The Vinyl Factory favourite 12″s and EPs of 2019
Powder In Space comes in at number 5 on The Vinyl Factory's list of favorite's:
"Japanese producer and DJ Powder, aka Momoko “Moko” Goto, helmed the first instalment of a new mix series from Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space. (Powder In Space’s 18-tracks include two gloriously trippy, fresh tunes by Moko – ‘New Tribe’ and ‘Gift’ – alongside 16 other artists such as Lord of The Isles, Daphne and Cos/Mes (aka 5ive).) To celebrate its arrival, a fluo-technicolour Tokyo anime promo accompanied first single ‘New Tribe’, with scenes including cartoon Moko DJing with fish. (A first.) Alongside the full mix release, the Powder in Space four track vinyl sampler contained the aforementioned ‘New Tribe’, plus the calypso house tinkler ‘Gift’. Meanwhile, on the flip came two jams from Daphne and Samo DJ & Hidden Operator. In sum, Powder in Space was an audio-visual highlight of the year that marked yet another stellar outing from Moko, after the launch of her own label Thinner Groove – whose incantatory first EP, 5ive’s Planet Be, was one of our favourite records of 2018."
