MAAD ZEN is the alias of the Århus native singer, bassist and producer Mathias Holst Madsen. Growing up with music as a central part of the family, he started playing bass and singing at the age of 14. Since then he became intrigued by music and the whole music industry, and has been playing live acts with various bands since then. One year ago the now 21 year old artist started to experiment with production and electronic music. During the last half year, Fyrmesteren has started to shape his own style and expression as a producer and artist.
Influenced by legendary hiphop groups such as Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth and The Pharcyde from the 1990’s, but also heavily influenced by more current producers such as Terrace Martin and the whole rapidly growing Soulection genre.
Fyrmesteren produces organic R&B and hiphop with live instruments, a wide and airy sound image, funky grooves and melodies with positive vibrations. He is currently working on his debut project together with the producer and studio engineer BROR.
