Nicole Moudaber gears up to take over Miami Music Week 2016 with her annual MoodDAY and MoodNIGHT parties and performance at Ultra Music Festival. This time, she celebrates the 100th episode of her weekly, In the Mood Radio show, with a LIVE broadcast directly from her MoodDAY pool party, featuring DJ sets and special guest interviews from the world’s top artists, as well as a gathering of key music industry members. Nicole, who recently released a full-length solo EP, ‘Silent Sigh,’ (stream on Soundcloud; available exclusively via Beatport) has also been nominated again for two International Dance Music Awards, an industry highlight of Miami Music Week, in Best Tech House/Techno Track (for her remix of Alcatraz “Giv Me Luv) and Best Techno/Tech House DJ.
The MoodDAY party will take place at The Raleigh Hotel pool on Thursday, March 17 with a who’s who of techno, including Detroit’s global techno icon Carl Craig, Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus, brilliant Berlin techno duo Pan-Pot, emotional house hero Guti playing live, and of course, Nicole Moudaber herself. The celebrated day-to-night poolside event is guaranteed to satiate any discerning fan of techno and house music and will be exclusively broadcast live on her In The Mood Radio show, heard in 49 countries and 65 FM Stations to over 7 million listeners. Tickets are available at www.wantickets.com.
Nicole Moudaber’s started 2016 in full throttle, ringing in NYE at Heart Nightclub in Miami, an open to close set at Stereo Montreal then flying south of the border playing two shows during the music industry’s pinnacle winter event, The BPM Festival in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. She also had the honor of playing an extended final set at the annual Official BPM Closing party at Blue Parrot closing out the 10-day marathon festival. Now the MOOD Record’s boss has released her first full-length solo EP in several months, ‘Silent Sigh’ EP available exclusively via Beatport.
“Silent Sigh” kicks off the EP with an unhurried build, filled with Nicole’s characteristically dusty textures wrapping around stoic kicks. Stark, metallic designs echo in and out, before an even darker, sub-laden kick pressure pushes the track into a powerful climax. “Move A Little Closer” displays Nicole’s skill for utilizing vocals to forge a sense of intimacy and atmosphere without letting up on either pace or power. A thudding bassline and hi-hats underpin the track’s whispering, seductive samples, whilst gradual ice blast pads add depth to the production. A long-player at 10 minutes, the “Move A Little Closer” layers of build-up pay off with a mind-bending, extended breakdown of space age synths.
Closing the EP is “More Ways Than One,” with a dose of undiluted techno at its best. Deep and dark, “More Ways Than One” shows Nicole’s skill for arranging her productions so that every detail has maximum effect. Initially released as a free download to show Nicole’s appreciation for everyone who supported her throughout 2015.
There’s no limits for Nicole’s 2016 horizon. This February she’ll be playing the US debut of Awakenings NYC at Hammerstein Ballroom on Valentine’s Day back-to-back with Victor Calderone, in addition to North American tour stops at Shrine in Connecticut, Philly’s Rumor, Story in Miami and returning to Mexico for Insomniac’s EDC Mexico. Stay tuned for more information as Nicole will bring her annual MoodDAY and MoodNIGHT events to Miami Music Week 2016! Fans can rejoice as the techno connoisseur makes her awaited return to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival where Nicole will perform with Skin of Skunk Anansie both weekends in the desert. Nicole and Skin released their acclaimed collaborative ‘BREED’ EP in fall 2015.
