PRODUCER PROFILE is a platform in where we interview music creators, i.e. producers/beatmakers, both locally and globally, and showcase their exclusive musical works. The goal of PRODUCER PROFILE is to further explore and reveal how these highly sophisticated and tight-knit communities of grassroots music creators are crossing borders, both in sound and geographic location. Their music is innovative and visionary – their music is powerful, brilliant, and unapologetic – and their music is part of a fast growing worldwide movement that is changing the way we listen, share, and consume music.

STERYO’s Producer Profile series #3 features Quebec’s finest beat-maker/sound collector/graphic designer, Mr. Moods.
When it comes to sound quality, arrangement, and concepts, Mr. Moods is a master! From his cinematic rhythms showcased in his music to the artsy album covers, Mr. Moods’ music takes you on a dramatic roller-coaster journey lifted from innumerable media samples and carefully pieced together from an array of sounds, each with it’s own distinct vibe designed to cater to the listener’s neurological needs. Mr. Moods is a sound psychologist, he knows what you want immediately after you hear the music and he understands the power of his talent. In one way, ‘free-thinking music’ is a category that best describes his music, and the other, “action-based.” You cannot count his solo catalog with two hands, neither his frequent collaborations with international collectives: The Jazz Jousters, French Touch Connection, Erik Jackson, Jenova 7, to name a few. Trust me, he is the definition of work ethic!
With great pleasure, ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Moods.
