“I think that the 2000s for my generation are kind of like the 80s for my parents. That sense of a golden era. A nostalgia about this time.”
Mochakk is one of the most exciting new artists that house music has seen in years. His unique sound – drawing from a broad range of influences, including the funk and soul of his home country Brazil – and his irresistible charisma behind the decks have turned him into a viral sensation, with plenty of musical substance to back the hype. For this Electronic Beats Conversation, Mochakk sat down with Electronic Beats editor Marcus Boxler to talk about his background in hip-hop and skateboarding culture, his interest in fashion, his Brazilian heritage, and the creative relationship between TikTok and his music making. During their in-depth conversation, they also touch on new models of masculinity and Mochakk’s love for typography, Comic Sans MS in particular.
