Moullinex

Bio


If there is an underlying trait in all good music, it must be its ability to crush boundaries between genres, dancefloors and couches, twelve inches and YouTube clips. Enter Moullinex, Lisbon and Munich-based Luis Clara Gomes. Originally from a small countryside town in Portugal, he was surrounded by music and musicians during childhood and since an early age has been solely dedicated to the pursuit of eclecticism throughout his work, refusing to adhere to a specific genre or scene and forever be tagged with a dated aesthetic. That being said, if there is a common quality between his productions, it must be the careful craft of melodies, strong degree of human touch in machine-based music, melodramatic catharsis of unpretentious keyboards, desperate guitars, striking basslines, and beats reminiscing from a not so distant dancefloor past. Luis often collaborates with friends - in fact, most of the electric bass you’ll hear in his productions is responsability of renaissance man Luis Calçada (yes, another Luis), and the guitars are crafted by Bruno Cardoso, a man also known as Xinobi.While Luis has seen his work has received the acclaim of his peers, press and fans worldwide, he managed to find time to co-found the Discotexas imprint, together with Xinobi and Rockets, now responsible a flawless release catalog, along with a residency in one of the most sought-after clubs in Europe - Lux, Lisbon.If you think this is too much, wait: there’s more: the music videos for Moullinex are responsability of Luis Clara Gomes and Luis Calçada. They have been praised everywhere, for use of ground-breaking technology and creativity.
