Electro | Mooij – Prime EP [SectionZ]
Frederik Mooij is no newbie to the electro-tinged EDM Scene. With celebrated releases through such imprints as SectionZ and Hatrax, the man that makes up half of Icarus Fly is an unsung staple in the electro scene.

From ’80s inspired prog-house to late-aughts complextro, this one is made for sweaty dancefloors. Get the EP here.
