Fast rising Cologne based producer / singer / composer Moglii (Simon Ebener-Holscher) is poised to announce a brand new release with the arrival of ‘Face To Face’, a tantalisingly, intricate soul-pop gem laced with infectious vocal harmonies courtesy of Joel Montagud, singer of Berlin’s future-soul outfit, Lion Sphere.
Moglii says: “We wrote this song about our expectations towards a modern romance. A call for honesty especially in the fragility of a long-distance relationship. The promise that technology gives us nowadays is to bridge the gap between places and bring us closer together. Video calls or messaging can quickly create misunderstandings when this is the only form of communication. In the end nothing can substitute a face to face conversation.”
A classically trained jazz pianist whose characteristic production style comes from the mix of warm beats, analogue synthesisers and soulful vocal samples; Moglii complements his modern electronic compositions with acoustic instruments and an organic sound design comprising of samples he created himself and these together give birth to futuristic pop music. His music is influenced by Mura Masa, James Blake, Bon Iver and Flume.
Lauded by tastemaker press and peers alike, Moglii’s debut solo EP ‘Naboo’ amassed over 30 million streams globally and was described by Complex Magazine as ‘filled with spontaneity and charm’. Moglii made his indelible debut on the scene with a spirited performance with fellow Berlin artist Novaa on COLORS and traversed the globe showcasing his very own ‘organic electronic’ sound live alongside San Holo, Roosevelt, Elderbrook and festivals including The Great Escape, Dockville Festival and Reeperbahn Festival.
‘Face to Face’ featuring Lion Sphere is due on 4th September through Humming Records.
