About Momus
FYI, Momus or Momos was in Greek mythology the god of satire, mockery, censure, writers, poets; a spirit of evil-spirited blame and unfair criticism. He is depicted in classical art as lifting a mask from his face.

Momus is also and foremost a Parisian electronic music lover, who started in 2004 to actively collect house records and regularly DJ in Paris, forging himself a music style falling somewhere between house and techno.

Moving to New York in 2009, Momus pursued a sound engineer program to further develop his electronic music knowledge and skills. Part of the local underground scene, Momus continuously learns and improves his DJ sets and productions, leading him to play for all the main underground promoters in NYC: Blk Market, Sheik 'n' Beik, Resolute, CVZ Safe Harbor to name a few. Momus is now a resident at Disco Before Sunset and Le Baron Chinatown.

Influenced by both Detroit analog raw sounds and Parisian filtered and funky house, Momus bridges the two styles in his warm, groovy, and dynamic sets, with the simple aim to get the best moves out of his audience; no mental masturbation here.

With original productions just around the corner, you can expect to be hearing a lot more from Momus in the years to come...Stay tuned on gigwax !!
