Now, after a series of releases on various compilations, MDS’ full length debut album, “He Claims to be Not Human,” invites listeners on a liquid, electric and supremely psychedelic journey: a trip modulated by groovy basslines, bouncing and twisted effects, dynamic rhythms, and cleverly spliced with quirky, often humorous, samples.
“Dead Swan” (150 bpm) introduces the MDS sound, featuring a fat and powerful bassline and quirky effects; the album then accelerates non-stop, progressing to the supernova apogee of “Gate of Desire” (155 bpm), which fully demonstrates the mad creativity of MDS. Never forgetting that trance is a state of mind, tracks can be appreciated physically or mentally…or both.
The album was composed over a period of 2 years; older tracks were revisited and finalized in 2007, ensuring that all tracks benefit from MDS’ ever-evolving maturity as a producer – as well as the innovative effects of his beloved Andromeda and Virus synths.
“When many people dance together in trance, they experience a sense of community. This shared activity, which is a celebration of life, strengthens the bond of our shared humanity. The awareness of being part of a single, all-pervading consciousness helps us to empathize more deeply with one another – to be more accepting not only of others, but also of ourselves.” - Rob Bennett
