Mogwaa returns to Peggy Gou's Gudu label with Drifted, his second EP for the imprint and a perfect summary of what makes him one of Korea's most exciting contemporary artists - complete with a remix by Klasse Werks founder Mr. Ho.A staple of Seoul's electronic scene, Mogwaa's catalogue takes in everything from ambient to jungle - but at the centre of his music, there's always a distinct sense of melody and pure compositional chops that defines his music regardless of style or tempo. Put simply, you know a Mogwaa track when you hear one.Quicker in tempo than his last EP for Gudu, Drifted opens with 'Driven' - a combo of chopped-up breaks and a relentless riff that does just what the title implies - before Mogwaa really flexes those melodic chops on 'Chances for Bounces', getting heady with synthesized voices and an almost Detroit-leaning bassline over an 808 groove. 'Rushing' takes things further into peak time with an acid bassline and some nifty automation to keep things ascending, before Mr. Ho's remix of 'Driven' closes the EP on a dreamy techno tip. Following several European runs last year that saw Mogwaa perform at Warehouse Project, Pleasure Gardens and more, plus a Boiler Room in Seoul alongside Anz, Sharda, Finn, Closet Yi and Seesea, Drifted is another snapshot into the sound world of this remarkable talent. Tracklisting:A1. Driven A2. Chances For Bounces B1. Rushing B2. Driven (Mr. Ho Remix)
