Take 5 With Moss

Fresh off being crowned champion of triple j Unearthed’s 2021 DIY Supergroup, Brisbane-based, Indigenous producer  Moss officially released ‘SABRE TEETH (feat. Genesis Owusu)and announces his signing to October Records. To get to know Moss a little better, he’s shared with us five singles that have been his biggest influence and why.

Jack Ü – To Ü (feat. Aluna George)

When this first dropped I was stunned. This was sonically so different from anything else out there and I remember dropping it every. single. set. Without a doubt it went off every time and I still have trouble fathoming how Skrillex x Diplo did it.

Pendulum – Slam

The Hold Your Colour album was my earliest exposure to Drum & Bass and bass music as a whole. The intro of Slam with its towering brass and swung hip-hop beat is flawless. Rhythmically and sonically this does it for me.

Porter Robinson – Flicker

When worlds was released, a lot changed across the music scene. The way Porter captures emotions but also makes these records so big really hit home. RL Grime also played a huge role at this time for me with how he made everything sound like it was being played on a gigantic festival stage.

Hans Zimmer – Time

What a masterpiece. I remember watching Inception and being blown away by the score alone. This piece holds a special place in my heart and is a big inspiration behind a lot of the cinematic choices in my tracks.

KOAN Sound – Starlite

Beautiful. Everything about this track resonates so much with me. The precision and flow of acoustic meeting electronic sounds – I have this on repeat on long drives and when it’s pouring rain. I take a lot away from the care and attention to detail KOAN Sound have taken in this.

Moss is certainly making waves amongst his peers as a producer on the rise and one to watch. His single, Sabre Teeth feat. Genesis Owusu is available now, everywhere.
