Biography

  • Mugwump is building a legacy of music fusing 80's pop, EBM, indie, dub, film scores, kraut, industrial, post-punk & new-beat influences with house, disco & techno.
    Since its launch in 2014 thanks to a cemented collaboration with !K7, Mugwump’s Subfield label steadily releases music from him and like-minded artists (Front De Cadeaux, VoiceKoder, Jimi After, DC Salas,...) that fuses house, techno, disco and electro with a definitive open-minded attitude. The Mugwump debut-album, « Unspell » in 2015 gained plaudits all across the board and led to fo a series of European live shows at major Benelux festivals & venues within a 4-piece band that kept on shining off on the Metempsycho EP. The following Drape LP with the band gathered post-punk, indie pop, psych & noise influences over his own, conscious, parlando-style lyrics. Geoffroy Mugwump is primilarly a (highly-respected) DJ tough, with a 20 years experience and an history in assembling spot-on mixes and compilations predominantly for the iconic Crammed Discs label... He came to the fore as an exponent of the Belgian thriving electronic scene in the early 90s (trough the pioneering Belgian house institution, the Food Club) after an early stint as KM5 resident in Ibiza. He has played worldwide ever since, with solid ties in the UK, being the only Belgian dj to ever guest at one of many nights curared by the late Andrew Weatherall (having also swapped remixes) and having been represented by UK dance icon, Jon Dasilva (Hacienda, Manchester). He has a long-standing recording relation with Cologne's Kompakt records and released music on an impressive label list including R&S, Gigolo, Misericord, Cocoon, Throne of Blood, Endless Flight, Eskimo, Astrolab, Permanent Vacation, International Feel. His talents have been consistently sought after yet rarely pinned down. He runs the Leftorium clubnight in Brussels (past dj guests include Ivan Smagghe, Andrew Weatherall, Superpitcher, Matias Aguayo, Optimo’s JG Wilkes, Prins Thomas, Sascha Funke, Gerd Janson, Ata or Roman Flügel,...). Latest Mugwump remixes include Tuff City Kids, La Belle, Ceeys, La Jungle, a "Moving House" compilation (his cult 90's CD series on Crammed Discs revamped on Subfield/!K7) and new EP's from Belgian producers and a new electronic solo LP by Mugwump are now scheduled on Subfield.
