Nicole Moudaber loves to keep moving. Everything about the DJ, producer and label boss evokes constant motion, from her propulsive, percussive music to her trademark mane of raven hair, which shakes as she DJs as if blown by its own wind. Even when not behind the decks, in the studio, or plotting her next festival stage takeover, she’s behind the wheel of a sports car, substituting beats-per-minute for miles-per-hour.
But even for the multitasking mother of Mood Records, 2018 was especially hectic.
In 2013, Moudaber launched Mood Records with her own ‘In The Mood’: a slinky floor-filler with a sassy vocal hook — “I’m in the mood; you know you want it” — that nodded to her late nights at Trade. She also released her debut album, ‘Believe’, on Adam Beyer’s prestigious Drumcode label, cementing her status as a rising star with a set that added new colors to her palette, from the slow tech-house grooves of ‘Big Love With No Apology’ to the pattering, melodic synths of the beguiling ‘Lumiére Tamisée’.
Nicole Moudaber is using her visibility to raise awareness of an important subject with the launch of a new charity.
Named ELEVEN, the charity has been set up to raise awareness of female genital mutilation, while raising money to support survivors and help to prevent it.
She has set up the charity alongside psychotherapist and human rights activist Leyla Hussein and Magool, which is an organisation Hussein founded.
Adam Beyer has announced an after-party for Drumcode's forthcoming Halloween session at London's Tobacco Dock on Saturday 27th October.
With the main event finishing up at 10PM, those who've still got something left to give can head to one of the UK capital's newest venues, the 24-hour-licensed FOLD, for another few rounds with the main man and his comrades through to 6AM.
Former DJ Mag cover star Nicole Moudaber will bring her signature brand of driving techno to the next edition of DJ Mag Sessions which will take place next month at Sub Club.
Named our best small club over the last two years, we couldn’t think of anywhere better to host her on 25th October than the Glasgow institution.
Titled 'Adoption', the mini-release features versions of 'Mere Anarchy' and 'Like A Motherless Child' from Moby's latest album 'Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt...'
Released via Moudaber's label Mood Records, the 12-inch hit shelves last week, but digital formats aren't available until Friday 5th October.
