Moh Flow has become a known name over here at Tune Collective after we heard his electric single ‘Golden Boy’, we just couldn’t get enough. This time we’re lucky enough to steal a little bit of his time for an interview, which talks about his time working with the likes of Pusha T, his musical influences, his family, and more.Check out the whole interview below, oh and I highly suggest listening to his latest ‘Purple Flowers’ track below as you read.First off tell us a little bit about yourself.
Now that we know you a little bit, tell us about how working with your brother has influenced you over time and how your family has played a role in where you are today.
- Born in Syria, raised in Saudi Arabia, and based in Dubai, I am a singer and rapper. I am an avid ’90s R&B listener. My biggest inspirations are melodic and carefully crafted pieces of music that are very true to self. I am supported by my elder brother and producer/engineer Ayham (aka AY), I started rapping in 2005 and within eight years had released my first three mixtapes — Nothing Personal, Peace Love & Music, and Born Ready — in addition to work with the group Run Junction in Saudi Arabia. After the more widely distributed This Is Yo(u), issued in 2016, I was matched with Pusha T for an installment of “I’m with the Banned,” a series of tracks featuring collaborations between artists from the U.S. and rising artists from territories impacted by travel restrictions. The result, “Options,” was released in 2017. A wide range of singles followed including Purple Flowers, a collaboration record with Kende.
How did you get into Hip-Hop specifically, and did any other genres influence you growing up?
- Collaborating with my brother is process that has been developed over many years of building trust, and a life long bond between each other as a base of our relationship. Everything else is simply the back and forth of 2 different people creating together. We compose and write together on a lot of the records I put out. Over time my family kept me grounded and made that I remained true to myself and my beginnings. They have also been a vital support throughout my various moves that required their blessing and moral presence.
What does your writing process look like when creating a song? Is there anything you go to to help get the creative juices flowing?
- Growing up I was influenced by rock, house, and pop music throughout my journey of discovering what music had to offer on the other side of the world. I experienced phases where I would dive deep into a certain genre or sub genre and without being conscious of it take a lot of techniques and songwriting tips. I ended up landing on hiphop as a result of all the influences around me in high school. I was surrounded by impeccable writers and developing artists. After graduation AY and I reinvented my sound and developed a more relatable premise to who I really am. I kept it Hiphop when it wasn’t cool where I was from, and now it finally is the wave and we are creating the movement seamlessly because the content represents what the people went through on this side.
How was getting to work with artists such as Pusha T for the “Im with the Banned” series and what are your hopes for this series?
- I go to my favorite artist for inspiration and in 2014 I started collecting vinyl’s and buying vintage used unknown Records that showcased the drastic difference from the songwriting perspective compared to what I’m trying to do. Going to these pieces of music gave me A wider range of skill set to apply to my approach every single time. The way I write records is not consistent and is different with every record. I feed off of the music and I’m not the type of artist that’s scripts an entire record without a musical piece as the foundation. I usually take my time and craft line by line to avoid a waste bar or a filler line. occasionally I would pen most of the record And make slight changes as we get closer to finalizing the production side of the record. I produce as I write to make place and arrange my thoughts properly without the restriction of a set sequence of transitions. I like total privacy during my writing and recording process.
Lastly, where do you ideally see yourself in 10 years, and if you were to win the lottery today what would be the first thing you’d buy?
- What I personally took away from this collaboration strengthened my belief in my craft. Being in a room with award-winning song-writers and producers as well as an A-list artist like Pusha T Assured me that given the right resources and doing enough work can get me to where I aspire to be as an artist. I am blessed to have gotten in the studio with Pusha T and by doing that sending a message to my fellow Arab artists that success in music is attainable and not as far-fetched as we think. My hopes would be that campaigns like this shed light on the phenomenal art that is being developed in this part of the world. It’s a wake up call for A&R’s everywhere that producers, song-writers and artists are cultivating a newly founded culture that will be responsible for worldwide and internationally acclaimed art.
A man dedicated to his passion, his family, and his message…what more could you want? Thanks Moh Flow for the time and we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next.
- I have variations of where I would like to see myself in 10 years. I could best explain it by stressing the importance of consistency and efficiency. Wherever I may end up I will be striving for greatness. My Ideal situation would be to harness and improve my songwriting to potentially write a record that lasts longer than all the music that comes and goes these days.
- If I win the lottery today I would buy my Mom and Dad some real estate in several countries and set up a fund for them that lasts as long as they need and a decade longer. Whatever is left off will go to AY and I to help us discover our true passion and what truly makes us happy in this lifetime. Oh, and I would build a Mosque.
A new name to us but not one to be overlooked is the exciting LA-native producer Hoobs. After seeing success with his debut EP which was featured on London superstars Pink Panda’s radio show “Pandamonium”, has hit the scene hard in the past month with 3 releases – 2 originals and a remix of Sia’s ‘Chandelier‘.
But what we are here to talk about today is his most recent third release,”Numerology”, which comes as an original that combines native Turkish instruments with a groovy trap flow. What I love most about this track is that it takes you on a journey through synths and sounds that remain minimal throughout the whole track, so that every sound gets to play its part and never gets over powered. And then a little over half way through he changes it up just slightly for a sweet little surprise.
Check out Hoob’s ‘Numerology’ below and enjoy!

You may be asking…where is a 5 piece band that blends soulful vocals, violin, saxophone, analogue synthesizers, and organic electronic beats to create futuristic pop-music, and who also got inspiration for their name from Pokémon? Well, I am here to tell you that Moglebaum is that band you have been looking for.
It all began when the German 23-year-old student of music, and producer of Moglebaum, Simon Ebener-Holscher (solo aka “Moglii”), started writing compositions mixed with acoustic instruments, which lead to the gathering of other musicians. Moglebaum is found to be driving, melancholic, and surprising, as they make most of their samples themselves whether it be recording coffee machines, shopping bags or dare I say it cactuses. With such unique style their last release of “Raindrops” received over 1 million streams, and charted at #1 in Spotify’s Global Viral Charts.
After ‘Raindrops’ the group went on a hiatus, while Moglii found himself a handful of releases with our lovely friends at Majestic Casual. But Today I am here to let you know the wait is over, and Moglebaum just released their latest single ‘Echo Of Time’, which stands true to the sounds we have come to love from them. With the excellent production of Moglii to the dreamy vocals, saxophone and infectious drums, Moglebaum will show you why they deserve a spot on your playlist.

Today we’re here to talk about the stellar remix by none other than Nathaniel Knows, who is known for his hard trap sound, and the mysterious project SweetLick.
