Exclusive L.E.D. Interview with Moguai
L.E.D. had the opportunity to interview the one and only MOGUAI ahead of his show at Voyeur on July 10th, 2010. Without further ado, here are some answers for curious and inquiring minds:
L.E.D.: How long have you been on Mau5trap records and how did your signing to the label come about?
Moguai: I thought that the sound i produce at the moment would fit to mau5trap, so i sent over some tracks to his management last summer, and Joel liked them. Some releases later on i had the album in my hands, and i said “It’s mau5trap, or nobody else!”. Fortunately they answered only a week later and said that they would love to do it.
L.E.D.: What remixes are you currently working on?
Moguai: I have recently finished a remix for Moonbeam, the track is called “Song for girl” and will be released on Tiesto’s Black Hole Recordings. Currently i am working on a remix for Gareth Emery and also for Michael Wood’s next release. He has also done a remix for my next release “Oyster” on mau5trap, massive 🙂
L.E.D.: What are some of your favorite old school records?
Moguai: CJ Bolland – Camargue, Ken Ishi – Extra, The Rising Sons – Afghan Acid or Cybordelics – Nighthorse. Good memories 🙂
