On the decks with Dj Mosh

Mohalenyane Phakela

MASERU — Whenever he is behind the decks, revellers find it hard to leave the dance floor and cannot get enough of his excellent tunes.

This is Moshoeshoe Mohale better known  by his fans as DJ Mosh; and one of the country’s great talents in the music circles.

Born and bred in Moshoeshoe II, Mohale says he learnt about music composition from spending most of his teenage years alongside his uncle Livo, and the late Frank Leepa who were the greatest composers of Jazz music of that time.

“The time I spent with my uncle influenced the career path that I am pursuing because the only language he talked was music.

“He taught me how to compose music,” Mosh told XpressPeople this week.

He says in 2003 he decided to broaden his music territory hence he went the radio route working for the now defunct Joy FM before moving to a Catholic mission station CR FM.

While working on radio, DJ Mosh learnt the noble art of music production from his friend and accomplice DJ Thabbie, who helped him produce his first single Dreams.

The response he got from the public about the single inspired him to quit radio three years later and try his hand in the production and disc spinning arena fulltime.

“In 2009 I got tired of working on radio and decided to pursue disc spinning,” he says.

DJ Mosh has since played at a number of elite clubs including Coconut and Lakeside Hotel serving different age-groups.

He says he is able to give his audiences just the right type of music because he considers a lot of issues about his audience such as background.

DJ Mosh says he is taking his career to even greener heights as he is currently working on two albums: a house compilation titled My Deep Scars and as well as a Jazz offering.

Both albums are set for release next year.
