Moullinex’s ‘Hypersex’ is a Love Letter to Club Culture


Portuguese producer Luis Clara is kicking his Moullinex project into high gear next month with his upcoming third album, Hypersex (DiscoTexas). He says it’s a collective love letter to club culture that’s inspired by recent world events.

Due out on October 6, Hypersex features an impressive roster of collaborators: Fritz Helder (Azari & III), Georgia Anne Muldrow (Flying Lotus, Mos Def), UhAhUh, Tee Flowers, Iwona Skwarek (Rebeka), Best Youth, Marta Ren and Da Chick. Design geeks will be overjoyed to know that the album cover was designed by Bráulio Amado (Frank Ocean, Beck, Washed Out).

“When I started working on it in 2016, an unprecedented refugee crisis was happening and Europe was turning its back on it,” Clara says. “In the US, a massacre had just taken place in a gay nightclub in Orlando and the country was getting ready to elect Donald Trump. I had to respond. So I reached out to like-minded artists I admired, and set out to create my most collaborative project yet. The world we live in is getting sadder and grey. We don’t expect to change it with a record, but we might as well add some color to it.”

“We can dance our way to a better world,” Clara says. “A world with room for everyone, regardless of their origin, political views, race, religion, gender, and sexuality.”
