New Audio: DJ Moar Teams Up with Sadat X and El Da Sensei on a Boom Bap-Inspired Banger

DJ Moar is an acclaimed Nantes, France-based co-founder of Trad Vibe Records, host of the Free Your Mind Radio Show on Radio Meuh and a DJ, producer and remixer, who has released material as DJ Moar, Jay Airiness — and is one-half of of the indie dance project Venice Beach. As a producer, the Nantes-based DJ and producer has remixed the work of artists like DJ Cam, Cortex, Lord Funk, La Cliqua’s Kohndo, Sarsha Simone, Anais, Goodka, Raashan Ahmad, Dee Nasty, DJ Apt One, Marie & Les Garcons and Escort. 

“Destroying the Track,” the acclaimed French DJ, producer and remixer’s latest single is an old-school inspired bit of tweeter and woofer rocker boom-bap with a distorted and looped horn sample and twinkling keys that features verses from the legendary and Sadat X and El Da Sensei. Individually, each artist has been in the game for several decades as members of beloved groups and as solo artists an as a result, the track finds the grizzled vets, still showing the young cats that they’ve not only got it — but that’s a there’s a reason that they’ve had the longevity they’ve achieved: they ain’t with the bullshit and they spit fire. 

New Video: Jay Airiness Releases a Summery and Soulful Club Banger

DJ Moar is a Nantes, France-based DJ, producer and remixer, best known for his production work with nu-disco outfit Venice Beach — and for releasing material through Rare Wiri, Spa in Disco, ZE Records, Elevate Melodies, Editorial Records, Emerald & Doreen Records, Trad Vibe Records and others. The Nantes-based DJ, producer and remixer has a solo side project, which he has dubbed Jay Airness. 

With Jay Airness, DJ Moar specializes in a deep house/nu-disco sound that possesses subtle elements of jazz and hip-hop. DJ Moar’s latest Jay Airness single “Smooth Flyin'” is a summery club banger centered around Nile Rodgers-like funk guitar, a soulful sax line, shimmering and ethereal flutes and copious amounts of congo that reminds me — to my ears, at least — of Between Two Sides-era Octo Octa and classic Frankie Knuckles house: in other words, warm and sensual but while subtly nodding at world music. 

The recently released video for “Smooth Flyin'” features old-timey looking aerial footage over beachside resorts. Watching this has me nostalgic for summer afternoons at Coney Island drinking cold Coney Island Mermaid Pilsners and eating at Nathan’s. Ah, memories!
