Nicole Moudaber plots a full-length debut for Adam Beyer's Drumcode

By Dan Carter

Led by the passion to unite people with her music, and jailed for exorcising those demons within narrow-minded society, Nicole Moudaber’s global techno overhaul has been as socially charged as it has creatively balanced.

Without cashing in on her female prominence in the electronic music industry, Moudaber’s ability to hold the ranks alongside Carl Cox and Adam Beyer alike has seen the dark and melodically refined exploits of her studio work reign mercilessly over a movement too often cast under the shadows of the great clubbing spectrum.

For 2012, however, her globetrotting ventures between Ibiza, the US, and Australia signaled hope yet for the future of techno and her likeminded peers. Beatport News sat down with Moudaber during Carl Cox’s 500th radio broadcast during Amsterdam Dance Event to talk discovering techno, musical insurgency, and her forthcoming artist album for Beyer’s Drumcode imprint.

Killer Comp

Various Artists - A-Sides

In the realm of hard techno, few labels hold a candle to Adam Beyer‘s renowned Drumcode in terms of quality, consistency, and longevity. This new compilation—born from the simple idea that some great tunes don’t have a equally compelling b-side to make worth releasing—offers incredible bang for the buck, with 11 cuts by Drumcode producers new and familiar, and a guarantee of no filler tunes on the B2 side.
