Moods is the project of Rotterdam-based producer Nick Lubbersen.
Having already established himself as one of the most exciting prospects in electronic music with his slinky original productions and tight, crisp mixes the man is in demand right now. Recent collaborations and remixes with the likes of Two Another, Pip Millett, and Bondax have enhanced his reputation further and on Spotify he has received in excess of 60 million streams.
Announcing himself with a style that owed much to the soulful producers like Pete Rock, J Dilla, and Nujabes, Moods’ early beats quickly began gaining traction online and started building an impressive following after winning favour with several key tastemaker blogs. Before long he attracted the attention of Dutch dance music royalty – Kraak & Smaak and they requested he remix their track ‘Don’t Let People’ on their 2013 release ‘Chrome Waves Remixed’. The mix he turned in impressed them so much he became the first signing to their newly formed imprint ‘Boogie Angst’.
Three EP’s and a debut album later his support to date reads like a who’s who of tastemakers… Blogs including the likes of Majestic Casual, Indie Shuffle, Complex, La Belle Musique and The Sound You Need have all lauded his productions, while the story with radio is much the same. Mistajam, Monki and Jamz Supernova are consistent champions for his work across BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra while in the US he enjoys regular play on key stations including KCRW and Sirius XM.
