Fabien, the producer behind MADMIND, grew up in France and discovered electronic music when he was 13, with artists such as Prodigy, Laurent Garnier, Chemical Brothers, Aphex Twin, Daft Punk and Hallucinogen to name a few. He then felt an urge to express his own emotions through musical experiments, which is why at a young age he started to compose on various software’s. Shortly after he discovered the peculiar universe of rave parties with his first hardcore and techno nights. This inspired him to purchase his first platinum decks and started mixing techno, house, drum’n’bass and trance music.
Progressively he explored the psy-trance universe: its complex tracks, highly colored sounds and great hypnotic energy were a mind-blowing experience. In 2007, composing music became an obsession and he focused on improving the quality of his own tracks.
In 2008, he moved to London UK and discovered new atmospheres which expanded his approach of music which inspired him to release several tracks on Australian and UK labels. This opened new horizons that led him to producing new musical styles such as break beat, minimal, techno, dub and drum'n'bass. In 2011, he published a new EP in collaboration with the psy-break producer Blazer and took part of the Species' label, UltraGroove Records.
He was then recognized by the 24/7 Records team after having developed a rich, dark and heavy sound with deep techno elements. In 2013, he released his first psy-trance EP : "Snake Oil".
He wants his music to be a mix between different electronic music styles and he doesn't bother about musical boundaries as long as it sounds intense and deep. His sound is a balance between the things he loves, sometimes mechanical and organic, often nervous and powerful, always mental and visceral. Madminds ultimate goal is to give his own vision of what modern electronic psychedelic music means for him.
Constantly trying to push his own limits, he never takes anything for granted and always needs to keep digging deeper into underground music. These experience have also opened gateways into the world of sound design for video games and industry, which expands the spectrum of his sound experimentations.
2014 will see his first gigs as a live performer, so stay in touch to see and hear what happens on stage !
