Moomin defined his musical career by crafting subtle, yet effective, deep house. In the early '90s, Moomin was dedicated to collecting hip-hop records.
By 1995, and with a growing collection, he started to DJ in his hometown of Kiel, Germany. Around the same time, he began experimenting with music production, using a simple DOS program known as Fastracker. He gradually incorporated more hardware into his methods, including an MPC to sample the old jazz, funk, and hip-hop records he had acquired. Eventually, Moomin became disenfranchised by the German hip-hop scene, transitioning to house music instead. The change in genre called for a change of location, so he migrated to Germany's creative capitol, Berlin. Over a decade later, in 2010, Moomin released his debut EP via AIM; he wasn't as concerned about the long wait for his debut as he was about creating it. The EP received positive reviews, causing German label Smallville Records -- with a roster including Move D, Christopher Rau, and label founders Smallpeople -- to reach out to Moomin. They urged him to release a full-length album, resulting in 2011's The Story About You. Genz's production style fit perfectly with the Smallville ethos of understated and thoughtful house, creating a close relationship with the label in the years that followed. After the success of his debut full-length and a string of EPs, Smallville encouraged him to release another Moomin album, resulting in 2016's A Minor Thought. ~ Liam Martin, Rovi
