Dance Music’s Moska Serves Up Bruno Mars Remix
While dropping an exclusive preview of his heart-pounding, club-rocking remix of “Her World Goes On” (featuring the seductive vocals of Bruno Mars), Daniel Amézquita (aka DJ Moska) gives VIBE the lowdown on the Dirty Dutch sound, his jet-set schedule and where you can find the hottest women in the club circuit. Follow the jump to catch our exclusive interview with the piping hot Colombian producer:
VIBE: What is it about the Dirty Dutch sound that first inspired you?
Moska: Definitely the sound of guys like Laidback Luke, Sidney Samson, Chuckie and Afrojack…I really love their styles!
Describe your sound at this moment in TWO WORDS.
What inspired this Bruno Mars Remix?
I wanted something really big so I decided to go a little hard style with the kick. Definitely the hard was an inspiration; big chords and big gabbers kicks.
Having seen Sensation when you first started and wanting to be there, to performing at Tomorrowland (also produced by ID&T) you’re an example of “you can do anything if you put your mind to it.” That said: What’s your advice to budding producers?
My main advice is: Produce music with passion, not for money and fame. Try to learn by yourself, that way you will create your own style and flow and never give up, you can make good quality music with just a laptop and pair of headphones so keep going!
Anyone you’ve been listening to lately?
Culprate and Cheeroke, those guys kill the game with their tracks!
You’ve partied and toured the world from Colombia to Miami… Where are the ladies the sexiest?
This is a good question. In my country you will find the best and MOST beautiful and sexy women in the world!
What’s next for Moska this summer/fall?
Music wise you will see a lot of big collaborations with names like: Leon Bolier, Major Lazer, Laidback Luke and GTA. As far as performances go I have shows in Vegas (Hakkasan & Wet Republic) New York (Gobernos Island) and Los Angeles (Exchange). I will be performing in Boom, Belgium at Tomorrowland and will be at Tomorrowworld too. I will also have a bus tour in October with Laidback Luke, it’s a lot of wor and a lot of fun! Hopefully I can play close to you guys, so be tuned!
