One of the most prolific Silent Records artists, he is arguably best known for his many releases for FAX Records, however, his releases with Jonas Grossmann under the name Deep Space Network and his material released on his very own Source Records make a valid argument. He has recorded with Pete Namlook, Jonah Sharp, Dr. Atmo, Thomas Meniecke, Bobbi Bird of Higher Intelligence Agency and more! Born and raised in Heidelberg, Germany, and influenced by Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk and "2001: A Space Odyssey" it is easy to see why David Moufang became the influential artist he is today. Before recording his special brand of ambient techno, David spent time playing drums and guitar as well as spinning electro, funk and jazz as a DJ in Germany.
When he walked into the Milk Club (a dance club in Mannheim) during a Techno night, Moufang first heard Detroit techno, and he immediately became a committed clubber and soon after changed his nickname to Move D. Shortly after, Moufang released his first records with Jonah Grossmann under the name Deep Space Network. Interestingly, and not known to many, Earth to Infinity (Source/Silent) is actually the first Deep Space Network album. Unable to fit into any one particular genre of electronic music, David Moufang brings in elements of Detroit techno, electronic jazz and laid-back ambient grooves.
He maintains a top position as a member of the experimental German techno scene. Regarding Move D - "This is the soundtrack for sci-fi films of your dreams, the sound of Derrick May making music at zero gravity or Mr. Fingers recording on a water bed full of strawberries." "...creates the perfect techno testament!...far too sexy to be classified at all. Read more on Last.fm.
