The Way of Grace
I felt inspired to elevate my Saturated Sound and create a set that was a complete departure from the dancefloor. Anonymous Source is for sitting back, diving deep and exploring.

As my first new mix of 2014, I used a few new techniques to creatively change things up a bit for myself, including live instrumentation, heavier sampling, and more granular synthesis.
“Never was alone. Never was afraid.”
“She lights a fire in the garden above.”
“All the world is shining around you.”
It’s exciting to see techno making a comeback, returning to the dark emotions of its roots. After experiencing some amazing parties recently, several top DJs have reinvigorated and inspired me as an artist. This mix honors those DJs.
The Village is a deep, tech-driven offering with several interesting twists and turns as well as a few ‘Madoka Clouds’ for good measure. The mix was recorded exclusively for the Frisky Radio Loves NYC feature on Frisky Radio.
Although partially a live recording from Endo-Exo in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, the set was re-recorded back in NYC based on the original sounds from the August 8, 2008, party. Yes, that’s a 08-08-08 party!
Bliss Tech at its FINEST! Resurrekted is a bouncy but steady story that evolves into a twisted, tribal, techno monster before finally sliding into a stark musical abyss.
To me, Life at Midnight is sublime. The transitions between songs sound incredibly smooth.
Clocking in around three hours, the more I listen to The Second Room the more I realize this particular story can actually be divided into three 1-hour increments and still sound like three individual mixes.
First Time Static is a lush set I recorded as both my Jun. promo mix and also exclusively for DJ and producer Chloe Harris for her return to internet radio.
Unreleased live recording from Lifeball 2007 party (Vienna, Austria).
Purpose is my twisted April 2007 promotional mix. It’s considerably brooding at times, turning absolutely deep, dark, dirty and downright fierce towards the back half!
Another Hour is a dark club mix, exploring a more subtle, deeper path.
Unreleased live recording from New Year’s Eve, 2006 in NYC.
I sat down to create Yesterday’s Gone with specific emotions already floating around in my mind. I recorded several killer mash-ups prior to making the full mix and incorporated two of those into this mix.
This is the second of two live recordings from the Atlantic in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
I originally recorded Feels Like This exclusively for Jacksonville promoter Patty Hyun for her birthday. This mix was a free giveaway at her August 23 party.
Listening to Modified Mind again, it seems incredibly moody to me. I love the pace of this mix. Although it’s a bit slower and steadier than my previous mixes, it pops with massive amounts of creative crunch.
Unreleased live recording from Club Mania in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria.
This mix is the first of two unreleased live recordings from the Atlantic in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
Clocking in at nearly three hours, 8-Bit Hangover tells an intimate story. A deeply rich first hour gradually gives way to a harder, darker, more tribal-infused second act.
Cause To Move is a trippy, gliding mix recorded exclusively for Jonathan Ojeda’s Proton Radio show.
Aerosplice is a relatively House-oriented mix that strays into different directions. The mix perfectly captures Madoka’s spacious, big room production flair.
One of the earliest promotional Madoka mixes to be featured on a radio broadcast.
An early Madoka performance recorded live at MetaStudio I.
