We've got a longstanding affiliation with Nottingham. As wide-eyed kids we were regulars at Drop The Bomb, Stealth and Renaissance and spent a large amount of our hard-earned cash in Selecta Disc and Funky Monkey. It's always had a rich music scene, so it should come as no surprise that NG1's newest visionary is seriously delivering the goods.

It's safe to say we're pretty happy with how 2012 went. Moda Black went from strength to strength, with killer EP's from Hot Since 82, Tanzlife, PlezierMaxxi Soundsystem and many more.

With the festive period over, we thought it was about time we gave you a little update on what's going down with us and Moda...

First of all we need to say THANK YOU!!! We've been blown away by all the love for Moda Black over the past year, and scooping iTunes Dance Album of the Year was an incredible and totally unexpected end to 2012. Thank you for supporting the label and our artists, it means the world to us.  

Moda Black hits Fabric once again this December, as part of a festival-sized melting pot of electronic music. 

Being Christmas and all, we decided to invite some of our bestest friends along for the ride. The result?… A line-up that will have the every building in EC1 grappling for stability! 

Come join us for 8 hours of low-down, sweat-inducing, nocturnal tomfoolery at the legendary rave cavern they call Fabric.

Tickets have almost sold-out already, so please be quick.

See you there :)

Having already hosted the likes of Eats Everything, Shadow Child and Disclosure, our basement parties are quickly developing a serious reputation amongst ravers and DJs alike. With the city streets above and a roaring Funktion One in front, anything can happen… 

A very welcome addition to the Moda Black family comes in the shape of Italian track master Baunz. His crisp productions, dreamy melodies and refined musical skills allow him to create lush house music that feels classic, captivating and, quite often, hypnotic. 

Mia Dora's new EP on Moda Black is serious stuff, let it be said. Although a new name on the scene, their productions are refined, powerful and inventive... and when you've got the likes of Eats Everything, Russ Yallop, Heidi and Richy Ahmed all dropping it in various global rave dens, you know you're onto a good thing.

To celebrate their induction into the Moda Black family we asked them to take control of episode 17 of the Moda Mix Series - an insightful hour-long journey around their inner beings. You're gonna love it! 

Moda Black continues to bring forward amazing new talent, this time in the form of Scottish duo Mia Dora.

Comprising of a whiskey fuelled studio guru and renowned Glaswegian party starter, Mia Dora first grabbed our attention with their impressive remix of Roots Manuva's Get The Get, earlier this year. Not ones to miss a trick, we quickly tracked them down and started to plan something special.

Back around 2002 Leeds started to become a second home for many of the Moda crew - it's safe to say that parties like Dirty Disco and Asylum opened our eyes in more ways that one. But it was at the latter hang-out that we first discovered the sounds of Tom and Bonar, better known as PBR Streetgang

In a world where there is a plug-in to get you through every stage of the musical process, the task of creating a new style is one which comes with unfavourable odds. It's you Vs the world.

But creativity isn't a Ableton preset, it's a flash of inspiration. A moment of realisation, when your mind breaks the mould, goes against everything it's learnt and says 'this doesn't make sense, but I'm gonna do it anyway'.
