A trip into the scuzzy, zoned-out musical world of London producer and NTS resident MOBBS.
South London producer MOBBS has been one of NTS Radio’s most rewarding residents since his monthly show started in 2016. His mixes cover broad musical ground – one of his shows saw music from the Silent Hill soundtrack sharing airtime with Slipknot, Pop Smoke, Mötley Crüe and Avicii – and each show feels like its own intricately crafted mixtape.
MOBBS’ scuzzy, zoned-out solo material – spread across 2017’s OneLord and 2022’s Untitled, released in May through Felix Hall’s Chrome label – place him firmly in the lineage of UK producers Actress, Dean Blunt and Burial, drawing on influences such as DJ Screw, Southern rap, industrial music, drill and reggaeton to create his own compelling musical reality.
Outside of his solo work and NTS shows, MOBBS has begun to establish himself as a producer for other artists, collaborating closely with British-Czech artist POiSON ANNA, and a curator with his own label FOGG Entertainment. MOBBS’ multifaceted Fact Mix draws from each aspect of his craft, put together with the same care as his essential radio mixes but comprised of work by himself and tracks he’s worked on, upcoming material from FOGG and work from his peers.
