Not many producers get handpicked by deadmau5 to conjure full length artist album for his prestigious mau5trap imprint; so for German specialist Moguai to get the nod twice in as many years is one hefty testament to the sheer quality, imagination and originality of his musical output. Now, and less than two years since the critically lauded release of his first ever Mau5trap album We Are Lyve back in April 2010, Moguai returns to the fray, and on the form of his life, for the agonizingly-awaited worldwide release of his latest long-player project Mpire. Diligently incorporating elements of house, techno and electro, this work two careful years in the making has Moguai s signature sound stamped all over it. Whether it s the luxuriously complex, driving harmonies of Dynamo and Heimaterde, the progressive artistry of Lyme and Tommy Trash collaboration In N Out, or the relentlessly pounding tech-bedlam that is N.E.O, this stunning album delivers more than it s fair share of peak-timers to satisfy the cravings of dancefloor junkies worldwide. But it s the spellbinding euphoria of tracks such as Invisible, Styrumand Out of Nowhere that elevate this album to that next level of innovative flair one that so many artists struggle to achieve. Gentle, hypnotizing and evoking emotions of tranquillity throughout with their mesmerising synth progressions, these welcome moments of calm within an otherwise club-focused collection captivate the soul and carry the listener on a delicate journey through the ethereal. Just one listen and we begin to understand why the Mau5 himself insisted so strongly upon another Moguai LP instalment.
