year on this collaboration with DJ Dahi and Ty Dolla $ign. The end result is an affecting piece of work that nonchalantly looks backward before charging forward.”

Brett remixes MADEIRA’s “Come On Thru”

October 10, 2016 11:16 am

New Zealand’s MADEIRA has shared a remix of her gauzy single “Come On Thru” by Washington, DC dream pop outfit Brett.

“[The remix] is inspired by early Weatherall and Oakenfold productions, as well as the textures found on the Moodhut and Future Times labels. The dance mix builds to a grooving bass line which compliments the soaring melodies of the original.” — Mike Coogan (of Brett)

The original “Come On Thru” can be found on MADEIRA’s debut EP Bad Humors, which is out now on Carpark Records. You can pick up a physical copy of the release on the shop or digitally via iTunes.

Having made her debut US performances in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, DC, MADEIRA plays New York City for the very first time tonight at Brooklyn’s Manhattan Inn — don’t miss out. Tickets available here.

MADEIRA’s “Bad Humors” is out today!

September 23, 2016 5:06 pm

“Pain is unavoidable. Hurt is a hurdle of unknowable difficulty. MADEIRA’s Bad Humors is about dealing with those problems by letting go of negative thoughts and embracing the wealth of positive possibilities. After touring the world with Yumi Zouma, the group she co-founded, Kim Pflaum left the band and moved to the seaside city of Auckland, New Zealand. The transition gave her plenty to write about. Thus, Pflaum started writing songs as MADEIRA, a solo project that began years earlier. New to Auckland, she spent her time songwriting—a way to figure out the past to make sense of the future.

The record is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shop, iTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming via Spotify and Apple Music.
