Description"Rising" is the title track from Momu's third album, a bold breakbeat manifesto that hit the Beatport Top 100 within days of release. The original mix of "Rising" is mixture of raw and visceral elements with full-on lush and orchestral largesse. This second single release features two fresh new remixes, the first from production legend Lee Coombs, and the 2nd from the UK's ever-innovative Lifecycle. The package also includes an extended mix of the original.
"Rising" features Alysoun Quinby, who also appeared on Momu's breakout track The Dive.
Momu is J.D. Moyer (the MO) and Mark Musselman (the MU). Championed from the start by the world's top DJ's such as Nick Warren and Sasha, Momu immediately made a name for themselves with ground-breaking breakbeat singles that helped create the "progressive breaks" genre.
In 2006 Momu released their debut self-titled album to stunning critical acclaim. M8 Magazine said "you'll struggle to find anything as perfectly formed as this collection from breakbeat visionaries Momu." Spill Magazine opined "An absolutely cracking album from start to finish, there's not even a whiff of disappointment in this longplayer." 2008 brought the release of Momu's follow-up album "Momentum." Unfettered by anything except the breakbeat form itself, "Momentum" broke the "progressive breaks" mold, but Momu's signature sonic weirdness, insanely high production values, and larger than life hooks are still front and center.
Momu's newest album "Rising" (Looq Records) opened at #3 on Beatport's Chill-Out releases chart. Other recent projects include the mind-bending "Spiral Staircase" remix of Infusion's anthem "Gotta Leave Now" (Omnis).
