The Mole (CA)

Anyone who has witnessed The Mole (Wagon Repair) ambush an unsuspecting audience knows that he has the uncanny ability to drive the most complacent crowds into a frenzy of looped grooves that name-check disco pioneers like Giorgio Moroder as equally as they rejuvenate the wizened soul of Detroit techno innovators like Moodymann and Carl Craig.

The Mole, which is the alias for Victoria-native Colin de la Plante, who also performs live at MUTEK this year as part of The Modern Deep Left Quartet, has been leaping from success to success these past few years, on the strength of his debut album, As High as the Sky (Wagon Repair, 2008).

The Mole delivers a performance that was voted among the Top 10 live shows globally in 2008 by the electronic trendsetters over at Resident Advisor, and the results are nothing less than an injection of fired-up disco groove into the machine of techno.
