Mold is a creative unit of two brothers, whose aim is to transmit their creative style from Tokyo and beyond.
John "Shigeo" Doe and his brother DJ Raymond started Mold as a ‘next door’ electrounit a year ago. Their tracks, influenced by the classical music they heard during their childhood, have both a functional and artistic feel that aims to present a unique interpretation of the world.
Mold’s musical world takes Groove Art Installation as its theme, bringing diverse textures into multiple layers and sculpting the whole effect to create an abstract output.
A new genre called wag has been created using styles that include minimalism, clicking, dubbing, break beats and new wave.
Mold’s home ground venue is IN:FLAME@AIR (Daikanyama, Tokyo) and they’ve also actively collaborated with top artists such as John Tejada, Fumiya Tanaka, DJ Wada, RADIQ a.k.a. Yoshiro Hanno.
In 2005, they released Paradise Lost through their own label, made numerous remixes and tracks, made guest appearances on DJ Sodeyama’s creations and released their 2nd album Ischia, named after one of Truman Capote’s short stories.
With a characterically ‘cut up’ approach, they’ve succeeded in both WAGHOUSE type floor tracks and a Gus Van Sant movie soundtrack style.
