Powder is an alchemist of time. Her ceremonious DJ sets invite listeners and dancers to extend their imaginations to abstracted spaces, while allowing the body to vessel the voyage in free, flowing style. Playful, thoughtful, and natural without knowing, Powder's crates encourage abandonment of arbitrary boundaries and expectations surrounding genre, movement, schedule, and societal convention to revel, spirited and harmonious, in the passage of time. Momoko Goto relocated from her hometown of Nagasaki, Japan to Tokyo in 2011. This is where the story of Powder, as the international dance music community knows her, begins. Moko's musical mission to transcend weighty time-based associations, to shed light on the positive possibilities of passing time, resonates far past her island's shores. Experiencing the pleasure that comes from physical and emotional transformation. Creating and nurturing memories. In embracing these positive properties of time, Powder uses the hypnotic language of patterns to communicate with listener-dancers. Patterns represent the meter by which bodies are compelled to move; they also represent a method for collection and organization of sound, where the cohesive stylistic and historical narrative of different pieces of music are laid over one another transforming both intimate and universal moments into a dreamy, experiential, and endlessly interpretable whole. Since her debut release on Born Free Records, 2015's Spray (BORN 016EP), Powder's sound has flirted with numerous unconventional dance institutions and outlets, releasing on ESP Institute, Wichelroede, and the Cocktail D'amore imprint, as well as regularly contributing to the latter's illustrious mega parties. For her Powder In Space mix, Moko presents two new songs that were created within a new schedule, with summers spent touring Europe and North America, welcoming the unique experiences offered by each location. "New Tribe" toasts the global community Powder's connected during her travels. Marching-band snares, breathy ostinatos, motivating chords, springy auxiliary percussion and bouncy melodic details -- all Powder trademarks, coalescing into one of her most celebratory offerings yet. "Gift" is a subtler jam, shuffling and twinkling in perfect balance. Reminiscent of "Spray", it sustains a retro-futuristic groove that defies the house/techno categorical binary.
