This midlands based dj is definitely one to watch ,his ability to read a crowd is second to none and he prides himself on quality mixing and being different by using fx units, loop machines,accapellas and sound scaping samples over the top of his music..
"Mogs you ask?? well it started when i first found the love for clubbing and all thats involved with it..You no how it goes, its 6am sunday and ur still wanting more...so what better idea than a house party!!! Well in the comfort of your own home we went back to a friends where it got very messy to say the least!!
The night went from reality to an amzing dream full of colours, when i get woken up to find my friends laughing at my expense...he he only to find out i've been acting like a cat who was just by the side of me!!
Mogs came from the word TRANSMOGRIFICATION!!(The time where i change from a human to cat like!!) if u have read all that then im impressed!! its a question i get asked alot so there you have it lol....."thx ben for coming up with the name"
TRMNL, DEUCE, PLAY, UP2NOGOOD, GLAS RESIDENT!! .
A resident for DEUCE since 2005 after meeting Adam Robins in ibiza has seen Mogs move up the ranks in birmingham gaining him sets and more residencys in the midlands playing along side some of the dj's he grew up adoring..Deuce picked up on mogs ability to please a crowd and create sets and a vibe that suited the birminghams scene.
Picking up his new sound from his first time in IBIZA in 2005 mogs was given the chance to express this at these unique paries Deuce were hosting!
Deuce has hosted some of birminghams best outdoor and club parties to date with the new concept of THE GHETTO BLASTER where these sell out events in 2009 were the talk of the city!! Thanks to Deuce and Adam Robins was the start of things to come!
His residency for Deuce @ the custard factory caught the attention of alike nights and his career wirlwinded into sets every week in britons second biggest city Like - Habit,Bunka,Play,Up2nogood & stupid underground!
2009 Mogs stepped up another gear with getting a residency for the most talked about and antisipated underground club the uk has seen TRMNL!!
TRMNL soon reconised Mogs passion for music and the creativity to be different to the thousands of dj's out there and was soon playing along side the likes of REBOOT,STEVE BUG,DINKY, ITALOBOYZ,KREON,ANTON PIETTE to name but a few!
Off the back of this residency he was soon whipped up by G.L.A.S and was asked to play one of the worlds most talked about clubs AMNESIA (IBIZA) where his set there playing to 3000 people on the terrace was not to be ignored. This only aided to his career and now Mogs is taking bookings all over europe and the uk in 2010!

(habit promoters... andy + matt)
"Tonights show features an interview and guest mix with Mogs, one of the Midlands hardest working DJ's."
(paolo , glitch show!!! on www.rhubarbradio.com)
"As Deuce Soundsystem move into their tenth year they show absolutely no signs of stopping. Resident DJ Mogs has become one of the Midlands most respected DJs gaining a huge fan base with his unique style of underground house and techno"
(custard factory adam deuce)
"This will be Deuce's second New Years Eve at The Custard Factory. Last year resident DJ Mogs played the midnight set and took the roof off with Depeche Mode classic - Just Can't get enough. Make sure you are in The Gallery this year to hear what treat he has in store for us. What will be the first tune you hear in 2009? Only one man knows - Mogs!!"
(adam robins... deucesoundsystem)
"It’s worth mentioning the second place dj... MOGS, a highly talented DJ with absolutely amazing technical ability. Every time he comes on the decks I’m excited to see what he’s going to pull out the bag and he’s never disappointed. Not only that I’ve never seen anyone enjoy playing so much!"
(d-joust comp 2008 ..zolee worsley)
"Thanks for last nite again. Technically loved listening to you and the style your championing is top draw.
The refreshing thing about you Mogs is that you have it all and your attitude is a1 too. You love it for all the right reasons but i just don't think you have had any breaks
"Your set stood out and was good to see a nice smiley DJ up there having a good time. Tight mixing and great use of effects. I salut thee!! (and great track selection, but i don't wanna go on and on!hahaha!!"
Hope to catch one of your sets soonaroonie
(janette slack @ d-joust final)
"A DJ who brings 110% to every set he plays, MOGS has been absolutely outstanding in both his rounds and achieved one of the highest scores ever recorded by the judges in his recent semi final win. Part of the infamous Midlands based Deuce sound system and another DJ with a large following we’re expecting something very special for the final"
(DANNY D-JOUST NOV 08)
This week we've the return of one of our favourite dj's. He's not played since the launch night, but thats only cause he's been too busy winning competitions and playing at illustrious venues such as Ministry of Sound in London. We welcome back the Deuce pioneer and all-round superstar Mogs! He'll be using all his wizardry and technological know-how to whisk you into a frenzy with a 90 minute set of sheer techno overload....make sure you don't miss this week...!
(WORCESTERS NOIZE PROMOTER TIM!)
"Boy do we have a treat for you! 2 of the Midlands most respected undercurrent champions collide in a jungle of audio wires as they wrestle it out as the dj/producer hybrid duo: Equals 2. Witness 'on the fly' battle mode from these 2 twisters, round for round, tweak for tweak, bass for bass. CDJ against laptop... engaging stuff... the fight is on! "mogs and tomas rubeck"
