Mooken was the first guy to ever put on Hudson Mohawke (with myself on hypeman duties) in Manchester in 2008. We all trooped down together with Lindsay Todd from Firecracker Records to see Moodyman play (behind a curtain for about 3 songs) and I’ll never forget waking up round Mooken’s place, hung over & groggy to pour over this enormous collection of prog, space disco & Drexciyan techno piled up in our room. It’s been a reality of making music a few years that we have friends we met early who have continued to grow up into the industry. Graduate up through the ranks if you will. So it was great to see Mooken hold down the other Sonar stage at the same time as us this year, playing directly after Matthew Herbert. Funny to think of the same dude that was so nice to us back then, sharing his house and last slice of toast with us now watching Herbert from the wings of the stage in Barcelona. Love my life.
