Few artists pull off the sound Mumbai Science does and do it well. Part techno, part house, and a whole lot of bass, the Belgian duo blends the sounds from a variety of electronic genres to create something completely new. Starting last April, Maarten Elen and Jonas Kiesekom began producing a series of monthly mixes, the Mumbai Science tapes, chock-full of that industrial tech noise that’s become their namesake. Today we have an exclusive on tape number 10 – a haunting journey through space and sound that traverses the electronic spectrum. The mix comes complete with all the bells and whistles you’ve come to expect from these guys, beginning with their newest track, “Impact,” out today on Beatport.

The Impact release includes the original track, as well as two remixes, one by John Roman and the other by The Advent & Industrializer. Like Mumbai Science’s own artistic vision, the tracks represent a wide and varied range of music: the original definitely dips more towards electro house, with more pronounced drops and a stronger bassline; John Roman delivers a deconstructed edit where a lot of the magic comes from the spaces between the noise; finally, The Advent & Industrializer serving up a spacey remix that seems to take the middle road, between the two other tracks. Get a copy of the EP now and make sure to download tape 10 for later listening.
