MOKSI Talk About Their Upcoming EP, Upcoming It’s The Ship 2018 Performance, Indian Debut & More
Samir and Diego, the Dutch duo better known as Moksi have been smashing festival stages, club dancefloors with their versatile tunes. Previosuly the duo has remixed for the top guns such as DJ Snake (‘Propaganda’), Valentino Khan (‘Deep Down Low’), Hardwell (‘Mad World’) and Yellow Claw (‘Till it Hurts’, ‘Feel It’, ‘No Class’). With more than 45 releases, the duo is all set to dominate the scene. They have been rapidly growing in popularity, thanks to their unique style of bass-house and their signing to Yellow Claw’s Barong Family label back in 2015.
We got an amazing opportunity to chat with the duo before the bring their top notch bass house vibes to Its The Ship 2018:
1. Hey Samir & Diego, the name “Moksi” has been conquering almost every bass house charts and festival rosters. How do you feel at this moment?
Moksi: We feel great! It’s been a crazy year, we travelled to every part of the world and we had some amazing shows. We’re blessed.
2. Can you guys tell us about your relationship with the Barong Family imprint?
Moksi: Barong Family was there since day one and pushed us to where we are now. We released great volumes of music there and we definitely consider this our lifetime home base. Like visiting mom and dad. 😉
3. What is the weirdest thing you have ever experienced at any of your performances?
4. Which is your favorite genre: Grime, Garage & Two-step?
5. What special stuff do you have to drop at ITS THE SHIP 2018?
Moksi: We’re gonna play a lot of new music! Just finishing up our new EP and Singapore is the perfect spot to test it out!
A house party can be the perfect place for creative minds to sync. It happened with Samir and Diego, the Dutch duo better known as Moksi, although it took a few years for them to perfect their kaleidoscopic sound of screaming leads and bass#ITSSG18 #ITSTHESHIP #MOTHER5HIP pic.twitter.com/39NRMpu4rM

6. 2017 was a huge year for Moksi. Can you share a bit of your work with Hardwell and DJ SNAKE?
Moksi: We know Hardwell for over 10 years now. We were friends far before the big success. So this collab was just a text away and we finished in under 2 days. Our brother DJ Snake came to us with an idea for a song. We were HOOKED and Pigalle was created within 7 days. One of our all time favorite Moksi songs.
7. You guys are making your way to India next month for the first time, what do you expect?
Moksi: Friends tell us India has one of the sickest crowds, excited. Also; Sam is a big Indian curry fan. So we’re gonna eat a lot. Haha.
