DJ Mace once more explores the outer-limits of the nihilistic, beatheavy Fremdkunst-universe. Mace took influence from old school hiphop, Dutch boogie, freejazz, Trax-classics, field recordings from the African continent, the timid singing of French divas, ‘talking blues’ records and present-day electronic music. Inspiration comes from the works of Daniel Denett, Alfred Hitchcock and Stendhal. Musicians who provided sounds-to-chop are Erwin Vann, Wiboud Burkens and Shycop. The EP is mastered by the emaculate Jolie Nabokov and once again, Mister Adam provides the funkdafied artwork.
On ‘Another Point Of View’, his Fremdtunes-début, Moods presents emotional, dreamy tunes that reflect the thrills, chills and tingles that life brings about. Inspired by musicians like Curtis Mayfield and Dexter Wanseland energized by the music of producers like Pete Rock, Lapalux, Comfort Fit and Dilla, Moods is taking beatmaking to the level of idiosyncratic songcreation. Whether it’s the prototypic hip-hop swing on ‘Where I Belong’ or the uptempo dancegroove on ‘Comfort Zone’, this youngster will surely begird your marbles and broil your ticker with one-of-a-kind, hard-to-resist musical masterpieces.

“Intensely demented electronic funk from the Dutch Skweee king. ‘Club Tropicana’ oozes hypercolour juice from every pore…” says Boomkat.

Well done Mr B.” Kidkanevil thinks it: “Sounds incredible!” Mark Yelavich from Frybread Radio says: “It is so damn good”. Hackman called it “Colourful stuff!” And we like to call it: Club Tropicana…and it’s out NOW – on vinyl and digital!
