This mix sees Mosca step out as a fully-fledged house and techno artist

It's a ride that starts soft and hazy, brushed-metal rollers blending seamlessly into each other, and then runs right into a suitably wired zone where tracks feel hardened and full of electrified tension. This hour and a half represents exactly where Mosca is at right now.

Ever since finding insta-fame with breakout garage banger 'Bax' in 2011, he's steadily steered his sound away from the bright lights of UK bass and toward the darker, more dimly lit side of dance music. He cut his teeth on Numbers and Night Slugs around the turn of the decade but chose Martyn's 3024 and leading UK underground label Hypercolour for his subsequent releases, a calculated decision that marked him out as an artist looking to mature and evolve into the world of four-to-the-floor.

2014 sees the Londoner launch his own label, Not So Much, and a double A-side 12" containing the taught, stripped-back movements of 'Suckle (Twenties)' and 'Vinnie (Flamingo)'. He's says the tracks are for basements and warehouses and that they're dark but sexy. And he's pretty much right; this is music for the heads that party with serious intent.

He's now a world away from the bashy, gun finger hype of 'Bax'. You'll have noticed the change if you've seen him play out. The last couple of years have seen him hone a staunch house and techno style (even if his dress sense remains decidedly rude) and now you could say a transformation has been completed. There's no tracklist for this exclusive In Session mix, just a vibe. Enjoy.
