In the second edition of our 2017 LSTD review, Issy Villiers encounters the artist Move D.
Move D, Brouhaha Stage, 19:00-21:00
David Moufang, more widely known as Move D, has been at the centre of djing since the electronic side of the art form rose to popularity in the 1990s.
In 1995 he released his debut album ‘Kunststoff’, which still to this day is one of the most renowned techno albums ever made.
Through his step father’s record collection, he discovered a variety of music at an early age.
A spirit of eclecticism has him listening to all sorts in his spare time from jazz to classical music to indie rock and back.
This comprehensive knowledge and fondness for many genres lends itself well to Move D, making his work interesting and diverse.
Still, the artist has always remains faithful to techno, this key genre providing the bedrock for the majority of his sets.
“The music that really moves me happens when I just forget about everything, follow the stream of things and go wherever it takes me.” David Moufang
Bringing this philosophy to his performance at LSTD I was taken on an wide ranging, foot stomping journey.
His all-inclusive and unique oeuvre of tracks, created an atmosphere of anticipation, where I knew not quite what I was going to hear next.
Unfortunately I, preferring smaller festival performances, felt his set on Saturday lacked some of the engagement with the crowd. I had previously witnessed much more from him last year at Gottwood festival.
A mixed verdict for Moufang, the jury is still out on his performance at this year’s festival. However, next in Part 3 of our review our trio of writers whip up some coverage for Hunee’s Saturday finale.
