Moullinex and Xinobi hardly need any presentation. They are two of the hottest producers and DJs around and together they formed Discotexas. Munich-based Luis Clara Gomes aka Moullinex was surrounded by music and musicians during his childhood in Portugal and since an early age has been solely dedicated to the pursuit of eclecticism throughout his work, refusing to adhere to a specific genre or scene and forever be tagged with a dated aesthetic. That being said, if there is a common quality between his productions, it must be the careful craft of melodies, strong degree of human touch in machine-based music, melodramatic catharsis of unpretentious keyboards, desperate guitars, striking basslines, and beats reminiscing from a not so distant dancefloor past. Remix requests for artists such as Cut Copy, Sebastien Tellier, and labels such as Kitsuné, Modular, Gomma and Compost, have been pouring into his inbox ever since his first productions as Moullinex got out of the door. He’s stepped into house, nu-disco, and new wave, but declines to sit in any of these, both in his productions and DJ sets.

Xinobi is Bruno Cardoso, a major in fine arts and a musical explorer by excellence. He has his roots in punk, rock and skateboarding but he also really likes disco and to dance. Over the past few years the mastermind from Portugal has developed his very own versatile and honest sound. Together with his buddy Moullinex he founded the label and collective Discotexas, now with cult status and still ascending in popularity – being considered as one of the biggest influences in the emerging electronic scene.

In the meantime Xinobi established himself as a regular remixer of artists like Loose Shus (for whom he remixed “Threesome”, released by Plant Music), Nightriders, Gooseflesh, Moullinex, among others. In the near future, there will be the release of a track created in cooperation with Arthur Baker and Moulinex, and a remix of Giorgio Moroder, to be included in a compilation of remixes from the epic E=MC2. Xinobi has also been requested by several worldwide clubs, and together with Moullinex, they embody one of the biggest live acts / dj-sets you’ll ever see.
