Techno maven, producer, and DJ, Nicole Moudaber brings her unique brand of EDM, techno, house music to The MID, 306 North Halstead Street, Chicago, Illinois, on Friday, September 25th, 2015, at 10:00pm. Tickets are available online at Clubtix.com.
Nicole Moudaber holds true to the belief that the power of music brings us together as one. The beat of a drum, the very first instrument created by humans, remains at the heart of the music she creates and plays, while the diversity of her tastes, and her ability to create spellbinding club experiences, promote harmony on the dance floor.
Growing up in Nigeria exposed Moudaber to the hypnotic tribal rhythms of artists like Fela Kuti. This was her first taste of the power of the drum, and lies at the core of her sound. Moudaber moved to London in 2000 where she quickly integrated herself into the city’s club scene, becoming a promoter at Turnmills, holding her own party called, ‘Soundworx’, which she started in Beirut. Her unrelenting desire to unite people through music couldn’t have been demonstrated more explicitly than that first party, where people of all races, religions and classes danced together under the stars in an abandoned, bombed-out mosque and cathedral.
Moudaber’s performances are full of passion and drama, cultivating musical journeys designed to reach her audience on a deeper level and make each individual’s experience a memorable one.
Away from touring, Moudaber has established her label, Mood Records, as a go-to platform for any self-respecting techno fans. As a producer, she has also progressed rapidly, thanks to her dedication to the craft. Remix work and originals have all cemented her reputation for high quality production, which is clearly evident on her recent collaboration with Skin from Skunk Anansie – an emotive collection of tracks that highlight Moudaber’s ability to take the listener to the deeper side of electronic music.
The ambassador of dark, driving techno Moudaber, indeed teamed up with Skin, the multi-talented Skunk Anansie front-woman, established DJ and fashion icon, for a collaborative EP entitled ‘Breed’. Two legendary artists in their own right, Moudaber and Skin have brought together cutting-edge creative and visual aesthetics to ensure ‘Breed‘ is an assault on the senses. The exceptional songwriting and performance abilities of Skin, married with Moudaber’s production finesse, both point to ‘Breed‘ being one of the most celebrated conceptual projects in techno. ‘Breed’ is available via Moudaber’s own imprint MOOD Records. Over a year in the making, ‘Breed’ is spearheading a new brand of innovative, pioneering techno. With visionaries Moudaber and Skin at the helm, the project is blazing a trail for the future of contemporary dance music.
Moudaber presides over an empire that continues to grow in stature and the future looks full of exciting prospects. She is a professional, innovative, hard-working artist who has become a contemporary icon. From her long, curly locks to her slamming techno sets and her intense, empowering performances, she truly stands in a class all of her own…[from Nicole Moudaber biography and Breed press release]
