EXOTIC WORLD ROCK & FUNK AT RAPPCATS ONE DAY ONLY

Noon — 6PM
5636 York Blvd,
Los Angeles CA 90042
MoSS is a hip hop producer, for the likes of Ghostface Killah and Guilty Simpson. The kind of dude who hangs out with DJ Premier – and, in his spare time, scours the globe for the most awesome and obscure World Rock, Funk and Folk albums, which he issues on his Strawberry Rain imprint. The likes of the incredible Thai Caravan, Indonesia’s hard rock kings AKA and Zamrock hero Keith Mlevhu have all been issued on MoSS’s imprint.
He met Egon when he sold him a record by South Korean psych gods He 6. The two started collaborating on reissues with their joint effort Those Shocking Shaking Days, Indonesian Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive Rock And Funk. They’ve continued working together on many of Now-Again’s Zamrock reissues, including the forthcoming Welcome To Zamrock anthologies.
MoSS is a quiet record dealer, but he sells to everyone from psych druid Hans Pokora – with whom he edited the last of the lauded Record Collector Dream rock bibles – to Madlib, Jake One and Diamond D. For this special pop up he’s bringing everything from modal jazz to rare library LP’s to grail-level World rock LP’s – along with the entirety of his Strawberry Rain run, including many limited edition albums.
