TMPL Sessions

About This Show

Show Info:

Head Honcho at @heavenxxxearth demos/bookings: ------------------------------------------- The DJ scene today is inundated with newcomers who are essentially consumers, with the goal of taking what they can from the scene - the fast money, fame, and the DJ title (except then remove the title 'DJ' because that's not cool). It's rare to find those who actually give back, and Moste, 28, is a young veteran who giveth plenty, not just through his music, but also formulating the country's best DJ courses, as well as his record label 'Temple of Sound'. At only 14 years old, Moste was holding his first residency. Yet that didn't seem to quench his thirst for playing music. "I was playing hip hop at first; it's what we were all listening to at the time," Moste says, painting a picture of the scene when he began in 2002. "I moved on to playing house later on, but that didn't last long since I was getting married and decided to take a break." He came back to music after five years of marriage, listening to tech house, deep house, and techno. When you hear Moste go through one of his courses, shifting through these genres and effects, you get a sense of just how technically advanced his skills are in comparison to many of these new-fangled heroes that grace Cairo's decks on a daily basis. "After I entered Student DJ, I noticed a gap in the market," he says. "With DJ sets constantly bombarding my social media news feed, I thought that a podcast catering to local listeners' needs in an organised format would work." Work it did – Temple Of Sound's online music series, TMPL Sessions, managed to reach more than 450,000 listeners worldwide on Soundcloud through 81 episodes, featuring some of the country's best local talents, alongside a couple of international underground acts - namely Sharam from Deep Dish, Ellie Peterson whose set was recorded live from Destino Ibiza, and Metodi Hristov. You would think he'd stop there, revelling in the glory of TMPL Sessions and having built a name for himself. Instead, the podcast spun off an event series and a DJ school. Werk It, Moste's attempt at educating Egyptians on the art of DJing is a full DJ course that's been around for more than three years now. ------------------------------------------- Appeared alongside Animal Trainer, Birds of Mind, Coyu, Dashdot, David Mayer, Kant, Kruse & Nurenberg, Monte, Raxon, Rob Made, Sebestien B, Sonic Future, Tiger Strips.Read more »
