Moods is a community resource, archive, and mix series by Techno fans where they explore their tastes, influences, and inspirations outside of the genre. It's a place to hear where people came from and explain why that matters.
I'm Daniel, where I often go as Endash when I'm playing or producing shows from Detroit to NYC. I love techno, I love its community, and I love supporting it - but too often I and others forget about everything else. We don't give each other enough time to hear how other genres inform who we are, how we listen, what we like, and why others like it too.
Moods began as a way to fix that. Once a month, I'm inviting techno fans, supporters, producers, DJs, promoters, event managers, booking agents, and record label owners to highlight an hour of music they love outside of techno. What did they listen to when they grew up? What led them to techno? What's their pre-ki warm up ki? These sets will give each Mood maker a chance to celebrate touchstones in sound from jazz to reggae to dupstep to rap. Sometimes you'll know who they are, sometimes you won't, so hopefully we all learn some things along the way.
You're welcome to help pay and pave the way by giving $1, $4, or $20 a month for early access, discounts, and guest list for porties. This money goes to each artist, who gets paid $35 for participating in Moods. They can then decide to either keep the amount or donate it to a local music nonprofit or charity. The rest of the money helps us make ****new merch****, host events, and pay for a Soundcloud subscription.
Deal? More like steal! Join today to support the artists, genre, and community we love and need.
