Mo.Ya.G is the brainchild of Yalopa and Deep Moodsetter, they made their first appearance on BIG Speaker earlier this year with ‘Can You Dance’ and are now back with ‘House Music (All Night Long)’ a deep affair. Heartwarming with all the old school influences you’d expect from a BIG Speaker release. Speaking comes right with an evening workout too just in case. One for basement clubs and lowlights.
We have had the pleasure of speaking with the producer, and this has been the result.
Can you tell us a little about your experience? Where are you from / how did you get into music?
Mo.Ya.G is from Belgium. Mr. Yalopa has been producing somewhat longer than Deep Moodsetter, although Moodsetter already had a worldwide picture disk vinyl EP in 2014 released as 'BacktrackDaddies'. We knew each other more as Deep house dj's as Moodsetter has been inviting Yalopa frequently in Beachbars and his radio shows. We got into music by going to the clubs and hearing the this wonderful music. Yalopa is also musically schooled and plays the piano.
How is your sound evolving? What artists and genres do you enjoy mixing right now? From a basic sound over to a more complex and more 'party' sound, still trying to stay true to the deep moodsetting of the underground. We differ somewhat, Yalopa tends to play the easy loungy beach type of house music. Deep Moodsetter has a broader scope on music. He's protray's himself as being 'a New Waver playing Deep House' - this means that he tends to mix up darker 80s wave type of electronic music with deep moody house. How do you feel that your music influences or impacts your listeners? We hope we make people dance, we hope they feel the mood and the vibes and the honesty in our selection.
What projects are you working on right now? What can you tell us about your last job? Joe Ventura did a shout-out for Deep Moodsetter's radio show and this immediately gave Deep Moodsetter the idea. Yalopa made his version of it and from that point on we consolidated the two ideas into one. So the BIG BOSS of BIG SPEAKER RECORDS was the inspiration. We also have another one lined up, One of our tracks that will be next to be released is 'Not Staying home' We are not pessimistic, I think we have respectfully always gotten together in safe way and enjoy life as much as possible Where are you and what have you been doing now?
We are IT consultants today was an office day... but always with (House)music in the background. I all honesty, I (Deep Moodsetter) multitasked as I was doing presentation adjustment and mixing up the selection for my radio show. Yalopa: rushing from one online meeting to the next one Has that sound changed a lot in recent years? What is your musical criteria? Honest, deep, moody is the criteria for our music. Do you feel safe now to play a more experimental sound? Sure, I like to be influenced all over the place. Yalopa used to be a Drum'n'Bass dj and loves a good Metal concert. Deep tends to be more Goth, Dark romantics influenced. Hence the techhouse vibes the mixes and some flavored remixes.
