Mumbai Science proudly presents "Déjà Vu", the first single of their same-titled debut album. "Déjà Vu" takes you on a trip to a grim future, where partying is reduced to handing out business cards and personal trainers are the new superstars. Guest vocalist April Rose delivers a casual, slightly blasé recording, bringing a fictitious can't-be-bothered woman to life, who roams in the world of the economic elite. Although dealing with heavy themes such as moral decline and corporate totalitarianism, Maarten Elen & Jonas Kiesekoms bring their message with their usual quirky panache.

The Belgian duo, mostly known for their club hits 'Ancova', 'Gold' and 'Lotus', have been touring restlessly the past years, reaching some of the coolest and most respected venues and festivals in the world. From Fuse in Belgium to Space in Ibiza. From Loft in Barcelona to Womb in Tokyo. With their music widely supported by artists around the globe (from 2 many dj's and Erol Alkan to Boys Noize, Tiga and beyond), the sounds of their beloved craft have reached across the world. Recently they conquered American hearts as well with shows at EDC in Las Vegas, U Street Music Hall in Washington DC and various HARD events.

Déjà Vu, the album, features collaborations with some of the finest talents of our generation. DJ Spank-Spank from the legendary acid house formation Phuture delivers a mesmerizing vocal for "King Of The Top Floor", while cult superstar Peaches does not -- and never will - shy away from controversy on "Whistleblower". Up-and-coming Belgian vocalist Gustaph (singer in the NY house collective Hercules and Love Affair) lends his golden voice on "The Call", and Mixhell fires up their thunder drums on "Vegas".

The choice of guests on "Déjà Vu" wonderfully reflects the musical pilgrimage Mumbai Science undertook in the making of this album. Tapping deep into their musical heritage, Mumbai Science bring a piece of work that reflects their own, wayward view on contemporary dance music. Rough and dirty, but at the same time playful and quirky, without making any compromises on the artistic level. Instead Mumbai Science took the path less traveled and ended up at an uncharted place that somehow feels right at home

Mumbai Science's debut album "Déjà Vu" will be out June 16th on Lektroluv Records. From techno-with-an-attitude, over faux-pas electro-clash to straight-up Belgian rave. Expect a wonderful journey through the soundscapes of Mumbai Science.
