MOOCH Recordings kicks off with the Imperial Street EP from Quenum, the man behind Cadenza and a back catalogue of hits across labels Crosstown Rebels, Orac, Soma, Trapez, to name but a few. His his legendary set back in July cemented his place in the MOOCH hall of fame and also put him on the radar for the first ever release on the label…Quenum‘s hypnotic, groovers on this EP are just right in building up the night, riding through peak time and out the other end down at the afterparty….On remix duties we have invited Tim Xavier to weave his tech magic and add his signature harder, darker sound to this killer EP

Samples here….

In July Mooch was invited back to host the Bullpen @ Noztock 2012. What started as a modest BBQ party has grown to a 5000+ capacity, boutique style festival not dissimilar to the likes of Secret Garden Party or Camp Bestival. Celebrating its 14th year, Nozstock ran from Friday to Sunday at Rowden Paddocks Farm in Bromyard, this year it featured eight stages of entertainment all with a weird and wonderful myths & legends theme.

                       

After the 3 hour drive from London we set up camp in our usual spot, cracked open our beers and headed onto the site. Only a short walk from our field saw ample (clean) toilets / shower facilities, cash ‘n’ fag outlets, which is exactly what you want when living in a tent! Just inside the main entrance a selection of food stalls, serving hangover curing ‘all day breakfast pizzas’, tasty 100% Herefordshire beef burgers and not forgetting the finest west country Scrumpy and Perry cider all of which was our staple diet for the next 24hr.

Our corner of the festival was the ‘The Rave Yard’ an area which is home to the Cubicles and Bullpen (an actual former bull pen and working milking parlour.) Come sundown the yard filled up quickly with people fresh from a days hibernation due to their previous legendary mash up Friday night! The Cubicles hosted D&B heavyweights though out the evening while our home for the next 8 hours was the Bullpen. The space had earlier been in the good hands of Sika Studios hosting UK Hip Hop through out the day, but now it was early Saturday night, the stage was set and we were ready to rock. Natalie Coleman, Ed Jones, Dirty Byrd Samantha Blackburn and Noz residents Choose Life provided the crowd with House and Techno all night long….

 

The next morning was spent chilling and more eating before the journey home, the sun stayed out for us the whole time which was definitely the icing on our Noz festival cake. Jokes of the weekend were defiantly on the 2 blokes trying to get into the festival without tickets, they ended up a tree for hours having then to call the police to save them from the Bull literary acting as field security! Mooch crew highly recommend those of you wanting a festival that feels intimate, fresh, varied and well away from those commercial sponsors…..More info on 2013 tickets etc.? You can visit their website HERE.

This month we introduce West Country boy and long running Nozstock Resident Choose Life (aka Dex).

So tell us a bit about what you have been upto so far in 2012??

I’ve worked on an EP that’s come out on Serialism. My next release is one track i produced with Dachshund -on Get Physical records. Then we got another EP coming out on Rebellion. And I’ve continued to work on my album. I’ve been very busy in the studio.
 
Over the years you have helped set up some very respected labels from Access 58, Cadenza to more recently Clapper. Which one are you most proud of?? 

I’m proud of all of them. Each one gave me a lot of satisfaction when I was setting it up. It’s a continuation, a kind of logical progression going from one to the next.
 
So where did your musical journey begin??

That’s too long to answer! I think it started at home, my parents listened to everything, soul, jazz, african music, reggae, caribbean music, french songs, just everything. That stereo was on the whole time. Before DJing I was into dance, in a jazz dance school, then in a professional breakdance group. My younger brother is still a dancer and a choreographer.
 
What has been your favourite gig to date??

That’s impossible to answer! Each party gives me a different feeling, a particular emotion, you can’t compare them because each one is unique. What really makes the difference is the people, the crowd, the promoter, some friends I meet. It’s those relationships that make a party great.
 
Tell us your musical guilty pleasure??

I love gospel, but I don’t think it’s really a guilty pleasure, just a bit unusual for a techno artist.
 

What are the top five tunes floating your boat at the moment??

1 René Breitbarth – Crackle – Deep Data

2 Dandy Jack – Hamlet Machine ( Lad isakifly remix) Caduceus records

3 Alejandro Vivanco – melodia – Sound Architecture Records

4 Daxta – Sun spot – Sirius Pandi

5 Whomadewho – Running Man – Kompakt

 

A lil taster of what’s to come from July’s special guest Quenum. Check out footage from Tropical Corner festival in Geneva HERE
