Moul'y & Lucida

Profile:
Alex Moul, Graham Fisken

Graham owned a little bedroom studio and had already a release under his belt on the seminal breakbeat/hardcore Production House label.
A casual meeting at the record store and a discussion over that very record would initiate a friendship and a great collaboration between them
both hailing from the town of Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK, the duo emerged in 1995, teaming up to form Moul'y & Lucida up until around 1997.

Life circumstances such as Alex’s relocation to the United States made it impossible for the duo to carry on, so the Mouly & Lucida cycle reached a natural conclusion circa 1997. After a short hiatus, Mouly resurfaced with two solo outputs, which were released in 2002 and 2003 respectively.

Excerpts of Alex’s and Graham’s comments on how they had envisaged their musical career and a brief account of their achievements:

“ … Our standard routine after finishing a tune, which would take us on average 8 mid-week sessions, was to record it on tape and drive around playing it on the car stereo in order to hear how it would sound like …”

“… I was sitting with my girlfriend on a Wednesday night with a bag of fish and chips, listening to Fabio playing on Radio 1, when “Spirits” kicked in. …Hang on, I recognize this tune and I remember calling up Graham… “

“ … To have people interested in some little tunes we hacked out of my old bedroom is pretty amazing. I certainly hadn’t imagined that our influence was so far-reaching. I suppose we probably expected to become rich and famous, because we were young and naïve, but it obviously didn’t happen. The biggest thing Alex and I probably got out of it was the buzz of hearing our tunes played out to an audience and watching people freak out to them, or hearing them played on the radio. At times, it really did feel like we were superstars in our own little way, when we got to rub shoulders with the likes of Goldie, Bjork, Tricky and Lady Miss Kier of Deee-Lite in the “Speed” night at the “Mars” Bar.

“… That was the vibe for us; we were just kids looking to make something and the fact that top djs were starting to play our stuff was the biggest thing about it …”

Whilst low on overall volume, Mouly and Lucida were never short of quality. All their tracks were beautifully deep and go nicely with the Good Looking/Deejay/Lucky Spin tunes of the time.
