A performer and tastemaker to boot, his weekly radio show “MOGUAI pres. PUNX UP The Volume Radio” airs across 40 countries and a slew of radio stations.
His impressive catalog boasts celebrated albums like his mau5trap-released LP’s We Are Lyve and Mpire which gave rise to his smash hit “Mammoth” which was named Beatport’s Track of the Year and voted #2 among the most popular Tomorrowland Festival songs of all time. In 2020, MOGUAI’s track “DT64” with Kai Tracid went on the be the most played and sold techno cuts of the year.

Born and raised in a small town in the south of Germany, Luis and Sorin came together to form Dissolut through their love and passion for electronic music as both fans and creators.
Since 2019, the tandem has released music on labels like Sola, Realm, Get Twisted, District9, Armada Deep, Distortion, Stashed Music, and more. Their sound takes listeners on a dancefloor journey through progressive house, techno, and minimal movement grooves designed to pack dancefloors worldwide. After their long term residency for DEPT. – a party series based in Mannheim, Sorin and Luis came together with fellow German DJ and Producer Martin Occo to create their own party series and label, Noisy Neighbours, which is quickly becoming a renowned brand across Germany and the label worldwide.
MOGUAI and Dissolut’s forthcoming song is a bold example of artistic collaboration as both parties seamlessly distill soulful reggae lyrics into a dirty, deep-house breakdown. Teeming with MOGUAI’s breakbeat-inspired bassline and entrancing house beats and Dissolut’s intoxicating grooves, “Adventures of Babylon” is an innovative victory.
“I’m a big fan of mixing styles, but never did a track with a reggae twist. Hope you all dig it!” – MOGUAI
