Atmosphere and 160 tears from Reprezent Radio staple Mo.
Being one of the voices of Channel 4 & E4, as well as holding down Saturday Drivetime on London’s Reprezent Radio – showcasing a wealth of left-field music that’s being produced across the world – and most recently presenting a six-month specialist residency on Catalunya’s Flaix FM, the media seems to be a fitting and comfortable second home for Mo. Having introduced the likes of BSN Posse, Manul y Energyman and Lala &ce 667 to new audiences on-air, the Scouse-Egyptian selector truly embodies the notion of “The world ain’t so big now” both sonically and in being, using his breadth and knowledge of languages and cultures across to his selections.
A regular name amongst DJs in Barcelona across venues such as Sala Apolo and Garage 442, along with being one of the resident of Misdigest – a collective bridging the gap between the UK and Spain’s emerging underground bass scenes – too, Mo’s constantly bringing his heritage and emotion to sets via 160, weaving Jungle & Footwork into pitched down rap cuts & Arabian classics before flicking back to juke & altered DnB edits.
Recording the mix after a break-up, Mo mentions that “this is one for anyone who just needs to shed a couple and get in their feels,” aptly titling the mix ‘Atmosphere & 160 tears’.
