If there is one thing you can’t say, its that Maarten Elen and Jonas Kiesekoms – aka Mumbai Science – have a lack of imagination. At only 24, the duo already has a decade worth of creative experimenting behind them, from making politically incorrect rock music to writing absurd theatrical plays. However, it was only in 2010 that their musical passion culminated into the indie-electro vibes of ‘Mumbai Science’, creating a sound that melts contemporary electro-synths with a vintage techno feel.
In 2010, the duo signed on with the notorious Lektroluv Records, releasing four original EP’s (Woof EP, Ancova EP, Gold EP and Lotus EP). Club hits like ‘Ancova’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Lotus’ got picked up by artists around the globe (2 many dj’s, Crookers, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Tiga and beyond). This put Mumbai Science on the worlds EDM radar. Apart from their original work, Mumbai Science is also building an impressive list of remixes. To date, the duo has been behind remixes for Mixhell (Boysnoize Records), Goose (!K7), Crookers (Southern Fried), Alex Gopher (Go 4 Music), Shameboy (East), Highbloo (Lektroluv) and Jaymo & Andy George (Moda Music).
