There is a bit of politics regarding chillaxing - who can do it, how much you are entitled to, how to go about it and even what to wear when doing so – but those discussions end when coming across a Moka Mafia release. Such is the lushness of his down-tempo ambience that all arguments, and not just the chillaxing one, wilt to a state of nothingness.

For Moka Mafia is another upstanding citizen of the island nation that is Free-Spirit Records, which sits proudly in the middle of the ocean of all things psychedelic, and the EP, Prologue, a fine example of the (other)worldliness he brings to the check-in counter when choosing to transverse our universality.

Consisting of three tracks of which there is a consistency in mood and encompassing the diversity of influences that the modern psy-trancer has access to. From dub-reggae to asiatic spiritualism, soothing flute melodies - performed by Alberto "Negro" Ramon - and even some foot stomping havin-it, these and other elements float in the nearness without ever fully taking over so that the listener can be taken to a destination of their own construction. Each one differing according to what they are endeavouring to achieve.

But hey isn’t that whole point of chillaxing, to strive for a certain state of being in which an individual can then lose themself? Works for me, how about you try it for yourself!

:: Moka Mafia Bio ::

 

 

Moka Mafia is the downtempo production project of Sardinian born DJ, Mononegro. He is a self trained pianist and played keyboards in several bands with a varied range of styles including experimental, psychedelic, folk, hip-hop, rock, metal and punk in his native Sardinia from the age of 17.

 

After buying his first Atari computer running Cubase he started writing electronic ambient music on his own and collaborating with other likeminded musicians alongside playing with bands.

 

In 1997 he moved to London and discovered the psychedelic party scene through Pendragon at the Brixton Academy and was inspired by the chill out rooms at parties such as Chichime, Astral Phoenix, Return To The Source and Fairy Tales to name a few. He began DJing in 2003 with his first set at Chichime and he has since DJ'd regularly in the London club and squat scene.

 

He later started collaborating with Alberto, a conservatory trained flutist from Bogota (Colombia), who he met in London while playing at a jam session in a pub with some common friends and began to set up his own studio, once again immersing himself into the writing process. He describes his music style as psychedelic ambient, dub and downtempo.
