Straight out of the depths of the suburbs of Lille, MDNS grew up in an environment marked by the greyness and the typical red bricks of Northern France.

Trapped in a pre-determined and bleak future, MDNS escapes his daily life by indulging in excesses, which quickly earns him the nickname "MADNESS" (pronounced MAD).

It's in his music that he finds a way to channel his destructive energy. Influenced by "Joy Division", "The Cure", and "City Morgue", MDNS quickly becomes a reference for the Soundcloud community by multiplying self-produced projects on the platform.

MAD then joins some of the most influential artists of the alternative movement to create together the collective with which he is currently on tour, TRAIN FANTÔME.
