‘Music is the ladder to the soul’
As a child of the 1980s, Moritz Pommer aka Mohig started collecting records at the age of 14.
Heavily influenced by the golden era rap culture, underground mixtapes and UK Jungle vibes, rampant in Mannheim (Germany) and surroundings at the time, where he spent the first 15 years of his life.
In these formative years, his higher self already knew music would be an integral part of everything in his life. He got himself turntables and started sound experimenting and DJing.
At the same time he got into producing hip hop beats and leftfield sounds on an AKAI S20 sampler. This eclectic approach got him into playing DJ gigs early on, Prague, London, Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam, to name a few.
In 2013 the artist name Mohig was initiated and it was once again time to dive back into music, experimenting with organic, jazzy elements and live beats as opposed to strictly synthesised sounds in his productions. Expect Mohig to deliver versatile sonic dynamics by experimenting with real instruments and organic, off-the-grid, samples. Recently he started releasing on King Street NYC, MoBlack Records, Tilly Jam, Kazukuta as well as on his own imprint.
As one half of the DJ / producer-duo Afroschnitzel, he digs deeper into 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.
