It has been twelve years since Moguai first launched his label Punx, and almost 4 years since the label has released any tracks. The reason he starting it up again now? Andre Tegeler thinks that “right now dance music is getting to the point where more and more tracks are sounding the same, so to me it is the perfect time to revisit the original thinking and go against the grain.” The first release, “PunkOMat” incorporates a wobbling bassline with a hint of electro that definitely differs from the normal four to the floor rhythm. “PunkOMat” will be released on June 24th with the relaunch of Punx Records.Posted by
Now over a year old, Moguai’s “Mpire” still evokes the same deliciously monumental energy as it did when first released. Enter British intergalactic export Tom Staar who injects the mix with a hearty dose of electro grit and gut wrenching percussion. Staar does well to maintain the original’s crisp melodic signature while creating a re-imagined version of “Mpire” that is distinctly his own, intertwining Moguai’s progressive touches with a flurry of greyscale synthwork.Posted by
Following yesterday’s Fontainebleau blowout, Size Records shifts focus from live performances to the release circuit. Next up on Steve Angello’s imprint comes an original production from Moguai, who drifts away from the precedent set by recent progressive gems such as “Hit It” and “Swoon.” In the same vein as his last release, “Mammoth,” Moguai tailors his unique electro chords around an anthemic build and climactic drops. Angello has been broadening his brand one release after another, and “Champs” is one giant step towards the big room scene.

A previously unlikely candidate to land a release on Steve Angello’s progressive house imprint, Moguai is establishing himself beyond the electro arena. Coming off his collaboration with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, “Mammoth,” Moguai has unleashed a preview of his next record, “Champs.” Premiered by Michael Woods during his Goody Goodies slot for Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, “Champs” is is the epitome of anthemic dance music and strikes with the same force as any previous Size release — but it will be put to the test when released on March 22nd.Posted by
Still burning from the fuse of “Wakanda,” Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike have joined forces with Moguai for a collaboration that couldn’t be described as anything but “Mammoth.” Moguai’s supersonic, fine-tuned electro chords provide the Belgian tandem with a backbone for their big room sound, combining for an overall forceful record that has made its way into countless sets over the past month. Every sound manufactured for “Mammoth” is crisp, clean cut, and punches with vigor, and the melody is one that instantly sticks. This collaboration already has a ticket stamped: final destination, Miami.

Before Eric Prydz blessed the world with his Essential Mix, Pete Tong took us through this week’s Essential New Tunes – a must-have list for all dance music enthusiasts who wish to stay on top of current releases. Beginning with Dirty South & Deniz Koyu’s, “Halo,” set to release Monday, spanning to Dimitri Vegas, Monguai & Like Mike’s massive new hit, “Mammoth,” to a cosmic new track from Jeremy Olander, “Let Me Feel.” Pete’s Essential New Tune of the Week was none other than Disclosure’s, “White Noise” – a song that reached #3 on the UK Dance iTunes Chart within a day of being released. 15 Minutes of Fame was spent with Russian prodigy Arty who chatted about life on the road, and played us Alesso’s famed mix of his song “When I See You,” in addition to his trance-induced remix of Zedd’s “Spectrum”. Full tracklist after the break.
Coming on the heels of the Tommorowland ticket announcement is a preview from Belgium’s own Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. The boisterous duo teamed up with German house producer Moguai on “Mammoth,” a suitable name for the massive production from the unlikely trio. The progressive house track eases into a four on the floor beat, throwing in Moguai’s signature tonal sounds and a jump-ready Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike build. Tomorrowland fans have already caught a listen from the festival’s official aftermovie; for everyone else the track will be released March 4 through Spinnin’ Records.Posted by
