We have another New York and ReSolute debut for closing out the fast month that has been September. Canada born, Berlin based music mastermind The Mole, will be appearing Stateside for the first time in 21 years.
For a man for whom a record bag is so much more than the sum of its parts, every gig is a big deal. And if you’ve ever had the chance to catch him in action—be it DJing or jumping from his MPC to a sole turntable, you’d agree.
Low-key and loved by many, the rambling capitán of Maybe Tomorrow boasts a steadfast commitment to keeping it groovy above all. “And weird!” A normally elusive creature, The Mole can be found most at home behind a DJ booth during the wee smoky hours in the midst of long, drawn-out sets. The more time for injecting a bit of Marvin Gaye here, some Mercedes Sosa there, the better. Known for his love of sonic collage and musical noodling, he boasts a long and colourful list of releases—for labels like Perlon, Ostgut Ton, Slices of Life, Haunt, Musique Risquée, New Kanada, Internasjonal and longtime home Wagon Repair. It’s this refreshing humility and a genuine love for music that make The Mole—an artist with a career spanning over 20 years.
Joining him is Lawrence, who joined our ReSolute roster after making an impressive debut last year alongside the unforgettable Melchior Productions Ltd. Live show. Delivering what people grew to love: subtle but playful house and techno music, equally vulnerable and liberating. With Lawrence being a true collaborator, there should be hardly anyone interested in contemporary electronic music who has not been touched by his work in one small way or the other. A fleeting moment on a dancefloor, at home wearing headphones or holding a stunningly designed record sleeve. Together with like-minded artists, Lawrence laid the groundwork for his presence co-founding the free-spirited labels DIAL in 2000 and SMALLVILLE in 2005.
With these two taste makers on board, this weekend promises to be a musical journey where we can expect anything but the ordinary!
