Video of the Moment #1925: Gilligan Moss

By on Sunday, 27th September 2015 at 10:00 am

David introduced us all to Chicagoan electronic pop artist and producer Gilligan Moss in early August. I and probably many of you too first heard of his name through his remix of Glass Animals‘Gooey’ that was released spring 2014. In case you missed that, Glass Animals still has that archived on their SoundCloud and you can still listen to it here.

Moss has his own EP out now, ‘Ceremonial’, and the title track has its own promo video; watch it below. As dance music fans such as myself can attest to, sometimes you just can’t stop the beat inside you. You can get the ‘Ceremonial’ EP now from AMF Records.



Bands to Watch #352: Gilligan Moss

By on Thursday, 6th August 2015 at 12:00 pm

Chicago-born Gilligan Moss was dissatisfied with the routine of “adult life” (who can blame him?), and decided to devote his time to his hobby – music production. At first, Moss began sharing tracks with his close friends, although, in 2014, he quickly built up a cult following online. Since then, he has steadily produced a stream of acerbic electronic pop, making him an upcoming artist to keep a close eye on.

Despite the electronic pop label, it’s hard to pinpoint Gilligan Moss to one particular genre. The producer has the ability to combine infectious hooks across a palette of music styles, from dance and psych-rock to synth pop and an array of other genres. Bizarrely, this almost collage of multiple musical genres works in a weird and wonderful way, and it’s the producer’s unpredictability that makes him stand out amongst the overly-saturated market.


His first release ‘Hemlock’ is made up of layers upon layers of piano, synths and childlike vocals that are in an indecipherable foreign language. The track proved a huge hit among Moss’ cult following, although it was his follow-up single, ‘Choreograph’, which gave him widespread recognition. Like his previous release, the adrenaline-inducing track is a frantic amalgamation of sounds, harmonised with a marimba. Both ‘Hemlock’ and ‘Choreograph’ will feature on his four-track ‘Ceremonial EP’, which will be released later this month.

In addition to his own singles, Gilligan Moss has also remixed tracks for other artists, include his intoxicating remix of Glass Animals‘ ‘Gooey’, which has racked up almost half a million views on YouTube at the time of writing. This led to him being the support act on the indie rock band’s tour of America earlier this year. In more recent months, Moss provided a breezily infectious remix of Sia’s ‘Big Girls Cry’.

Looking ahead to the future, Gilligan Moss looks set to crack the UK, as he performs at the AMF Summer Party on the 14th of August to coincide with the launch of his ‘Ceremonial EP’ on AMF Records.
