Kidd Mojo makes his debut on Hyperjazz Records including on his Ep a great featuring by the Grammy nominated artist Georgia Anne Muldrow!
Over 2500 years ago in Athens, the Dionysia was a large festival in honor of the god Dionysus. It was the second-most important festivity in the city-state, and probably the best symbol of the cosmopolitism and modernity of the ancient Greek culture and society. It was an extraordinary event involving the whole population (even the inmates were temporary free) in order to integrate marginalised people and consolidate social cohesion. The Dionysia was also an essential part of the Dionysian Mysteries, an esoteric and mystic ritual – whose origins are lost in time – which used trance-inducing techniques (like dance and music) to remove inhibitions and social constraints, allowing the individual to return to a natural state.
Passionate about beatmaking, punk, and Greek mythology, using his Mpc2000 like a stargate, Kidd Mojo tries to lead the ‘Dionysia’’s listeners into a very personal noisy journey through vintage sampling techniques, hip-hop beats, futuristic synths melted with hints of Afrobeat and jazz. An imaginary world, shaped by a modern ritual that encompasses past, present, and future and helps people reach their inner self through sound.
