Rotterdam’s top producer – Moods released his hugely anticipated debut album ‘Zoom Out’ late last year to much fanfare from critics across the blogosphere, worldwide radio stations and press, not to mention his loyal thousands-strong fanbase. It was a stellar record that saw him add to his already impressive list of tastemaker champions and led to collaborations with rap superstar Logic and the first lady of Brainfeeder – Georgia Anne Muldrow.
And it’s fair to say that the standout track on it was ‘Comfortable (feat.HIGH HØØPS)’ – posting incredible figures in excess of 7 million streams to date on Spotify amongst a host of support for Moods. Now it gets an extra special full release with a single package featuring the original version, two stellar remixes and an official video.
Dance crew and Boogie Angst label heads Kraak & Smaak contribute their ‘Hangmat remix’ taking the track off in a summery electro funk direction. It’s absolutely stacked full of vibes, channeling the likes of Roy Ayers, Central Line with their instrumentation underneath HIGH HØØPS’ modern and sleek vocal line. Meanwhile fellow Dutch producer Knight One comes correct with a retro inspired rework that boasts a slew of soft synths and some big 80’s guitar moments.
Sidekick Music had to catch up with Nick — aka Moods — to know a bit more about this re-release package, discuss music, secret plans, and many more.
Hey Nick, such a pleasure to have you! So, could you introduce yourself in a few words?
You’re always experimenting new sounds. Is it important for you not to stick in just one genre?
