Mokita and slenderbodies team up for a smooth new indie pop collaboration entitled “Speeding Up”, fusing both their unique sounds into one cohesive, vibey track.
Nashville’s John-Luke Carter, aka Mokita, is a singer/songwriter/producer known for his lyrical and buoyant electronic-based pop. Carter was classically trained in piano in his youth and first started performing in his church. Later, he taught himself to play guitar and eventually transitioned into electronic music production where he has since worked on music with Kina, Dabin, Ella Vos, Stand Atlantic, American Football, GOLDHOUSE, Luca Schreiner, Slenderbodies, Don Diablo, R3HAB, Sarah Reeves, Lost Frequencies, Gavin Haley and more.
To date, his catalog has 400+ Million Streams on Spotify alone and 12.9 Million streams on Apple Music. For some artists, music might be an exercise in aesthetics, written emotionally guarded at arm’s length, or from the perspective of another. But for artists like Nashville’s Mokita, it’s an unrelentingly honest, deeply personal, unwaveringly confessional form of expression, an outlet to tackle the sincerest of subjects many songwriters are all-too-often afraid to address with such candor, in a style that bridges Mokita’s classical training and singer-songwriter upbringing with his work as a producer and a penchant for crafting layered and atmospheric modern electro-pop.
Indie electronic duo Slenderbodies fuse supple beats and dreamy guitar work with hushed R&B vocals that rarely dip below a falsetto range. soraya Formed in Los Angeles, the band emerged in the summer of 2016 with their self-released debut, Sotto Voce, introducing fans to their shimmering, low-key pop. A follow-up EP, Fabulist, arrived in 2017, along with a pair of singles, “Lucid” and “Amnesia.” The following year saw the duo issue a trio of singles, including the silky “King,” ahead of the release of the Soraya EP, which arrived in January 2019. Slenderbodies’ sophomore full-length, Komorebi, appeared later that September.
