Moscoman

Moscoman’s most cherished Israeli love songs

Since his first release in 2013, Moscoman’s profile has been constantly on the rise. Hailing from Tel Aviv, his productions have landed via the likes of ESP Institute, Correspondant, I’m a Cliche and Eskimo Rec, whilst in 2015 he introduced label Disco Halal to the masses, reissuing kaleidoscopic fragments of found Middle Eastern sounds and bringing forth collaborations with friends Red Axes and Krikor.

Currently based in Berlin, Moscoman blends elements of techno, new wave and house with the sounds of his native Middle East, demonstrating a unique ability to reshape obscure musical movements for the modern day dance floor via both his productions and DJ sets.

His latest project ‘Treisar’ sees him continue his busy schedule, creating the vinyl-only label to release a string of twelve solo releases throughout 2017. The latest in the series comes in the form of the Donkey Jumps Ahead EP, with three house-infused tracks that beam plenty of colourful qualities for the summer season.

Ahead of his performance at Farr Festival, Moscoman has found time in his calendar to share with us ten beloved pop songs from his home country. Check the full playlist and what he had to say about his selections below…

Israel is my home country so whilst these are love songs, to me they’re not all necessarily about romance and passion, but help me reminisce and connect with the place where I grew up, where my friends and family are. Although some of them definitely do carry some aphrodisiac qualities for sure.
