Rhys Maddocks, aka Armitage, has been around on the scene for many years now as a producer and DJ, gaining a lot of support from many of the heavyweight artists. Now for his latest release, he has dropped ‘Plastic Man‘, a Tech House anthem on Vudu Records, with a remix coming in from Doorly on the track.
The original release of this track has already been supported by none other than Annie Mac and this seems to be the case with many of Armitage’s tracks. The artist counts Mark Knight, Groove Armada and Gorgon City as some of his supporters, not to mention the countless other artists. But when you take a listen to his tracks, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise, with the quality of each release allowing him to climb the charts. ‘Plastic Man’ looks to follow suit anyway.
The original from Armitage is an absolute anthem, one for the intimate clubs to really set the dance floor alight. With the electronic vocal cutting through the track and giving it that different, alternative feel, you aren’t sure what to think. But when ‘Plastic Man‘ drops, the energy and power which pours out of the track is huge, the beat really providing this with the sketchy bass line. This is solid work from Armitage and it has that level of groove to allow the listener to begin shifting.
And following on from the original single of ‘Plastic Man’ is the remix from Doorly, who has added intricate changes and details to the track, with the vocal slowed down, and implemented in alongside new background melodies. The groove continues with that bass line, though the drums come through a lot clearer and more noticeable. The energy is raw in this one as well, pouring out of the track and this is also another perfect track for the intimate club. Big ups to both Armitage and Doorly.
