Born in Cali, Colombia in September 1993, Moska fell in
love with Dance music by watching a Sensation White
video in Amsterdam at the age of 14. He then decided to use
his family's 1Gb desktop computer to create remixes and
mashups of other artist tracks; mainly inspired by Michael
Jackson and the Dirty Dutch sound.
Daniel Amezquita aka "Moska" got his nick name from high
school friends. In Colombia, the word "moska" describes a
"hyped", "alert" and "intuitive" person, and that's what
Daniel Amezquita is all about.
In 2011 he remixed Jordan Ferrer's “I Need You" and
immediately caught world class producer Laidback Luke´s
attention via his blog and he supported him playing the
track on his shows.
By using simple blackberry earphones and pure talent, he
produced Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna's "We Found Love"
bootleg, a production that grabbed the infamous Tiesto's
attention after listening to Luke play it in Miami at club LIV,
one of the world's most famous nightclubs.
Thanks to Tijs significant support after playing his records
at Ultra Music Festival 2012, Moska's talent roof topped. Not
long after Ultra Music Festival 2012 ended, he remixed
Laidback Luke ft. Wynter Gordon's track "Speak Up" for MixMash Records.
After his enormous success with "Speak
Up", Tiesto gave him the opportunity to remix "Las Vegas",
the bonus track for the new Club Life Miami CD released by
Musical Freedom, delivering a "Bomb".
Moska's music has been featured in several radio shows
and Club life podcast along with Axwell ft. Steve Edward's
"Watch the Sunrise" bootleg.
Aside from the big names mentioned, Moska has also had
the privilege of having his tracks played by other world
known DJs like Congorock, and Angger Dimas.
Pure talent can't be stopped and we will definitely hear a lot
from this young talent. 2012 is set to turn up the heat even
more as Moska is working in remixes for some of the
biggest artists and producers in electronic music as he.
