Sven Maes, also known as Svenson, is a Belgian
DJand trance music producer. [Discogs artist | artist = Sven+Maes | name = Sven Maes ] His work, especially in partnership with fellow Belgian Johan Gielen, have produced some of trance music's biggest hits. He has been successful as a solo artist and also as a partner in several collaborative efforts.
At the age of eighteen Sven played in an eccentric group of musicians that performed under the name "Mea Culpa". It was during one of their performances at a Belgian contest for rock bands that he was noticed. The yearly event is called
Humo's Rock Rallyand he was approached by Geert Blanchart, who competed in short track speed skating at the 1994 Winter Olympics. [citeweb|title=Athletics and Homosexuality|url=http://www.usc.edu/student-affairs/glbss/PDFS/AthleticsandHomosexuality.pdf|publisher=" University of Southern California"|accessdate=2008-08-26] Blanchart, in turn, introduced Sven to a friend of his. That friend was Olivier Adams and was already established in the music industry and was known for their synthesizerwork with the acid band Lords of Acid.
It was the interest of Olivier Adams that helped Sven keep moving in a successful direction with his music. The use of Adam's
recording studiohelped Sven by allowing him to tape several tracks under a few aliases.
Adams too was the one that introduced Sven to
Antler-Subway Records. This is the time that Sven met Johan Gielen. The two paired up to produce tracks as Bodyheat and Airscape.

They worked together as Svenson & Gielenfor more than a few years. The Airscape remix of Deleriumfeat. Sarah McLachlan 's "Silence" is the duo's biggest hit, although their remix of Delerium's "After All" was successful. It made it's way onto several compilations like the Euphoria series of compilations.

It was when their contract with Antler-Subway expired that the rapid successes came one after the other. The duo hooked up with Dutch dance organizer
ID&Tand started to produce for them. The first track was the epic " The Beauty of Silence". [citeweb|title=Svenson & Gielen - The Beauty Of Silence|url=http://www.discogs.com/release/22847|publisher= Discogs] This was soon followed by "Twisted" and "We Know What You Did".
