Moussa Clarke (Moose to his mates) head honcho over at Oven Ready, has internationalism in the blood ? half Senegalese, half English, born in Switzerland, brought up in France then finally winding up in the UK via Austria and Italy.

He regularly plays across the continent, and guests at warehouse parties, outdoor events and clubs all over the world.

To add to this he is consummate and prolific producer/remixer, with more than 100 releases under his belt. Under his Philter guise, he is currently rocking dance floors worldwide on labels such as Presslab, Kinky Vinyl, and his own Oven Ready imprint. No stranger to chart success, Moussa has entered the UK top 40 no less than 5 times under various guises and production partnerships including Musique vs U2, PF Project and Tzant.
