Move D, J-Me
Recognised as one of the best deep-house DJs in the world today, and one of the most accomplished producers, Move D (David Moufang) brings his bag of tricks to LowerState on Sat Sept 19th.
Many will remember 2008 as Moufang's year. His album Songs From the Beehive (a collaboration with Benjamin Brunn) received 2nd best album of the year on Resident Advisor, coming ahead of Flying Lotus and Hercules & Love Affair. It's a work which draws you into its own soundscape, one that melds solid beats and liquid atmospheres into a musical substance that’s soothing and yielding, but yet complex. Aside from churning out some of the best deep-house EPs in '08 (Quit Quittin/Drone/Honey) on A-list labels like SmallVille, Workshop, Running Back, City Centre Offices, Four:Twenty and Simple, winning Beatport's Deep-House Artist of the Year award, and with live performances on a par with (if not superior to) his studio work, he is world-renowned and highly in demand as a DJ, regularly on the roster of Cube, Warehouse Project and Fabric. He even made RA's top 100 DJs of 2008, coming a not too shabby 23rd and beating the likes of Erol Alkan, Steve Bug and Claude VonStroke in the vote. Well known as a vinyl DJ, it seems a big part of what D insists on is not just the physicality of records, but the way vinyl, as an instrument and a physical object, makes you move when you move it, and as it's moving. That's the "move" in Move D, and it's something that keeps Moufang coming back to the groove: "The groove is fundamental for dancing. But also, your entire body and biorhythms are a matter of groove. Of course, there are trends and fashions, but essentially a groove is a groove and will be a groove". D is for deep, but his music? That's for moving to.
He is joined on the night by a live set from LowerState's J-Me (the artist formerly known as Audiofeen) and a Dj set from new recruit Tomas. Admission is €13 and doors are at 10.30. For more information, including concessions, visit www.lowerstate.ie.
