There’s a new approach, a new aesthetic emerging” proclaimed Clash Magazine in a recent write-up for the last Bobby Tank cut; a sentiment we have fully signed up for at MofoHifi as we explore further into the unrestricted, explosive future-funk template being pioneered by the likes of Flume, 813, Rustie and of course the aforementioned Bobby Tank.

Tron Major’s debut release fits beautifully into the MofoHifi family, all glitches and complextro-squelches but deconstructed into a more progressive down-tempo journey where nothing stays the same for long and the journey just keeps running.
After nearly three years since his last release – years spent locked away painstakingly developing the exact sound he is looking for – the incredible Phonat returns this Summer with a new E.P. “Identity Theft”.
Phonat has crafted an exceptionally intimate and personal journey, exploring themes of the soul within the machine, the passage of time and the passions and challenges of the creator.
MofoHifi’s other electronic savant, Bobby Tank, premiered the first sneak peak at the forthcoming Phonat EP this week on BBC Radio One – the delicate but uplifting NuGarage influenced “Ride The Prejudice”, which he chose as his track to play on Phil Taggart and Alice Levine’s “Show and Tell” feature.
The new EP will be released by MofoHifi in association with OWSLA with a release date of June 4th.more]
Bobby Tank’s sublime “The Way” is out now with massive support from the Radio One team.
Italian Turbofunkers Fire Flowerz team up with NAPT to bring their own unique mix of french touch and heavy-weight house to MofoHifi. NAPT, with huge releases on both Fool’s Gold (Tom Toms EP) and Vicious Bitch (Gonna be Mine) and a string of remixes to their name this year (including Far Too Loud, Surrender!, Elektropusher and Udachi) continue to tear-up dance floors with their uncompromisingly catchy bangers. Fire Flowerz, meanwhile have drummed up DJ support from Herve, Reset, Louis La Roche, Russ Chimes, Plump DJs and more. ‘Connect’ marks their debut on MofoHifi, with Fire Flowerz releasing a record with Birdee on Mofo’s sister label Heavy Disco next month. MofoHifi is the eclectic, well respected East-London based record label founded by The Young Punx, with Phonat, Bobby Tank and many more on their roster.[more]
To quote The Fader: “The maximalist UK producer Bobby Tank’s lavish funk anthem “Afterburn” now has a frantic, technicolor video befitting the single’s size. Picture three minutes of hitting the turbo-boost on Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road, except everyone’s topless. The glitchy transition between shots is immaculate.” (Buy on iTunes)more]

MofoHifi Records are delighted to announce that infamous Italian party collective Reset! Have joined the MofoHifi family for the release of their latest tracks ‘Wind Up’ and ‘Escape’.
Reset! – A 5-man collective of DJs, producers and party promoters based in Milan – are renowned both for their spectacular and sweaty club nights and for pioneering the ‘Turbofunk’ genre – a bass-heavy fusion of disco and electro which has seen massive support from the likes of Justice, Hervé, Annie Mac, A Trak, Crookers and Cassius.
MofoHifi Records presents ‘Loud’, an EP from new Spanish electronic producer, Alizzz, which follows his teaser first release, “Neon Lights” earlier this year.
In common with his label-mates, Bobby Tank and Phonat, Alizzz revels in the luxurious melodic synth aesthetic of the 80s, super-tight post-dubstep beats and deconstructed vocal glitches. Favouring a lush, soulful route and bathing the listener in chordal bliss and RnB vibes, if ‘Brostep’ is the disease, Alizzz is the cure – furnishing the 140bpm world with tracks that eschew ear-grating Massive drops in favour of harmony, key changes, solos and slick 80s soul. The pulse of dubstep remains, but refocused as a platform for synth-beauty and boogie.[more]
