JPDL & Yogi Beats today release their new video for the track titled ‘Madness’ featuring Rider Shafique. The track is a smooth blend of syncopated dissonance combined with beat laden jazz style fusion-funk and a suave and varied percussion.
The meaning behind the music is the madness in the mental. A perfect fit for this era of isolation. What is mental illness but that final desperation in coping with the seemingly un-copable. What we often forget is that the end is never the end but the segway to a new beginning. This is the brilliance within the beats of ‘Madness’.
Off the back of their critically acclaimed self titled 2019 debut album release, UK duo JPDL (rapper) and Yogi Beats (producer) have returned with a project in the form of new single ‘Madness’.
The story of the track covers an underlying theme of mental health issues, and the possible fall into insanity whilst trying to step up and overcome it. The production is deeply rooted and innovative, whilst at times intense it sits on the backdrop of a driving boom bap vibe and jazzy hook.
UK emcee Rider Shafique features on the track as the voice in JPDL’s head, revealing to him how much music can be healing, and a remedy for his inner ‘Madness’.
The video was shot by longtime collaborators Madbhudda, and is an extended visual piece exploring the dark depths of the mind through distorted imagery, creating something which is both stirring and meaningful.
Having kicked off with this single, an exciting year is ahead for the duo!
