We spoke to Sebastian Genz aka Moomin over Skype to discover more behind the makings of his new album ‘A Minor Thought’, his introduction into producing music and his approach with using samples to create his distinct blend of deep, soulful house music.
For his sophomore long-player, coming a stately five years after its predecessor, Moomin has not tweaked the formula all that much. The pleasures are to be found in the same place as always: in subtle variations that reward over time and atmospheres as smooth as butter.
Bixon return to London to lay down a new series of events at BarABar in Stoke Newington. First up a world great; Moomin keeping it tight on Hamburg’s Smallville Records, Tristen’s Aim imprint and his own label Closer.
