Canada-born, Berlin-based Colin de la Plante aka The Mole remains low-key but loved by many. He thrives off of long, late DJ sets and does his best to keep record stores in business with what he earns. The Mole's passion for music speaks through his own -- a smoke-hazed world without constraint or care for genre but cemented in a foundation built in house music. You can hear him thanks to releases for Perlon, Ostgut Ton, Slices Of Life, Haunt, New Kanada, Internasjonal and his long-time home, Wagon Repair, who released his track that still receives plenty of plays, "Baby, Your the One." He's remixed many of the finest, including Michael Mayer, Imugem Orihasam, Pole and Gui Boratto, to name a few. He continues to record and on occasion perform live with his buddies Cobblestone Jazz that happens to feature Mathew Jonson. So late in 2012 with Kompakt's Jon Berry, they came up with Maybe Tomorrow. Inspired by a conversation about their favorite childhood (Canadian) hero "The Littlest Hobo" -- a TV show about a German Shepherd that had no home and roamed around Canada helping people out. Makes sense, right? And now The Mole is back -- it's been four years since we heard his Wagon Repair debut High as the Sky. The beat played on through his many 12" releases, but between then and now he's back with album #2. Caregiver was recorded in the now-defunct Berlin Wagon Repair studio A(rkona) -- a psychedelic caravan roaming a disco-laced cosmos that seeks to go beyond any specific niche or sound. In his own words. "Caregiver is supposed to be listenable all the way through. So hopefully that unifying thread has something pleasing within it."
