MAF MADDIX

Riffing off his arithmetic-themed moniker, introspective wordsmith Maf Maddix entitled his darkly dreamy 2013 single, “Squaring the Circle.” Using the ancient, insoluble geometric riddle as a metaphor for refusing to capitulate to impossible odds, Maddix crafted a track as mind-blowing as a spiral nebula, and as deep as a well to Hades. It’s par for the course for polymath Maddix, also known as cosmic broken-beats and dubstep artist Brother Aten, and as one-third of high-energy, mind-expanding hip-hop balancing act NDangR Species. Like NDangR, Maddix solo specializes in philosophical spoken-word flow, more exploratory sooth-saying than poetry slam bombast. With experimental production that accentuates sounds as much for their texture as their rhythm, Maddix’s words seem to emerge from our collective subconscious — pensive, moody, organic and a little ghostly.
