ASA MOTO

Formed in 2012, Asa Moto purvey non-standard body music from their Ghent outpost, Studio Martino. Closely affiliated with famed Soulwax imprint, DEEWEE, the Belgian duo’s recorded offerings carefully juxtapose expert synth-work with aesthetic imperfection. Charming melodies and throbbing rhythms come courtesy of archaic tone generators and acoustic instrumentation alike, landing Asa Moto in a zone of confident sonic idiosyncrasy. Their studio prowess has hardly gone unnoticed and during their breakout year of 2018, Resident Advisor, Redbull and the BBC were quick to take note of the group’s steady ascent. Via their ever-changing live performances, Asa Moto have become regular fixtures on the European touring circuit, touching down for club nights and festival appearances across the continent. As astute selectors, they operate a bi-monthly radio show in Brussels, digging into their sprawling collection, ranging from obscure jazz records to contemporary electronic cuts. Asa Moto have re-adapted their unmistakable strain of body music into a live show, which premiered on the Mainstage of the Lokerse Feesten 2019 and at the 40th anniversary of Ancienne Belgique in Brussels. In 2020, they co-produced and mixed the Turkish band, Altin Gün album ‘Yol’ marking the first time that the band has collaborated with outsiders.

Asa Moto

Playtime EP

    The brothers Dewaele tempt Ghent outfit Asa Moto back to their irresistible Deewee imprint for a third EP,  this time delivering six radically different pieces of music, providing something for everyone. Dance floor : covered. Kitchen: covered. Hi Fi: check. Car: sorted. EarPod: done. Up to you to find out which one was made for which.
    The unhinged action opens with the wonky electronix and odd synth-funk of "Soon Please", a shoulder rolling hit of gurgling bass and garbled sequencing which sounds like a load of amphibians on amphetamines. "Kifesh" and "Playtime"  stomp and romp their way through New Beat idents, NDW vocals and electrodisco bass, coupling cosmic quirk with krautish sound design. Skipping to the B-side we get hit with the rolling bass meets City Pop melody of "Hynek Maneuvre" (as tasty an Asian fusion dish as you'll sample all year), the warping leadlines and bleeping rhythms of "Worrying", and classic synth pop of "Twenty Six". Slo-mo with energy!
