The Mole

Live & DJ

Biography

"The first record that ruined my head was Stevie Wonder's "Talking Book" - that says a lot about canadian-born Colin de la Plante, better known as The Mole. He loves to dive into the music, get lost in it, follow its flow. Be it as a DJ or a producer, solo or in his numerous collaborations, he is a true musician. He knows about harmony, change, melody and how to combine that, but respects music enough to not let knowledge stand in the way when the music itself takes over: "Sometimes I surprise myself, sometimes it trips me out where it takes me". 

The Mole is in love with a wide range of music and that shows. His sets are infused with influences that span many decades and the globe, all moulded into an exciting trip of music. His discography shows how often he has been involved in productions that for many form the essence of a genre. From the soulful edits of the highly sought after "7 inches of love", his Jazzy excursions to the trippy "Caregiver", he is a visionary artist. In his live sets or as a DJ, you will see how The Mole can set the crowd a flame with his passion for music, and his awareness of another key ingredient for a good party: "First, good people make a good night for me. Even when the soundsystem is shitty, with the right crowd you still have a great time. People inspire me, I guess that is why I also like collaborating". The Mole has proved countless times that this inspiration does not fail him and his connection with the crowd feels like a lovers embrace while sweating away on the dancefloor. 

Now, having co-started the Label "Maybe Tomorrow", the Imprint that will serve as a home for his future productions, and his second long player being released, The Mole will undoubtedly keep on influencing the scene like he has for many years now. Be it performing live or as a DJ, his instinct for a crowd and his feeling for all that is music make him one true performer. Simply: a great musician.
