Nicole Moudaber feat Skin – Someone Like You – MOOD Records
My collaboration with Skin from the legendary British rock band Skunk Anansie was part of the Breed EP on my MOOD label. We shot the video in Berlin, the whole process was a discovery for me, because the fusion of rock and techno was completely unique.
Depeche Mode – Cover Me (Nicole Moudaber Remix)
I’m honored to remix one of my favorite bands. Dark techno at its finest. Close your eyes and fly, it’s a journey.
Jamie Jones and Nicole Moudaber – Pepper Cocktail – Hot Creations
This collab was a fruit of the Covid era, you have to spice up your life behind closed doors. The B side is called Bubble Ride, it’s a great tool for nightclubs.
Alcatraz – Give Me Luv (Nicole Moudaber Remix) – Yoshitoshi
An award-winning remix I made years ago, this classic will never die. Ranked number one on the dance charts of all genres for four consecutive months.
David Guetta and Morten featuring. Roland Clark. – Alive Again
I never thought that in a million years I would be playing a David Guetta record simply because I don’t play pop music. Roland Clark on vocals, recently I opened my sets with this, he co-produced with Morten, he’s great.

A hypnotic techno banger featuring Detroit artist Dan Diamond narrating, “Get back to the beats, get back to the kick, get back to the bass, and get back to the music,” said Nuff.
Moby – Mere Anarchy (Nicole Moudaber Remix) – MOOD
Deep, hypnotic and trippy. Working with Moby was unreal, look at the flip side called “Like A Motherless Child” from the Adoption EP on my label.
Nicole Mudaber and Skin – These walls are made of water – MOOD
One of my favorite tracks from the Breed EP featuring Skin from Skunk Anansie. Her voice is just divine, you want this one on the loop forever.
