Local space funk duo Mozam has big plans for Treefort. On Thursday, March 22, the men behind the knobs will accompany DJ Bodie for a special late-night set of disco and laser funk at The Shredder.
Mozam will then perform a set at the Deer Lodge Showcase on Friday, March 23, at the Linen Building from 9-9:40 p.m., alongside fellow psychedelic trailblazers Matthewdavid, Sun Araw Band, and Monster Rally & RUMTUM. Local VJ king Tyler Bowling will produce visuals for both Mozam appearances.
“We’ll be putting together a more lively, pumped-up set for that Friday night performance,“ promised Mozam’s Trevor Kamplain. “The showcase is going to be a little more on the psychedelic side of music, a little more abstract, a little more avant garde. It’s not going to be everybody’s cup of tea, but if you like to see some good, loud, fun psych, that’s the place to be.”
Mozam released an album last year on Barnowl Records called Creme de la Kremlin. It’s six songs of chilled-out electro with lots of exotic island flavors. Live, the band mixes it up a bit with faster with heavier beats taking its ambient jams out of the bedroom and transforming them into something more suitable for the club.
