DTE x MORD Showcase: Bas Mooy + Uun
Mord is from Rotterdam.
Mord is short for Morderstwo.
Mord is a label project by Bas Mooy.
We are very excited to announce a MORD Records showcase featuring label boss Bas Mooy and Detroit-based selector Uun. This will be the SF debut for both artists. Opening the main room is DTE's newest resident, live set wiz kid, and West Oakland resident Indy Nyles. In the back room local acid hero Tyrel Williams is going all night.
This will be a great night of music, homies, and vibes that you don't want to miss!
Rotterdam home-based dj/producer Bas Mooy has been
active on many fronts in the techno scene since 1999. Heavily influenced by a city that breaths industrial strength twenty-fourseven, he gradually found his way into creating an unique dark
sound, which lead him to the forefront of the European techno scene.
In 2002 he kickstarted the already legendary Audio Assault record label with label partner Jeroen Liebregts aka Radial, which resulted in the birth of sublabel Arms one year later. Since then the Audio Assault family built a strong and constantly growing fan-base worldwide, showcasing an impressive catalogue with a constant output of stand out twelve inches, setting the standard for today’s quality dark techno.
For many years he has been a member of the Rotterdam underground collective ‘Strictly Techno’, creators of over a hundred legendary parties since 1996. Bas has played at many ‘top of the
bill’ clubs and festivals around the globe and is a regular guest at
the highly respected Awakenings parties in Holland.
Over the years Bas has been a hard working and devoted producer, spending many hours in the studio and putting out music on respected labels such as Mote Evolver, Perc Trax, CLR, Sleaze Records, Planet Rhythm and of course his own imprints Audio Assault and Mord. With the current rise of Mord, Bas shows no sign of slowing down!
Coming up in the music scene of Kansas City and currently residing in Detroit, Uun developed his interest in the fringes of sound as a guitarist in multiple bands before turning his focus to techno. Both his early work as a band member and his current work as a techno producer share a common exploration of darkness both in mood and in execution. Hard Wax described Uun's sound as a "straight ahead techno juggernaut."
In late 2016 Uun created his own imprint as a platform to showcase the diversity of his productions. Titled Ego Death, the label explores themes of existentialism, duality, and what it means to be an artist in the modern era. Now on it's fifth release, each strives to create a unique and varied atmosphere.
Currently his primary form of performance is a live set consisting of all original material. These performances take his previous skills as a DJ / multi-instrumentalist and blends them with his love of sound design and production all while maintaining an attention to the dance floor.
