Mo’ Horizons

Mo’ Horizons

Bio

Hannover, the capital of Lower Saxony, sometimes known as ‘Bosshanover’, although this tropical moniker may appear deceptive as blue seas and palm trees are pretty rare around these parts! Nevertheless, it can be argued that this is the place where the primordial mixture of ‘Nu- Bossa’ and funky breaks first sprang to life in the mid 1990s.  By the end of that decade, music maniacs Ralf Droesemeyer and Mark ‘Foh’ Wetzler were so uninspired by the 4/4 tedium of the local club scene, that they took the initiative to re-examine their love for bossa, jazz, soul and boogaloo within the dance music genre, and from this Mo’ Horizons were born.  The duo released their debut LP, ‘Come, Touch The Sun’ in 1999, and gained an army of fans, thirsty for their refreshingly eclectic approach. Tracks like ‘Foto Viva’ became instant classics; tunes that transport the listener from the humdrum of the 9 to 5 to the beaches of Rio, and beyond!  The Mo’ Horizons crew have since gained a truly international reputation. Whether it’s on tour as DJ-team, or with a soundsystem, they have left listeners and audiences across the globe touched by the ‘Bosshanover’ sun. Over the last ten years musical styles have come and gone, but after four studio albums, and several underground hits, Mo’ Horizons still sound as fresh and life affirming as they did a decade ago. The boys certainly haven’t forgotten to ‘Remember Tomorrow’!!  … and of course, they are still touring as a dj – team and with their soundsystem featuring a various couple of guest musicans, to where the sun is calling them.
