Sugi Dakks is the brainchild of LA based Kyle Donald, a Jazz Piano Performance major, his dual interests in poetry and music merged into the pop/soul/jazz/hip hop sound that is Sugi Dakks. His blend of rap, singing, jazz piano is largely self-produced and draws inspiration from Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak, Stevie Wonder and Miles Davis. As a writer/producer he has upcoming cuts with Wale, DWY and Raina Rich.

Moglii is a producer, songwriter and synth slayer based in Cologne. He studied jazz piano in Düsseldorf, Germany. After his collaborative “Down Under EP” with NOVAA in 2016 (single “Mother” reached #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral Charts and 4 million hits), he dropped his very first solo 7 Track EP called Naboo in 2017 on Majestic Casual Records (over 1 9 million plays). His music reached the top 10 of Hype Maschine Charts several times and got featured by COLORS, Fresh Finds or The Sound you need.
Moglii is creating his unique and significant style out of warm beats, analogue synthesizers and soulful vocal samples. His modern electronic compositions are often supplemented by acoustic instruments and an organic soundscape. Its futuristic pop music influenced by the sound of Mura Masa, James Blake or Bon Iver Moglii ’s lively and playful tracks are made for big stages as well as for the headphones of an urban music enthusiast. A lot of samples are self made, with the help of field recording of coffee machines, shopping bags or cactuses.

Their single “Raindrops” reached #1 on Spotify’s global viral charts in July 2016 and more than 1 million streams. This second project is frozen since 201 8.
