DJ Mag finds out a little more about 'Moda Black'

Who's behind it?
Good pals Jaymo and Andy George met in 2008, quickly establishing some riotous party nights and setting up their own label, before moving on to guest on various shows on BBC Radio 1.

Moda Black was nominated for Best Label in our 2013 Best of British awards, having become one of the most respected and forward-looking independent labels in the scene.

Sounds like?
Quality 4/4, in the main. “Fresh electronic music focusing on alternative ideas, forward-thinking producers and high production quality,” say the label's head honchos. “House with sidesteps into techno and disco.”

Who's currently on it?
Hot Since 82, Groove Armada, Sidney Charles, Jaymo & Andy George, Alexis Raphael, Ejeca, Hauswerks, Mia Dora.

Who's playing it?
Darius Syrossian, Richy Ahmed, Sasha, Dubfire, Joris Voorn, Pete Tong, Catz 'N Dogz, Huxley and more.

What's next?
The annual Moda Black album drops this month, mixed by label bosses Jaymo & Andy George and comprising entirely of 100% exclusive new music from the label's artists and extended family including Darius Syrossian, Sidney Charles, Hector Couto, DJ W!LD, Ejeca and loads more.

The second 'Little Black Book' album (the first was curated by Hot Since 82) will hit stores early Autumn.
