When searching for innovation in the electronic world, some artists continually appear as mainstays for inventive works that captivate listeners' attention. Such is the case for Maarten Elen and Jonas Kiesekoms, the Belgian duo who make up Mumbai Science. My first introduction to their non-conformist ideology came from a brief, but powerful, introduction to "Gold" during Boys Noize's set at HARD Summer 2011. From there the pair went on to "Unite" and "Impact" before beginning the acclaimed Tapes series, which offered up a smorgasbord of sound they described as "French touch and electro-clash to – more recently- nu-rave."
"Déjà Vu", their most recent single, drops on May 5th via Lektroluv and will be followed by Mumbai Science's full debut album of the same name on June 16th. An experiment in sound, where sounded synth blasts call out over circulating metallic runs, the track shares an equally interesting video, which came out this Monday. Following the daily difficulties of a misunderstood, and probably troubled, man, you have to experience the visuals yourself, just like any Mumbai Science track.
Listen. Watch. Enjoy. Repeat.
