Madam Voodoo consists of Cass, 7even and Dr G, whose influences stem from electronica from 1990s including psychedelic trance (psytrance), grunge and punk. One of lead vocalist Cass’s earliest memories is using her grandparent’s dining table as a stage for her rendition of ‘Tits and Ass” from the musical A Chorus Line. Emerging In the early 2000’s Cass became a pioneer of the Melbourne shuffle after her all-consuming love of dance and trance music drew her into the emerging underground rave scene. Songwriter 7Even draws inspiration from the depths of his social conscience to create lyrics and melodies that bring Madam Voodoo’s songs vividly to life. Dr G previously featured in the down-tempo trip hop duo Aventine and, in the late 90s, appeared in a Coke ad shot from a helicopter above the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Electronic Madam Voodoo’s sound, a thumping electronic music with a strong pop sensibility, is composed, recorded and mixed in their own studio. The new single “Rise” has already been play-listed on Australia’s Triple J, Matchbox Radio 24, Pop Shop FM, London FM, Radio ZA Africa and Discover80s.fm. The song was described by Noise Porn Magazine at the Miami Winter Music Conference as an “exciting […]

The pair shared musical influences from Robert Johnson and Howlin’ Wolf, Captain Beefheart and Jon Spencer. Vinny, born in the south of France, toured Europe and the UK with various bands and composed soundtracks for films, including a Sundance favourite LoveSexy. Then Vegas added his pounding voodoo drums to Vinny’s long-cherished new musical venture. Imperfections Summing up his take on their approach, Vinny says: “One of the things that makes rock ’n’ roll great is its little imperfections and riding on the edge of disaster, knowing full well that any second it could all just fall apart.” Their EP ‘Where the Bees Come to Die’, produced by Vinny and recorded in Maako studios, London, contains their first single Revelator, which is already receiving enthusiasm from the music press. Future FM Magazine wrote: “The so-called “two-man team that’s putting the boot back into blues” seem to have recorded a winner of […]
