The garage-influenced electronic producer set to play the unique London event series this weekend gives us his favourite tracks from the genre
Last Autumn saw the launch of the new music & event series, FOUND, throwing parties across London with a focus on deeper, progressive programming in electronic music. Bringing together 13 back-to-back club nights at South London's Hidden club, they curated ten established promoters to introduce more than 200 artists to represent the sounds of the future.
This intro still gives me goosebumps. That deep house influenced strain of garage that just kills it in the clubs
Cementing the UK's reputation as the number one destination for house and bass-led electronic music, FOUND’s careful music programming has brought together artists from Urban Nerds, Eglo Records, Hyperdub, Dirtybird and Swamp81. This February, they'll be presenting the new line-ups kicking off with this weekend's party with London producer Mosca, garage legend DJ EZ, and Matt Jam Lamont. Ahead of the night, Mosca gives us a tip-off for his top five garage tunes in his life to prep us for the revival...
MOSCA'S TOP 5 GARAGE JAMS
Gant - All Night Long (Clay & Deller's Industry Standard Dub Plate Mix)
This intro still gives me goosebumps. That deep house influenced strain of garage that just kills it in the clubs.
Sly - Let Me Take You On A Ride
Jeremy Sylvester on the buttons, this is about as dark and sexy as they come.
Ultymate - Sweet Love (Got Me) (UVM's Got Me Goin' Dub)
Another off-sounding roller, this for me is near-perfect garage music.
Bizzi - Bizzi's Party (Booker T's Vocal Lick)
I normally go for the moodier side of garage but this is just joyous soulful party music as it should be done.
De'Lacy - Hideaway (187 Lockdown Hidden Vocal Dub)
Choice bit of speed garage with that classic Reese bass and diva vocals.
Mosca plays at FOUND, Multi:Ply & Days Like That present: Heritage February 24th at Hidden, 100 Tinworth Street, Vauxhall, London SE11 5EQ
