Nicole Moudaber Presents ‘In the MOOD’
New Event Brand Coming to NY & Miami
March 1 Brooklyn, NY @ Output
March 27 Miami, FL @ The Raleigh Hotel Pool
DJ/producer Nicole Moudaber is building upon her MOOD Records imprint with the launch of ‘In the MOOD,’ a new event brand inspired by her own life-changing discovery of dance music. After a memorable first event at The BPM Festival with Chris Liebing in January, ‘In the MOOD’ is coming to Output in New York on March 1, and Miami Music Week on March 27.
Carefully curating the programming for each ‘In the MOOD’ event, Moudaber is aiming to capture what she calls the “loving, amazing, ritualistic vibe” of her early dance-floor experiences. ‘In the MOOD’ parties are all about equality, unity and joy fueled by music, from Moudaber and her hand-picked artists – both fresh faces and outright legends.
On Saturday, March 1, Moudaber will reign over the main room all night long at Output, while the Panther Room will see German techno don Robert Dietz, Canadian upstart Nathan Barato and Brooklyn-based Etai Tarazi manning the decks. Rising Canadian talent Nathan Barato's “Two Finger” EP will drop on Moudaber’s MOOD Records on March 3, marking the label’s milestone 10th release.
For those heading to Winter Music Conference aka Miami Music Week this year, mark your calendars for MOOD’s Miami takeover on Thursday, March 27 for a massive pool party at The Raleigh Hotel. Alongside NYC house music legend Danny Tenaglia, Saved Records artist Lauren Lane, Kompakt producer and budding fashion designer Tom Peters, Traktor master ENDO, and a very special surprise guest (TBA March 1), Moudaber will set the mood at this mega pool party with no-nonsense techno beats for a proper Miami dance bacchanal.
Following entry into the Resident Advisor Top DJ 100 poll and launch of her MOOD Records imprint this past year, there's no slowing down for Moudaber as she continuously cultivates her label's roster and rolls out Beatport chart-toppers with her ‘One Day Later’ EP reaching #1 on the Beatport techno release chart. To add to Moudaber’s latest list of accomplishments is her International Dance Music Award (IDMA) nomination for ‘Best Tech House / Techno Track’ for "Roar" off her debut artist album Believe [Drumcode]. Vote here by March 5, 2014.
Now the only question remains... are you ready to get In the MOOD?

Heading back to their familiar stomping grounds, Grand and Warren will be stepping back into the legendary Pacha NYC DJ booth this Saturday, March 1st to perform with one of the dance music scenes most influential artists, Dirty South.
The New York / New Jersey based duo have been gaining massive recognition and support throughout the Tri-State area, playing events at the most prestigious nightlife venues while getting ready to expand nation wide. Their high energy and undeniable chemistry, on and off the decks, SHINES making it easy to see and share their passion for the music...and their hunger to take their careers to the next level.
The last time Grand and Warren graced the Pachay NYC crowd, as support to the sensational Martin Garrix, they made quite an impression on the young, talented, DJ/Producer. Enough to where Garrix has been supporting their track 'Tres' (a collaboration with fellow artist Damien Anthony) in all of his current, live, sets.
This is just the beginning for Grand and Warren, so come out to Pacha on Saturday to start off the EDM industry's March madness properly. Make sure to get to Pacha early, as G&W will be opening for Dirty South; who both consider an inspirational artist and a motivational factor in the development of their beginning moves to penetrate the EDM community.
On the back of his third best-of album ‘The Seven Year Itch’ – Parquet Rec. head honcho Solee keeps the fire burning with two brand new productions packaged together on what’s another classy EP from one of the most exciting evolving labels in the deep and melancholic House sector.
As always, Solee hits the nail on the head with two impeccably well-produced originals that are already picking up support from a batch of the most influential and in the know DJs in the world. With Adam Beyer, Hernan Cattaneo, Eelke Kleijn, Oliver Schories, Dubfire, Roland M. Dill, Marc Poppcke, Animal Trainer, Tom Breu, Ibiza Global Radio, Piemont, Wehbba, Tocadisco, Joe T. Vanelli, DJ Linus, M.in, Funkwerkstatt, Nick Warren and many more already road-testing the package – this is no doubt this is another success about to happen for the vastly talented producer. Solee’s production never goes unheard and why would it? For several years he’s proven himself as a reliable source for some of the best innovative and profound House and Techno around, meaning even the biggest of DJs know to check out whatever comes through the promo channels from the Parquet boss man.
OUT NOW ON AT BEATPORT
What a month it’s been for Russia. The Winter Olympics seemed to capture everyone’s attention and the pride throughout the country seems to have stretched as far as the electronic dance music world. Russian DJ/Producer K.S.Y. is holding up a strong rep in the music world with his melodic and progressive style, which he creatively mixes up with deep and tech aspects, creating his own unique style, which is being hammered way beyond the Russian borders. His latest – ‘Olympic Flame XIV’ could be his best yet and going on the fact that the world’s #01 DJ – Hardwell, premiered the release and dubbed it ‘Demo of The Week’ – it seems the DJ elite are agreeing.
K.S.Y. is a master of deception when it comes to dance music and this is no doubt a contributing factor as to why he’s getting picked up by the absolute cream of the DJ world. With Gareth Emery also battering the single on pre-release, it’s no surprise that on release, the rest of the world is right behind it. Produced with a big-room breakdown that’ll make you think you’re about to get a smack in the face from a progressive/electro house drop, K.S.Y. switches it up and kicks off a techy and drop that’ll catch you off-guard and remind you that not all dance music sounds the same after all. Comprised of euphoric plucks, smooth and melodic chords and an infectious big-room lead on the break – it’s got everything it needs to be a big room anthem. The change of direction on the drop would at first maybe confuse, but then you realise that this would send a crowd crazier than any overcooked sub kick drum drop ever could. It’s produced to perfection and the use of both big-room and tech sounds makes it so unique and frankly brilliant.
K.S.Y. has taken the success of the Sochi games and applied it to production. It’s a good time to be Russian and a good time to be K.S.Y. – as this is a release that’s going to get him some serious attention – and its completely deserved.
Renowned Australian progressive house DJ Ivan Gough returns alongside Jebu to release the superb track 'Noxu', out now.
The solid build up on this track quickly grows into a rhythmic surge which is sure to dominate dancefloors. The break-down creates a striking contrast, with soaring synths and a heaving bass line that will make this track unforgettable.
Ivan is one of Australia’s most accomplished dance music exports, dominating dancefloors worldwide – from Ibiza, New York, Canada to the UK. With backing by the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto and Pete Tong, it's fair to say that If there was an Australian Dance Music hall of fame, Ivan Gough would be in it.
Having already offered 'Bootie In Your Face' up as a free download to show his appreciation for his devoted fans, the 'PandaFam', Deorro's massive track track now gets its release through Ultra Music.
'Bootie in Your Face' is a wild and fun track that's all over the place in the best possible way. About the tune, Deorro says, "This song doesn't really make sense. I had too much fun with it! I picked up my guitar and let the 'Rage Against the Machine' in me go wild."
Over the past two years, Los Angeles native Deorro has become one of the most sought after young producer/DJs in the business. The young house prodigy has amassed an awe inspiring discography including a cache of original productions, collaborations, and remixes with Steve Aoki, Chuckie, Axwell, Cazzette, Krewella, Laidback Luke, Carnage, Diplo, MAKJ, Tommie Sunshine, and R3hab as well as more originals than even the most devoted DJs could spin in a week.
Equally as impressive as his studio chops is his technique behind the decks. Deorro’s unique grasp on modern party music has led to his being invited to spin at top events worldwide. Whether in front of 30,000 people in Australia alongside Skrillex and Steve Angelo, or at the DimMak WMC Pool Party, Deorro’s fusion of Dutch, moombah, progressive and bass elements has and raved up reactions without fail.
