Despite her music being framed by 90s inspired house beats, 22 year old South Londoner, Moko, retains a glowing soulful spirituality in her vocal delivery. It all comes from an understanding of pitch that dates back to her younger years. MTA Records has proven to be a perfect development ground for Moko's artistry, and her debut ‘Black EP’ was testament, announcing itself with a sold out show at London's Birthdays venue. "I chose MTA to be under Will and Saul (Chase & Status), because they have experience of being artists themselves," explains Moko. "You know when people say 'iron sharpens iron'? They have a real way of helping me to see and understand my art before giving it to the world. I have a lot of freedom creatively to just put out stuff that is real to me, and what I feel will touch people."
Those who have seen Moko live know her ability to detonate small venues comes just as much from her intense stage presence as her voice, choreographing every gig with intense energy and rhythmic dancing. These performances are honed from early snap opportunities on bigger stages. At Reading Festival, she fearlessly took the stage with Chase & Status to make 80,000 people bounce in unison, and followed that with her first major TV appearance on Jools Holland.
