MOOD II SWING
TOURING NATIONALLY JANUARY 2017
Illusive Presents are thrilled to bring US House duo Mood II Swing to Australia in January 2017 for a run of shows across Adelaide, Sydney, Wollongong, Perth and Melbourne, including taking in a headline slot on Sugar Mountain’s Boiler Room stage.
Mood II Swing are a production duo composed of songwriter-producer, Lem Springsteen, and composer-producer, John Ciafone. Both musically trained, John is inspired by classical music, rock, and hip-hop, while Lem is inspired by R&B. What unifies them is their love of international pop music which forged their worlds together in the early 90s.
Following their initial union, together the duo quickly began working on original material forging a strong following in the New York club, and later over the pond in the Garage club scene in the UK. Prominent hits of Mood II Swing’s enduring career include ‘Do It Your Way’, ‘All Night Long’, ‘Ohh’ and the timeless number ‘8 Ways To Knock Down A Wall’.
‘One of the most crucial artists of 90s NYC house’ – Thump
‘Mood II Swing are basically untouchable.’ – Fact Mag
‘If you’re into house, you probably know Mood II Swing’s music’ – Resident Advisor
Following a temporary hiatus to pursue separate ventures, the duo came back together earlier this year to release Strictly Mood II Swing through UK label Defected. The compilation showcases their music to a new generation of House music lovers through the release of their classic tracks and new productions.
In this post millennium, the resurgence of early 90s House music has seen two key players re-join to showcase their live DJ sets to the world. With some time passing between drinks for Mood II Swing and Australian fans, those eager to catch the duo in early 2017 should not hesitate in securing their tickets early.
