Maurice is the facedown concept of a experienced Swiss dj who has been active in Europe for the last 10 years. After spinning records in most of the best clubs of his country, he decided to go underground again and go deep into production.
2011 is his year. After a long period of deep work, where no barriers are to entry, no governing body, and no rules given, his productions will finally come out on the Swiss label Freedom Soundz, the imprint of the gran Alex Attias. Alex Attias is known for his international dj career and for his productions for on labels like Planet E, Compost Black or Mule to name just a few. Alex Attias’ recognition is an honor for Maurice, and a good drive for his futur as producer. More tracks are due to come out in 2011.
In the beginning there was Jack … and Jack had a groove
And from this groove came the grooves of all grooves.
And while one day viciously throwing down on his box,
Jack boldly declared “Let There Be House” and House music was born.
“I am you see, I am the creator and this is my house
And in my house there is only House Music.
But I am not so selfish because once you enter my house
it then becomes our house and our House Music.
And, you see, no one man owns house
because House Music is a universal language spoken and understood by all.
You see, House is a feeling that no one can understand
really unless you’re deep into the vibe of House.
House is an uncontrollable desire to Jack your body.
And as I told you before this is our House and our House Music.
And every House you understand there is a keeper.
And in this house the keeper is Jack.
Now some of you might wonder who is Jack and what is it that Jack does.
Jack is the one who gives you the power to Jack your body!
Jack is the one who gives you the power to do the snake!
Jack is the one who gives you the key to the wiggly worm!
Jack is the one who learns you how to whop your body!
Jack is the one that can bring nations and nations of all Jackers together under one house!
You may be black, you may be white, you may be Jew or Gentile.
It don’t make a difference in our house. And this is fresh!”
