Mosca’s tracks are primarily built to power dance floors, but they are also deceptively sophisticated. As both a DJ and a producer, the London-based artist draws influences from dancehall, grime, bassline, UK garage, funky, hiphop and all types of underground deep, soulful techy house, as well as dabbling in techno, world beats and RnB. But having played straight sets of house, bashment or grime, Mosca is no stranger to perfecting a certain sound.
2010 was a great year with his debut ‘Square One EP’ kick-starting the Night Slugs label, from which ‘Nike’ was voted no.1 in XLR8R’s favourite tracks of 2010. Since then he has hooked up with Fabric to release ‘Gold Bricks, I See You’, as well as remixing Four Tet and Foals. His remix of ‘Heartbeat’ took the world of UK funky by storm, while ‘Tilt Shift’ united ravers from grime youngers to soulful house heads.
Championed by Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs and Benji B as well as having regular airplay on Rinse FM, Deja Vu FM and other pirates, Mosca’s appeal is broad and stretches far beyond the UK. With upcoming remixes of Gucci Mane and Spooky, as well as lots more original material, 2011 looks to be a busy year for the self-confessed music lover.
