Never a day goes by without some new label being born somewhere in the world. Fresh out the block is the Mad Monkey imprint, which kicks off here with some slamming house cuts from an Italian pair of producers. Those producers are Allen & Filix and they really impress here with their two fresh cuts.

Delight is the pick of the bunch for me. It has spraying synth lines adding a sci fi feel to the skipping garage drums. It makes for real energy and some moody vocals add a sense of eeriness that finishes it off nicely. Camels is the opener here and is a more rocking, tough cut old school house jam. With solid drums and slinky metallic perc it is the sort of thing to make you sweat. As such both of these tracks mark a great debut for this hot new label.
