Our third and probably most exciting booking of the run, You Deserve To Dance are bringing moomin to the capital for his Edinburgh debut. Moomin has been a genuine favourite of ours for a number of years. His releases on SMALLVILLE RECORDS and his 2016 album 'A Minor Thought' are living proof that Sebastian Genz was put on this planet to produce music, backing that up with his DJ ability and choice of records. German engineering at its finest.

''Sebastian Genz (aka Moomin) defined his musical career by crafting subtle, yet effective, deep house. In the early '90s, Genz was dedicated to collecting hip-hop records. By 1995, and with a growing collection, he started to DJ in his hometown of Kiel, Germany. Around the same time, he began experimenting with music production, using a simple DOS program known as Fastracker. He gradually incorporated more hardware into his methods, including an MPC to sample the old jazz, funk, and hip-hop records he had acquired. Eventually, Genz became disenfranchised by the German hip-hop scene, transitioning to house music instead.

The change in genre called for a change of location, so he migrated to Germany's creative capital, Berlin. Over a decade later, in 2010, Genz released his debut EP via AIM; he wasn't as concerned about the long wait for his debut as he was about creating it. The EP received positive reviews, causing German label Smallville Records — with a roster including Move D, Christopher Rau, and label founders Smallpeople — to reach out to Genz. They urged him to release a full-length album, resulting in 2011's The Story About You.

Genz's production style fit perfectly with the Smallville ethos of understated and thoughtful house, creating a close relationship with the label in the years that followed. After the success of his debut full-length and a string of EPs, Smallville encouraged him to release another Moomin album, resulting in 2016's A Minor Thought.''

We can't wait for this one and he will be supported by our main man Telfort, messer Gav Miller, residents Paddy Dixon and Grant Clark.
