Nicole Moudaber is among the most established names in dance music as she has produced chart-topping hits, performed at renowned festivals around the globe, and runs MOOD Records and award-winning weekly radio show In The MOOD. Today, March 5, the techno queen takes her illustrious career to the next level with her latest EP, The Volume, which she cites as “the most important of her career.”
The two-track club EP, featuring legendary Club Space icon Alan T, is texturally varied and showcases Moudaber’s signature dark, rhythmic and smoldering sound. The title track is sonically diverse, beginning with hypnotic beats before building up to transfixing lyrics, pulsing bass lines and effervescent synths. “The Music Is Mine” offers pounding bass lines and spellbinding synths, creating a song designed for dance floor domination. Indeed, The Volume proves to be an impressive release from the MOOD Records label boss and was notably created during the beginning of the pandemic.
“[The Volume] is [the most important of my career] because it was a very, very difficult period for us performers and artists—like the rug was pulled from under us,” Moudaber says. “From being on 12 flights a week to none was quite daunting in the beginning, and for me to be able to come up with such a result for this EP is incredible.”
