Nicole Moudaber adopts two Moby tracks for ‘Adoption’ EP

Nicole Moudaber adopts two Moby tracks for ‘Adoption’ EPNicole Moudaber Moby Adoption 1

Nicole Moudaber has extended her pronged and thriving techno foliage to intertwine with elder electronic icon and entrepreneur, Moby. Moudaber has released a two-track EP on her own MOOD Records, entitled Adoption — and fittingly so, as the release is comprised of a set of Moby reworks.

Moudaber acquires both Adoption tracks from Moby’s late Everything Was Beautiful And Nothing Hurt, his 15th studio album to date. Both her renditions of “Like A Motherless Child” and “Mere Anarchy,” discharge a subdued, calculated darkness. Through the smoldering cloud of Moudaber’s seductive techno, the weighty world of Moby’s original anxieties remain, though considerably anesthetized.

Adoption is out now exclusively for download through Beatport, with full availability coming October 5. Though Moudaber has already put a full-scale agenda of internationally acclaimed festivals (Tomorrowland, Ultra Korea, Japan, and Mexico) to bed in 2018, she isn’t letting up. In coming months, Moudaber will host her own MoodZONE stage at EDC Orlando, throw another edition of her warehouse event series, MoodRAW in Brooklyn, and board the exalted Holy Ship! in January.

Lightning in a Bottle drops off diverse 2018 lineup

This post was originally published on this site

Bradley, California’s uniquely immersive festival, Lightning in a Bottle, has revealed the first phase of its 2018 musical line-up, set to take place May 23–28.

In an increasingly monotonous festival market, LiB defines itself in defying the norm. The festival’s forward-thinking curation has presently landed a diverse array of acts from Anderson.Paak & The Free Nationals, to Zhu, GriZ, Fever Ray, The Glitch Mob, Sofi Tukker, TOKiMONSTA, Modeselektor (DJ Set), Emancipator, Nicole Moudaber, The Black Madonna, and more.

Lightning in a Bottle’s strive for diversity in its programming can be best summed in music director and co-founder Jesse Flemming’s words:

“We’re definitely not trying to play the same game we are seeing with all the massive festivals these days when we book our music programming. Forget the big names you can see at 10 other festivals this year. For us the goal is to craft a musical playlist that will perfectly guide people along the experience we’re trying to create. We book each stage to be its own separate journey on any given day and we try to diversify it as much as possible so when you’re wandering around during the weekend you can always find something just right for you. This has been our goal since day one and it continues to shape how we book today.”

More information and tickets to Lightning in a Bottle, which go on-sale January 18 at 10 am PST, are available here.

Premiere: Nicole Moudaber & Carl Cox – See You Next Tuesday (Black Asteroid Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Black Asteroid‘s experience is as vast as the amount of music styles he has dabbled in. His unique tenure as a musician, which included being Prince’s engineer, made him a perfect candidate to remold his longtime friend Nicole Moudaber‘s “See You Next Tuesday” with Carl Cox into his own.

The project took an unexpected turn, but worked out exceedingly well. Forging a gritty, apocalyptic atmosphere with roaring synth vibrations and jolts of futuristic, laser-like stabs, Black Asteroid builds upon the tension by employing the original’s vocals into the fold. It’s a gargantuan record to its core, designed to level the dancefloor.

“My first approach was to do something deeper and melodic, as I know this remix would hit a big audience.. but as I was working on the track, the remix took on a life of its own. It became this hard techno monster, that I didn’t anticipate. It’s a heavy, grinding mix that I’m really proud of.” – Black Asteroid

“See You Next Tuesday” is not the only record that sees Black Asteroid and Nicole Moudaber working together. In 2016, Moudaber stepped up to remix Black’s “Black Moon.”

Nicole Moudaber puts forth captivating 11-minute Depeche Mode ‘Cover Me’ remix

Depeche Mode exhibits a sharp propensity for cultivating the foremost of brooding techno reworkings. The aforementioned is displayed tenfold when one considers the band’s previous enlistment of acts include Chris Liebing, The Bellville Three, Solomun, Maya Jane Coles, and more for remixes of their music.

Naturally, it is with their sweeping understanding and appreciation for sonic depth— and the beauty of brooding numbers— that the seminal post-punk torchbearers tapped techno goddess Nicole Moudaber to rework their track “Cover Me.” Moudaber’s work joins the illustrious Depeche Mode’s latest double LP collection of remixes for “Cover Me,” which is off their fourteenth studio album Spirit, released in March of this year.

“A few years ago, I hung out with Martin Gore in London and at his country house in England,” Moudaber told Billboard. “I never thought back then I’d be working with Depeche Mode one day. Depeche were such a huge part of my life growing up — I’m a massive fan and it’s a tremendous honor to work on a remix for them. Being able to work with Dave Gahan’s vocals in the studio and drape them in hypnotic techno was really special for me and I’ve experienced some really magical moments playing the remix out in clubs around the world.”

Indeed, Moudaber’s 11-minute take on “Cover Me” delves deep into Moudaber’s early life. Growing up with Depeche Mode instills an idiosyncratic layer into one’s psyche. With this in mind, it’s incredibly fitting her resulted reworking is of her archetypal somber yet hypnotic production tendencies behind the booth.

Other especially notable acts tapped for the remix LP include Ben Pearce and Dixon.
