when i was first hired at universal music as their new a&r guy in 2001, i was rocking this moka only demo at the office on an almost daily basis. i really wanted to sign dude, but for whatever reason, the company wasn’t moving on it. (they sort of had him through some production deal with the band “len” or something, but nothing ever materialized out of that…) anyway, to me, he had a few qualities that i thought made perfect sense to an a&r guy: 1. he was charismatic. 2. he was melodic. and 3. he was prolific. i figured, with those three things together, it was only a matter of time before he would come up with some, uh, and i hate to use this word, “hits.” well, one “fuel injected” later and we all know that story. anyway, this demo is dope. i was kind of hesitating to put it up here, but then i realized, this blog is still brand new, and by the time word really spreads and more people are really checking it, the download link will be dead anyway. so, if you’re one of the early birds, this worm is for you. if you’re a latecomer, good luck, because i won’t post this again…

    really bummed i missed this. i’ve got it on wax but the pressing is terrible. can’t get away with bumping it anywhere other than a house party these days.

    “fuckn’ great” is one of my all time favorite’s

  8. Yeah, I don’t know what happened with that vinyl… I can guarantee that the master sounded dope as fuck but something bad happened along the way… “Everything’s Fucking Great” is exactly what it says, fucking great… Moves and Moka should have worked together a little more…
