Born in Cali, Colombia in September 1993, Daniel Amezquita aka “Moska” fell in love with Dance music by watching a Sensation White video in Amsterdam at the age of 14. He then decided to use his family ́s 1GB desktop computer to create “remixes” and “mashups” for other artists’ tracks, mainly inspired by Michael Jackson and the Dirty Dutch sound. By using simple blackberry headphones and pure talent, Moska produced Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna ́s “We Found Love” bootleg, a production that grabbed the infamous Tiesto ́s attention after listening to Laidback Luke play it in Miami at club LIV. Thanks to Tijs significant support after playing his records at Ultra Music Festival 2012, Moska ́s talent roof topped. Not long after WMC 2012 ended, he remixed Laidback Luke feat. Winter Gordon ́s “Speak Up” for MixMash Records. After his enormous success with “Speak Up,” Tiesto gave him the opportunity to remix “Las Vegas”, the bonus track for the new Club Life Miami CD released by Musical Freedom, delivering a “bomb”. Summer of 2012 set the pace for this extremely talented artist, who made his professional debut at Club Pacha, Ibiza, where he performed next to Tiesto and Hardwell. Not long before the year ended, Moska performed with Nicky Romero in Cali, Colombia. 2013 began at full speed and Moska travelled to Mexico where he performed one more time next to Tiesto, and immediately travelled to his native country where he performed in Colombia ́s most important EDM festival Summerland with incredible artists such as David Guetta, Steve Angello and Armin Van Buuren. WMC 2013 was no exception and Moska was invited by Mixmash Records to perform at their Pool Party at the National Hotel next to Laidback Luke. He also performed at Story Sobe next to Cedric Gervais, and was invited by Diplo to perform at the “Diplo and Friends” party. Moska ́s music has been heard all around the world and played at important radio shows like the BBC Radio 1 show for the “Diplo & Friends” guest mix, as well as several Tiesto ́s Club Life Podcasts. Among his most relevant work, “Las Vegas” (Moska Remix), “Massive Mutation” (Original Mix), “Insane” (Original Mix), have been signed by Musical Freedom, Mixmash Records and Mad Decent respectively.
This summer continued to be full of surprises for Moska’s fans around the world, as he recently performed at Hakkasan and Wet Republic at the MGM Grand Hotel Las Vegas; he also showed up in New York and Los Angeles. Days later he touched down at one of the biggest EDM festivals in the planet, Tomorrowland, where he performed next to Laidback Luke in his ‘Super You & Me’ show.
Pure talent can’t be stopped and we will definitely keep hearing a lot more from this young talent. Summer will end up with Laidback Luke’s Bus Tour around United States and Canada, surely this will heat up 2014, as Moska continues to produce for some of the biggest artists in electronic music.
