5 Awesome Things That Makes Madboy/Mink Stand Out
Described as the Terror Twins of Funk and Swing Madboy/Mink have become a brand for Electronica in India. It’s a collaboration of Imaad Shah and Saba Azad who came together when Shah toyed with the idea of a Music Project when he heard Azad sing.Based out of Mumbai, India, these two in a short time gained Notoriety for their Electric Live sets, both at big festival stages as well as underground parties across the country.
1. Entirely UNIQUE Style of Music
Led by a vibe where Old-School Funk and Disco meets a ’30s Harlem swing style. Cabaret, swing jazz, musical theatre, dirty electro, synth funk – all these are very much part of their landscape, but these post-modern kids are also very influenced by post punk and new wave, and so the Music they end up with is none of the above, but something that is uniquely theirs.
2. Honest Music
“We guess we do let our kinkier, more honest sides loose while working on a tune and that’s what makes the song very much ours – something no one else could produce but us.” Quoted Madboy/Mink in a recent Interview with NH7.
This Duo believes in feeling what they produce which is not the case with Every Musician.
3. No Category Boundation
The Duo doesn’t really fit into the category that a lot of contemporary Electronic artists are a part of, or for that matter, any other specifically defined category at all which makes them go to the depth of exploring their Music in any Direction.
4. Knowing their audience well!
Seems these two have done a deep study of their Listeners.Going by the mood of their listeners,the two have made songs of every Mood- sometimes ecstatic, sometimes dark, sometimes sexy.The Duo tries evoke eras. “We like to hit the listener with a shot in the arm- like a drug that brings on an intense experience. For all this and more, modern listenership is so much about timing. The average listener now is of course, discerning and we like to respect that intelligence – some of our tunes work first thing in the morning, some of them work while spacing out in the afternoon, some of them work at a debauched after party- our listeners, just like us, operate at different levels- and we don’t want to deny them our music at the moment they absolutely must have it.” Seen quoting in an Interview.
5. Experimenting with their Music
They create Music which is harmonically Beautiful. They take a style,Batter it with Dirty Electro and create Amazement. Realizing the fact that their idiom is really in their live performance these two focus more on live Synthesisers, Guitars and of late, the Swing vocal harmony style that is reminiscent of World War-era swing bands which blurs the lines between eras and styles.
