In case your Monday is off to a slow start and you need to get your pulse racing here’s a little shot of musical adrenalin courtesy of Belgian duo Mumbai Science (aka Maarten Elen and Jonas Kiesekoms). The free mixtape download is preparation for Unified Theory - Part 1, their upcoming release via the esteemed Lektroluv imprint on January 9. The release is broken up into three parts. "Part 2" is released on Feb 6 and the final installment drops on March 5. Tiga, Boys Noize and Brodinski are already harping on this release, which says a lot.
The Mumbai Science's quick rise is impressive to say the least. They’ve been doing their thing together since 2010 (year they signed to Lektroluv Records) and have released four original EP’s (“Woof,”“Ancova,”“Gold” and “Lotus”). Which indecently got picked up rapidly by artists like 2ManyDJs, Crookers, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize and Tiga to name a few). Apart from their original work, the two are building an impressive list of remixes, as well. Just wrapping up treatments for Mixhell (Boysnoize Records), Goose (!K7), Crookers (Southern Fried), Alex Gopher (Go 4 Music), Shameboy (East), Highbloo (Lektroluv) and Jaymo & Andy George (Moda Music). The two show no signs of slowing down either; upcoming schedule for the next couple of months is not one, not two, but three original EPs.
With this trilogy, I feel like we experimented with genres like new beat, future techno, acid and electro... In a way, I think we tried to contemporize everything we liked from our youth... We just made something we think is quite cool
We’re in agreement… quite cool, indeed. If Mumbai Science isn’t already there, their inclusion on the world’s EDM radar is guaranteed for 2012.
