Dutch house duo Moksi are no doubt artists to keep an eye on. In addition to their club music roots, they also have a U.K.-garage-influenced sound. Their most recent album, Free Moksi, was released in March 2022. The bass-heavy house album featured Slushii, Dan Soleil, and Dread MC to name a few. In January, they debuted their first single of the year and instant hit, “Runnin” featuring ANEILIA.
Samir and Diego released their first single, “Getting Higher,” after meeting at a house party in 2015. After impressing Yellow Claw with the single, the pair signed with the Barong Family label. Moksi released their first EP, Brace Yourself, and played their first show at Tomorrowland, all in the same year. After dozens of singles and a few EPs, their first full-length album, The Return of House Music, was released in 2019. Today, the duo has 876,000 monthly listeners.
Moksi’s International Club Tour
After two months of hard work in the studio, Moksi hit the road for an international club tour in March. This is their first tour of 2023 with stops in the U.K., Netherlands, Thailand, Singapore, and the U.S. They traveled to Denver, Colorado, and hit Temple Nightclub on March 25th. This stop featured Equalizor and Phat Jazz as the openers.
With doors at 10:00 PM, Temple already had a line of eager house-heads.
The first opener promptly took the stage at 10 PM. While attendees got situated and drinks were flowing, Equalizor knew just what would get the crowd going. Remixes of “All Around The World” and “All of The Lights” got everyone moving. Later in the set, he played his most recent track, “Hit Me With Love.”
By the time PhatJazz came on at 11:15 PM, there was little standing room on any level of the club. The Denver DJ and producer did not disappoint the crowd. With a heavy house focus, their music draws inspiration from other genres like disco, hip-hop, and bass. This mix kept everyone dancing and interested, offering a perfect segue into Moksi’s set.

At 12:30 AM, the energetic duo took the stage to close out the night. Every level of Temple was packed at this point. Mainly focusing on remixes of popular house songs, they were sure to throw in many of their most popular tracks. The crowd went wild for house-heavy hits like “Boom Shakalaka” and “Tidalwave.” Towards the end of their set, they remixed one of their best songs, “Slow Burn,” with “Turn On The Lights again…” by Fred Again featuring Swedish House Mafia and Future.
Denver House Heads Showed Upok
Despite the cold temperatures, Denver house heads came through and packed the venue. Moksi delivered a classic house-heavy club show to Temple and surely gained a ton of new listeners. The duo continue with a few more stops in the U.S. At the end of next month, they will conclude their tour with a show in Tivoli, Netherlands, on April 21st.
