[Look Back] Watch Out For: Mad Tribe


Surprising no one, this third title in the series is awarded to a name that has caught my attention this year, a name I think you should add to your watch list in 2017. For the first time since 2013, this goes to a producer, rather than a label. Exciting stuff, eh?

Judging by what other folks have said, you might expect me to pick Factor B or Peter Steele, which have done some fantastic stuff in 2016. By this point though, you must’ve figured out I was never going to go for the obvious pick. I might be crazy, but nowhere near as crazy as the winner(s) of this title: Mad Tribe.

This bonkers collab was struck between two producers who have been at it since the mid to late 90s: Max Peterson (Mad Maxx) and Olli Wisdom (Space Tribe). Their combined experience in the psychedelic scene is immediately noticeable in the tracks they’ve put out this year. From the overall vibe to the hilariously trippy artworks (courtesy of Mikki Wisdom), all of it screams Psy in the best possible way.

Mad Tribe started the year in full force with their wonderful take on the X-Dream rework for E-Rection‘s Out Here We Are Stoned. Keeping the pedal to the metal, they got their satellite dishes Tuned In Perfectly to capture the Alien Hoax as it was unfolding. After all was said and done, they celebrated with an LSD Party, which, soon after Kicking In, went into full Meltdown. Quite the busy year, then.

Much like the top of that LSD Party artwork, I have this giant grin on my face as I’m blasting these tunes at full chat. This has probably been the post I’ve had the most fun putting together this year.

I hope you folks are as eager as me to see the madness continue in the coming year, but until then, I’ll leave you with these:
