Last month, Point Blank made their way to Florida to attend the annual Miami Music Week Winter Music Conference. Now, they have unveiled exactly what they got up to whilst they were there; from interviewing legendary DJs and producers to sitting in on thought-provoking panels, hosting beat-making sessions and of course checking out the epic parties on offer, see what went down at WMC 2019 in their Miami Music Week video roundup.
Nicole Moudaber has confirmed details of a 15-date spring tour across North America, set to start later this month.
The tour will see her play dates on the continent across March, April and May, including stop-offs at Coachella, Ultra Music Festival's Resistance stage and SXM Festival.
Nicole Moudaber, Adam Beyer, Charlotte de Witte, Luciano, Joseph Capriati and more have been confirmed for IMS Dalt Vila 2019 on Friday 24th May.
The closing celebration of the 12th International Music Summit (IMS) in Ibiza Town will also feature the likes of Ida Engberg, DJ Mag favourite SOPHIE, French electronic producer-cum-composer Agoria and the White Island's own Manu Gonzalez and Anna Tur.
SXM Festival has confirmed a second wave of names playing at this year’s event, including Ricardo Villalobos, Sonja Moonear and Nicole Moudaber.
“As a young child, I was always surrounded by funk and soul — it’s the reason I’m so obsessed with percussion and rhythm in my own music. My techno fans might be surprised by my selection, but all five of these are timeless albums that still resonate with me to this day.”
Santana - ‘Supernatural’
Mixcloud wants to pay artists with a new "fan-to-creator" model.
Select, as the service has been named, will require listeners to pay a $2.99 monthly subscription fee, which will be used to fund licensing and pay the curator of the respective channel.
In return for their support, fans will be able to download mixes to listen offline and view tracklists before hitting play. Mixcloud's ID technology will track the rights holders of tunes played in each set, helping artists, publishers and labels secure additional revenue.
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.
