Ever since then, the Nigerian-born Lebanese star has dedicated her immense energy to finding ways to share that vibe. After years as a promoter – first in Lebanon, then in London – and a long self-apprenticeship in her studio, Nicole burst onto the scene like record-wielding Athena. Carl Cox, a close friend and mentor, tipped off DJ Mag in 2009, calling her “the most underrated DJ.” Four years later, Ms. Moudaber is no longer waiting in the wings.
With her trademark shock of untamed dark hair, the Nigeria-born artist can be spotted in a DJ booth by profile alone, rocking crowds before she even drops a record. In-demand all over the world, Moudaber has played everything from intimate after-hours clubs; to revered nightclub institutions like Space, DC10, Output and Stereo; to massive festival stages, including Glastonbury, Electric Daisy Carnival, and two appearances at Coachella. She’s been featured by the New York Times and CNN, named “one to watch” by Billboard and Paper magazine, and has graced the cover of electronic music magazines in several countries.
Dance music changed Nicole Moudaber’s life – now she’s returning the favor. “The drums reached me,” she says of her initiation at New York’s infamous Tunnel Club.
Moudaber often brings different elements of her style and taste to life under the MOOD banner, showing her roots as a party promoter, and a New York City clubber during the golden age of the resident DJ. In 2014, she headlined the sold-out MoodRAW tour, set in in off-the-grid warehouse venues from Los Angeles to London. During Miami Music Week, the annual industry confab in South Beach, she hosts MoodDAY and MoodNIGHT showcases, capturing both the pool and after-hours party vibes with packed lineups of superstar friends (like Carl Cox and Danny Tenaglia). She curated a Mood stage at the 2015 Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas; and is a fixture of the annual BPM Festival in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and played the 10-day event’s official closing party in 2016.
