In the past few months alone Moguai has charted a Beatport No. 1 with his Fatboy Slim collaboration ‘Ya Mama’, featured as a special guest on BBC Radio 1, completed a stunning set of remixes for industry A-listers – Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Underworld, Rye Rye and Robyn – and continues to juggle all of the above with an international touring schedule that’s bursting at the seams. He is, without question, on the form of his career. But just when you assume that no one human being could possibly fathom any more work, he rears his crafty head once again to deliver us a casual Mau5trap release of epic proportions, and the official announcement of his forthcoming artist album on the very same imprint!
Despite the sheer quantity of music that he’s making right now, it remains overtly clear that Moguai does not sacrifice on quality. Oxygen is testament to this. With the breathtaking vocal expertise of Fiora at hand, the style is back to the ‘Mau5trap Moguai’ of old, but with all of the benefits you’d expect from a producer with that many more months studio experience under his belt. Melodic, haunting, deep and spine tingling, the Moguai/Fiora combination is pure bliss for the ears. A more harmoniously delightful and progressive cut than Moguai has created in a while, Oxygen is electronic music the way it should be made. It’s electronic music of the very first order. Set for release on Mau5trap records on 7th November 2011, this might just be the record that skyrockets Moguai to international stardom. It’s that good.
On remix duty this time round we have the pleasure of born and bred Londoner and dubstep extraordinaire, Jacob Plant. Living up to all expectations and more, Plant retains the sensational Fiora vocals, and delivers a loud, gritty, hypersonic interpretation that will knock you for six. It’s got energy, it’s got bass, and it’s got a little touch of humour. Complete with a pounding club mix from Moguai to see things off in style, this remix package is the icing on the proverbial cake for what is yet another stunning release from Moguai and Mau5trap.
And as if that wasn’t enough to take in at once…we can now announce that the two ‘M’s’ will be continuing their special relationship into the new year, as they prepare to deliver Moguai’s stunning artist album ‘Mpire’! With a release date set for January 2012 on the mighty Mau5trap imprint, the hype around this is set to reach fever pitch. We can’t wait!
