Moodymann (or KDJ to his mates) is the best DJ in the history of the universe. That’s a fact. I know because of science. Why is he the best DJ in the history of the universe? Well, I can tell you but I’d have to kill you. Actually not really, he’s the best because he makes you want to dance. So many DJ’s these days are so busy playing the very latest tunes and looking like they’re about to ask you if you need any help at Urban Outfitters that they have forgotten the vital ingredient of a good set: fun.
Moodymann always provides this in droves, mixing house and techno but also classic funk, hip hop and disco to perfection, not giving a fuck if he’s playing the latest bass heavy drops but giving a fuck that the crowd is smiling.
Here; in celebration of his upcoming show for Hydra, I have picked a few of the tunes that KDJ has played in sets that I’ve seen over the years that have instantly made me drop what I was doing a run up to the booth so I can ask ‘what the fuck was that?’ like my life depended on it.
You can find Moodymann getting everyone excited at The Hydra: Electric Minds x Kompakt on Saturday 8th November.

This reminds me of Moodymanns set at Worldwide in 2012. He dropped this banger whilst playing the Ampitheatre stage and had J Dillas mum there. Fact.
