Techno was created and developed far away from the mainstream. The underground sound got its deserved popularity in the past few years but there is a lot of movement in sound with sub-genres and a lot of talent you may not hear about.
We believe underground producers and labels deserve special recognition, so we will be dedicating our new feature series to this cause.
Rotterdam-born Bas Mooy has been active on many fronts in the techno scene since 1999. Heavily influenced by a city that breathes industrial-strength twenty-four-seven, he gradually found his way into creating a unique dark sound, which led him to the forefront of the European techno scene.
In 2002 he kickstarted the already legendary Audio Assault record label which resulted in the birth of sublabel Arms one year later. His today’s music selection determines the quality of dark techno.
For many years he has been a member of the Rotterdam underground collective ‘Strictly Techno’, creators of over a hundred legendary parties since 1996. Bas has played at many ‘top of the bill’ clubs and festivals around the globe and is a regular guest at the highly respected Awakenings parties in Holland.
Over the years Bas has been a hard working and devoted producer, spending many hours in the studio and putting out music on respected labels such as Mote Evolver, Perc Trax, CLR, Sleaze Records, Planet Rhythm and of course his own imprints Audio Assault and Mord. With the current rise of Mord, Bas shows no sign of slowing down.
