Rising techno producer Nicole Moudaber will release her debut album, Believe, on May 6th on Drumcode. It's a special occasion for sure, but Moudaber says the "icing on the cake" was getting to work with label boss Adam Beyer. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to the duo's cut, "Take Hold," a driving nine-minute track with a relentless four-to-the-floor beat that sprouts all sorts of eerie synths and twisted vocal samples.

"We've been talking about joining forces for awhile but time didn't permit with our hectic schedules," Moudaber tells Rolling Stone of working with Beyer. "There are plans to do more after the summer together; there will be more where this came from. We consistently bounce ideas back and forth; we work very well together. We come from the same ethos that is pure techno."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
