As the New Year rapidly approaches, industry professionals and fans alike look forward to this year’s The BPM Festival taking place in the idyllic beach town of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Spanning over ten days, the festival promises over 250+ artists and a selection of the world’s most respected electronic music labels with multiple day & night events running concurrently throughout the festival. VIBE has cited the inaugural ‘In The MOOD’ showcase presented by Nicole Moudaber as one of the ‘7 Must-Catch Acts Going To BPM Festival,’ detailing that “Moudaber has always been a prominent figure in techno, so its no surprise to see her name on the bill. What is a surprise however, is that with her label, MOOD Records, having just launched less than a year ago, has already booked the team a MOOD showcase at BPM. A good start indeed.” The debut, hosted by Stereo, will see Moudaber alongside Chris Liebing and Tom Peters on Thursday, January 9.
The Nigerian-born London techno producer has seen a whirlwind year with the launch of her own record label and a string of widely acclaimed releases including ‘Growler’ EP by Just B, ‘Icon’ EP by Carlo Lio & The Junkies, and her own ‘Give Me Body’ EP remixed by Anja Schneider. Moudaber tells THUMP, “The ethos of MOOD is house and techno, I don’t want to limit it to one genre only, I play across the board and my label will reflect that. I have releases and mixes coming out from established and up and coming artists too, it’s more of a creative process for me than anything else. When the music is good it needs to be heard.” For those techno aficionados headed to The BPM Festival this year, mark ‘In The MOOD’ down on your calendars, as this night will be one for the books!
