MOOD Records, the brand new label founded by The Queen of Techno Nicole Moudaber, launches in February 2013 with a killer three-track EP with a Nathan Barato remix and a re-work from Nicole herself. MOOD’s inaugural release will set the tone for showcasing the finest underground sounds which are both produced and supported by the DJ/Producer.

The imprints debut track ‘In The Mood’ features the considerable vocal talents of Hosie. Centred on a tightly programmed funky groove and shimmering chords, the unmistakeable and infectious Hip-Hop influenced vocal complements Nicole’s expertly honed studio-skills. Aimed firmly at the dance-floor this percussive house outing demonstrates Nicole’s versatility, and will be a welcome addition to the record bags of a plethora of DJs. 

On the flip side, Nicole Moudaber again steps up to provide a much deeper rework of her original production. Here Nicole strips back the beat to its thumping bare bones and removes much of Hosie’s original vocal leaving only echoing snippets, thus expertly creating a fresh atmosphere and tension. 

As the ethos of MOOD is to provide an outlet for works from both established names and newcomers alike, it is fitting that the inaugural release is rounded off with a fine remix by up-and-coming Canadian producer Nathan Barato. Nathan transforms the original by removing many of the groovy elements, instead adding driving hi-hats and a rolling bass which feature heavily throughout the track’s series of exciting peaks and troughs. 

Due for release in late February, ‘In The Mood’ is a deadly debut EP for MOOD which is firmly steeped in the underground, and leaves listeners eagerly anticipating the labels next output.

HIIO Feat. Terri B! – Something About You

February 28, 2013

South American duo HIIO (pronounced H2O) have arrived in 2013 with their attempt at creating a classic house tune. There’s definitely some classic house vibes here in the synths, the Planet Perfecto influence is pretty obvious. But this track is much slower than anything Planet Perfecto ever put out, and as a result it’s not… View Article

Arty, Nadia Ali & BT – Must Be The Love (Official Music Video)

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals. Any team up between these two is bound to be good, but when you throw in relative newcomer but excellent producer Arty into the mix as well, are we witnessing collaborative genius or are too many cooks spoiling the broth?… View Article

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
