Composer • Performer

First and foremost a musician with 10 years of classical music under his belt, Mossa (alias Jeremy Petrus)’s instrumental background has coloured his electronic compositions. After years as a DJ, Mossa has combined his many styles to create a body of work rhythmically solid and subjective, at times minimalist, amusing, and rarely symmetrical. Using an assortment of plastic and static sounds collected here and there, he arranges an eclectic bouquet of rhythm and kick. He had recorded on labels such as Cynosure, Mo’s Ferry, Mutek, Floppy Funk, Morris Audio and Orca and has been remixed by supreme producers like Mike Shannon, John Tejada and Ark. One of his milestones is his first long play Some Eat it Raw on Circus Company. With his record label Complot, Mossa is also dedicated to releasing, along with fellow artists, an uncompromising style in house music and minimal techno, bringing an air of freshness to the Montréal scene. His DJ orchestra project has mesmerised more than one, in Montréal and Paris—groundbreaking music making with turntables.
