MUSIC
OVERVIEW

The Moods are a nine-piece collective of producers, poets and musicians from the Northwest of England. Combining drum & bass, reggae, hip-hop and EDM, The Moods’ mighty music sparks off a contagious need to dance, underpinned, with real grit & substance. They are a band with plenty to say, singing and rapping with raw passion about the important stuff like war, famine, love, life and death. This is music for the head & heart, “They will make you dance, and then they’ll make you think”.

BIOGRAPHY

Mancunian 9-piece party band The Moods are borne out of a celebration of their home city's musical heritage. But it’s not what you think; Whilst the majority of Mancunian bands are jangly, guitar-based indie bands, The Moods definitely are not. Instead they celebrate the city’s rich heritage in dance music. For a city which brought House music to the UK, this is surprisingly something of a rarity. 

 

Inspired by nights out raving to DJs who played old-school House, Drum & Bass, Dubstep and Jungle they noticed a distinct lack of bands who delved into these genres. This led to a collection of unlikely accomplices to join forces. Classically trained musicians, council estate rappers and bedroom producers all aligned to bring these typically DJ dominated genres to the live stage.  

 

On paper this should never work. Two live drummers, a violinist and a trumpet player join bass and synths to produce an unusual line up of musicians. Throw a poet, a singer and a rapper into the equation and the result is as enthralling as it is unorthodox. The Moods live shows have built something of a reputation for being one of the most energetic on the circuit and once you see them live, you will understand how easy it is to get swept away in the raucous atmosphere they create.
