Nicole Moudaber will be playing a whole host of new music and premiering unreleased tracks forthcoming on Drumcode and her yet-to-launch label MOOD Records, during her performance at the coveted Radio 1′s Essential Mix on Saturday, June 23, 2012 at 01:00. The invitation to perform on this exclusive radio venue – “the world’s biggest DJs on the world’s biggest decks” – further consolidates her standing as the underground queen of dance music.
A flawless producer and passionate DJ, Nicole rocks crowds around the globe with her heady mix of mysterious soulfulness, razor sharp technique and warm, infectious energy.
“It’s a great honour and a milestone for any DJ to get the opportunity to do their first Essential Mix,” says Nicole. “It’s also an acknowledgement of all the hard work and dedication I’ve put into my music and performances over the past three years, and I will continue to do so for many more years to come.”
Nicole is one of the select artists that Carl Cox has heavily supported, and she will be performing alongside Carl at his Revolution Recruits parties at Space Ibiza for the fourth summer in a row this year. Whether live, or on-air on Radio 1′s Essential Mix this Saturday, get ready to fall in love with the majestic grooves of a first-class performer.
Reigning supreme with impeccable technical skill and tune selection
Nicole’s flawlessly executed music combines edgy, percussive house with tough, soulful techno sounds to create a unique mix that is pure Moudaber and utterly devastating. She exudes a mysterious glamour with her rebellious mane and smoky eyes but is also known for being highly approachable, taking time to greet fans at clubs and answering their tweets personally on Twitter. A funky diva who is, herself, a passionate clubber, Nicole knows all the moves to ensure that nobody leaves the dancefloor when she hits the decks.
On the production end, she’s already earned critical acclaim, having spent weeks at the top of the Beatport Techno Chart with her remix of Sian & Mladen Tomec’s ‘Front Pocket’ on Octopus and her version of Carl Cox’s ‘Chemistry’ on Intec. She also scooped a prestigious IDMA at Miami’s Winter Music Conference, winning the award for ‘Best Minimal/Techno Track’. In addition, Moudaber has dropped killer original tracks for other labels including Drumcode, 8Sided Dice, Kling Klong and Waveform Recordings, while remixing the likes of Santos, Martin Eyerer, Mauro Picotto, and Bart Skills. But most of all she is an artist driven to create a distinct groove that takes people on a techno driven journey of transcendent nonstop dancing – regardless of whether she’s playing at a huge festival like the Electric Daisy Carnival or at an intimate club like Cielo NYC.
Nicole says the is incredibly thankful for the endless flow of positive energy from fans and fellow artists: “I thank everyone who’s supported me by coming out to a show or by buying a record. But this is just the beginning…”
