Mookhi

Let yourself explore what has been fluttering around everyone's ears. Mookhi's beautifully sophisticated and diverse self produced work simply draws you in and we can't wait to let it consume you all this week.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

Because I've always been set on composing scores for film, I feel my music has leant towards a more cinematic vibe from the beginning. I've always been inspired by unexpected things, and I guess this openness has allowed me to take fragments of the outside world into my music.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

To keep it painfully short and simple: anything and everything. It's awesome to be inspired by current music but I don't chase a sound (or at least consciously try to). It's important to take inspiration from the past and present to propel your music into the future.

What can punters expect from a Mookhi live show?

At current lives shows you'll be watching this little chick looking stern, pressing a whole bunch of buttons and keys like I'm operating an army of invisible robots. However, you'll also get a few trumpet, keys or vocal solos and maybe even a guest instrumentalist or two. Plus some visuals that I may have frantically animated the night before. In the future I'd want to put more emphasis on visuals and definitely get more artists, musicians and vocalists involved.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

'Don't let anyone dictate what your sound should be', and that was from my step Dad.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

Shannon Noll 'Lift' - lifts the spirits every time.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

Probably Shannon Noll 'Lift' again, but this time I'd be singing it.

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

Shannon Noll 'Lift'? Hahaha, probably Australian crawl 'The boys light up' for that nostalgic part of the evening.

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

It was my debut EP launch at Oxford Art Factory and it was probably the most fun I've had on stage ever. I had 3 guest artists who killed it, and the show sold out. Triple win.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you.

 I went to Liveschool to learn more about Ableton and that little community is really inspiring. You get introduced to other producers who are touching on new styles and genres; it's really fascinating and exciting. When it comes to locals acts, I'd have to say Willow Beats, Ta-ku and Charles Murdoch as they tend to work with more unusual and textual tapestries of sound, and Sampa The Great because she kicks ass.

What are your plans for 2017?

One things for certain is that I'll definitely be pissing off my household with my late night producing sessions. But I'm definitely itching to release more content, play more shows and collaborate with more artists (musically and visually)!

What’s the first thing you’re gonna do when you turn 18?
Most likely just go and see some bands - not being able to get into venues is definitely the worst part of being underage.
 
Who’s on your collaborator wish-list?
Hmm… I think Bon Iver would be pretty beautiful, his voice is so superb. Phoebe (ex-Snakadaktal) would be awesome too.
 
On average, how much time do you spend in your bedroom making tunes each week?
I’m not sure how many hours but definitely a lot! It’s a great way to procrastinate and avoid schoolwork…
 
What’s your go-to snack when making music?
Definitely this frozen yoghurt ice-cream thing that Mum has started buying. It doesn’t last very long when I’m recording ;)
 
What’s your vision for the ultimate Japanese Wallpaper live show?
I’d love to make it a band-driven show at some point - I love playing in bands and I think that with a little tweaking the music would really lend itself to it.
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
Hmm, 'Pickles From The Jar' by Courtney Barnett would be a pretty good one. Or maybe 'Void' by Seekae. Depends why they were crying in the first place I guess!
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
Sorry to use Seekae twice but their song 'You’ll' is a definite tearjerker. Works on me every time.
 
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
That Polographia and Cosmo’s Midnight collab always goes down well! Or maybe an Andras Fox track. Depends on the party.
 
What are your plans for the rest 2014?
I definitely want to do some more touring and keep developing my show, so hopefully there will be plenty of time for that in the school holidays…
