‘Music is the ladder to the soul’
Moritz Pommer aka Mohig started collecting records at the age of 15. Influenced by the golden era rap culture, underground mixtapes as well as UK Jungle vibes, rampant in Mannheim (Germany) and surroundings, where he spent the first 16 years of his life.
Short after seeing Drum ‘n’ Bass legend LTJ Bukem on a rave, and some disappointing piano lessons, he took all his savings to get himself a set of turntables. All he wanted now was mixing these crazy broken beats.
He got into producing hip hop beats and leftfield sounds on an AKAI S20 sampler just about two years later. This eclectic approach to music combined with a great international circle of friends got him into playing DJ gigs early on, Prague, London, Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam, amongst others.
After years of studies and corporate work, it was 2015 when Mohig decided to dive back into music, embracing the digital age that brought about fascinating new sounds and possibilities.
He’s experimenting with organic, jazzy elements and live beats as opposed to strictly synthesised sounds in his productions. Expect Mohig to continue bringing weird and versatile sonic dynamics into life by experimenting with real instruments and organic, off-the-grid, samples. Recently he started releasing on respected house labels such as King Street NYC, Tilly Jam and others.
As one half of the DJ / producer-duo Afroschnitzel, he also digs deeper into the afro-vibes, flaring his musical portfolio. On February 17, 2017, their track ‘Spoiler Room’ on MoBlack Records charted number 1 on the iTunes dance charts in Kenya.
