He was also one part of Harlem dance duo MRC Riddims. Whether he is making noisy hip hop, dark house and techno, warping pop records or molding shoegaze textures with booty bass beats, Momin’s sound is anchored by an Indian ancestral drone that drives his search for what he calls the ‘The New Heavy’ – new ways of being immersed and submerged by sound. This journey has led him to his first solo project BKGD Audio. It began with remixes for Baltimore Club producer Schwarz, Italian Techno DJ Mr3P, Swedish Skweee legend Joxaren, as well as contributing music for forward thinking club label Sweat Equity’s Hot New Tracks Vol 1. Two years on and Momin has shaped these early sounds into BKGD Audio’s first album release called ‘Round One’.
A fusion of classic NY club music mixed with sounds and vibes drawn from various burgeoning new skool club styles, and haunted by sonic ghosts from his spaced out dälek past, ‘Round One’ is Momin’s latest incarnation of 'The New Heavy’, designed to groove and immerse. You can stream the mammoth fourteen track release above, an indelible, genre flaunting musical experience that will take your sense to the very edge of reality, before flooding them with intensified grooves and vibrant sparks of sonic wonder. ‘Round One’ is available now on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Music, and other online shops.
