Music Review: Hadley - Millenium EP [Modula Records]

Today we bring you fresh rhythms from Modula Records which is quickly rising to be a standout label in the UK. It already has welcomed the likes of Jerome C, Ray Mono, Lee Onel, and Artmann (of which we've recently talked here) to their imprint in recent times and their new EP is in the form of a 3 tracker from Hadley. The Manchester-based DJ & producer broke into the scene in 2018 with his remix for Gorgon City's "One Last Song" and so far he signed his music on labels such as Lacuna Recordings and Los Pastores' Oblack Label.

Opener "Millennium" builds intricately as elements are slowly introduced; spacious pads and tight synths entwine perfectly together before a rhythmic crescendo hat takes us straight into the mix. This track has US Garage influences throughout whilst sticking true to its deep roots. The bassline keeps you moving and gives the track plenty of energy as mesmerizing pads combine with shuffling hats and compact snares.




"Every Cloud" sores into the sky’s and into the stratosphere with tight kicks and shaking hats accompanied by nimble use of airy pads that bring a trippy edge to the track. This is brought to life by a blunt bassline with plenty of groovy and soul.



Last but certainly not least ‘Seeing is Believing’ concludes the EP. A nimble garage hook grabs your attention instantly accompanied by a female vocal that stops you in your tracks. Hands up heads down material. The bassline again has plenty of energy and resonates throughout the piece. Perfect dancefloor stuff to round the EP in style.
