Track Information:

2016 is the year that experimental producer Mooji comes to life, with the release of his debut ‘Double Agent’ album on 14 March via indie imprint, Kram Records. Mooji is the eclectic alter-ego of much-lauded techno producer Kramnik, who returns under a new production alias and with a new body of working acid-jazz, dub, funk, downtempo and blues. Trippy, intoxicating, and musically ambitious, this is the new Mooji sound and it’s really rather special. ‘Double Agent’ is a wild soundscape full of twists, turns and aural surprises. Launching the album in laid back fashion is the highly emotive 'Boson Booze', a downtempo journey with smoothly cut beats and oscillating bass, all finely stirred with beautiful harmonica samples and light guitar melody lines. Moving further along the musical spectrum, 'How Long' gracefully reworks none other than Leadbelly’s 1935 classic, ‘Roberta’. It’s a modern, yet reverent update of a blues standard, an infectious groove, packed with brass instrumentation, scuzzy blues aesthetics, and ramshackle bass and drums. Mooji then strips back the tempo on 'Medley', a dub-infused journey featuring vocals by Jamaica’s premier dub guru, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. A master of reinvention and re-contextualisation himself, Perry’s wise, gravelly tones add depth and weight to Mooji’s dubbed out experiment. In contrast is the powerful styling of ‘Don’t’, an electro-indie and future classic, protesting against repression in society. This intoxicating groove is centred around an industrial bassline, heavy drumming and menacing vocoders generated by Mooji himself. 'So Good' is an artful blend of sexy slide-guitar effects and hypnotic vocals, by none other than blues legend, John Lee Hooker, all mixed with open strum chords, into a gentle trip-hop ditty. Varying levels of effects add depth to this chilled and bluesy trip. As we continue our journey through Mooji’s capricious fascination with musical genres, we encounter 'Romantic Kazoo’, a proper acid-jazz instrumental with snapping 4/4 beats, wrapped around upbeat trumpet melodies and smoothly fingered bass. Penultimate track 'Foggy Waters' is perhaps the most experimental on the album, venturing into a free jazz vibe, where instruments fade in and out of earshot before a percussive blast of piano punctures the audio horizon, all mixed with the voice of archetypal bluesman, Muddy Waters. Finally, closing the album is 'Psilo Symphony', an atmospheric, symphonic, and luscious soundtrack, bringing the album to a close through a suspenseful Wild West montage, a fitting climax to Mooji's restless, shape shifting collage of musical innovation. Creating captivating music for both body and soul, Mooji’s eclectic ‘Double Agent’ brings to life an artist’s irrepressible desire to explore and master different musical styles. The progression from Kramnik to Mooji demonstrates an artist in constant evolution, and offers a tantalising glimpse of further musical gems in the road ahead. www.moojimusic.com www.facebook.com/moojimusic www.soundcloud.com/moojimusic www.twitter.com/moojimusic
