Exclusive interview: New Dance Music Friday with MOGUAI
Sep 14, 2018
We proudly present the New Dance Music Friday feature, your weekly update on all newly released dance tracks, brought together on one amazing playlist. Featured this week (among many others): MOGUAI! He releases his new single 'The Greatest Speech' (feat. The Great Dictator) together with Raumakustik today, and talks about the creation of it in this exclusive interview.
Hey, you are releasing your new single 'Insane' (feat Sibbyl) today. How did you create this?
"Heyhooo…;) Raumakustik and me wanted to produce a follow up for 'Sometimes', our latest collab and then we ended up with this track, but we produced it first as an instrumental. I always wanted to do something with the well-known Charlie Chaplin speech. The Greatest Speech written by him in 1940 is the best speech of all time. The message is still very relevant after so many years. That's why we decided to take this speech and luckily it fitted 110% atmosphere wise in our track!"
What does this record say about your musical evolution as an artist?
"Right now, I'm going more and more back to my roots! I don't want to say back to the oldskool, but producing more for the club! Back in the days when I started making music, I only produced tracks for my DJ sets and that's what it's all about in the electronic music world. Tracks that make people dance!"
The track is featured on Spinnin’s New Dance Music Friday playlist. How important is streaming to you?
"Streaming for me is very important, so I can easily reach people all around the world. Especially for this song, it’s super important for me - to spread this message!! What happens in the world nowadays worries me a lot. So, I asked myself: What can I do? I really hope that people listen to this song and think about the message and that this little piece of music helps a bit for a better world! Please listen and think about it."
