Nicole Moudaber is single-handedly owning 2016 so far: shortly after ringing in the New Year with a nine hour long set at Heart in Miami, throwing down an open-to-close set at Stereo Montreal the next day then playing an extended final set at the official BPM Festival closing party, the techno and house producer/ DJ has now dropped her new EP titled Silent Sigh. Additionally, the MOOD label lead has been added to the inaugural Awakenings NYC Valentine's Day takeover at Hammerstein Ballroom, where she will spin back-to-back with Victor Calderone.
Silent Sigh follows last fall's BREED EP, Moudaber's collaboration with Skin of Skunk Anansie, with whom she'll be performing alongside at Coachella this spring. The new EP is available exclusively on Beatport but you can stream it below via the artist's Soundcloud:
The three track release starts with the brooding "Silent Sigh" that is instantly recognizable as the work of Moudaber. "Move A Little Closer," which clocks-in at ten minutes long, builds on the dark techno themes of the title track.
The EP concludes with "More Ways Than One" which delivers undiluted techno at its best. As Dancing Astronaut points out, this track was released ahead of the EP as a free download as a token of the producer's appreciation for her fans.
Following the EP's release, the Nigerian-born Lebanese producer known for bringing dance music to Beirut continues to be a regular on the Ibiza-to-everywhere-on-earth circuit with a long list of international tour dates coming up including EDC Mexico.
In addition to releasing her own music and touring nonstop, Moudaber has a big year coming up as MOOD records boss.
In a recent interview with DJ Mag she revealed: "there's an album from Marino Canal, an incredible Spanish artist. And also I've got a remix package for the Breed EP - I have people like Jamie Jones, Chris Liebing, Pan-Pot, Scuba, Carl Craig, Hector and Paco Osuna involved and it's sounding incredible. I've been playing them and it's just mega. There's lots of exciting stuff coming out on MOOD, but also lots of parties related to MOOD."
