I adore music made by badass women, and there is no one more badass in the EDM scene than Nicole Moudaber. She’s teamed up with Skin, frontwoman of Skunk Anansie, one of the sexiest bands to come out of the nineties on a new EP, and you can bet that it’s fucking amazing.
The ambassador of dark and sensual techno joining forces with an icon of fashion, music and everything gorgeous – Nicole and Skin are a match made in both heaven and hell. Nigerian born and Lebanese raised, Nicole drew from her vast experience in the industry, working as a promoter and label manager before crossing over to the otherside, before becoming an artist herself – and now a household name in the world of techo. An established DJ in her own right, Skin lent her voice and songwriting abilities to Moudaber’s talent as a producer to create Breed, a piece of work that is sure to become one of the most celebrated conceptual projects in techno. The album will be dropping into the eager hands of fans on September 18th, and for those of us with no patience, it will also be available exclusively on Beatport for two weeks via Nicole’s own imprint MOOD Records.
Now if you’re REALLY impatient, like me, then you can get your first taste of Breed right here, by watching the captivating video for “Someone like you” right here. Skin’s inimitable vocals sit perfectly over Nicole’s trademark dark and brooding techno beats, Reminicscent of the heady, hazy techno of the early 2000s but with a modern edge. The visually stimulating piece of art takes hold of your eyes as the inky black and clean white of the video ebbs and flows with the fluid motion of its two stunning stars, none other than Skin and Nicole themselves.
