There can be no ignoring Moguai’s phenomenal success within the cutthroat world of pop music. Having already had hit flings with the ‘who’s who’ of A-list pop starlets – Britney Spears check, Robyn check, Girls Aloud check – the German titan now works his way to the very top of the pile and takes it upon himself to remix the biggest pop star in the world right now, Miss Beyoncé Knowles!
This epic news should come as no surprise though. Moguai has become THE go-to man for remixes this summer – Dutch house maestro Afrojack, EDM royalty Underworld, and the aforementioned Britney and Robyn have all received a healthy sprinkling of Moguai’s magic, and all in the space of 3 months! So when Beyoncé decided she needed a remix for her latest single “Best Thing I Never Had”, where was she to go? Well, straight to the top of the pile of course. To our man Moguai!
The record itself is another piece of technical genius. With spine-wrenching kicks setting the tone from the off, complex layers of bottom end and celestial vocal samples begin to emerge throughout the intro, only to be hijacked by a series of infectious siren stabs. The energy of the mix is rapidly subdued by a heavenly breakdown – with the dulcet tones of B.K. stealing the show – but it’s not long before this moment of calm descends into utter tech-fuelled chaos as Moguai delivers yet another masterclass in remixology.
Our now on Jive, only one question remains – who could possibly be next on Moguai’s remix hit list? With an upcoming album on Mau5trap, a looming Asian tour and a very big collaboration – things are about to go through the roof.
