When he isn’t releasing music from artists like Trikk, Joseph Ashworth, and Adam Port on his Disco Halal imprint, British producer Moscoman is dropping sonic flames of his own via Diynamic Music, Life And Death, and ESP Institute. Though one outfit that particularly stands out amongst the Moscomann catalogue is London indie label Moshi Moshi Music, who since launching back in 1998 have hosted tracks from Hot Chip, Kate Nash and Lykke Li. Following a number of EPs on
the label, the now Berlin-based Moscoman is back on Moshi Moshi, this time for the release of his new Time Slips Away LP, which includes a dozen new productions as well as features from Teleman, WOOZE, Niki Kini, Vanity Fairy and Nuphar. The record comes in the usual form factor that Moscoman is known for, a multitude of influences coming from all directions, with tracks like Sense Of Time heading straight for the dancefloor, and Back And Again taking us through some kind of synthesizer powered time machine. Some of the more upbeat, vocal heavy tracks also border on the edges of pop and electronica, while others take a road that’s just too quirky to pigeon hole.
Where to start:
Maker Breaker Taker Faker – Robust, melodic, rhythmic and infectious
Turning Tides – Emotive bass rhythms and harmonising female vocals
Violet Candy – Big drums, filter controlled basslines and arpeggiating melodies
