Hailing from North Africa, Mouhcine Zouitina better known as Polyswitch made a name for himself as one of the most influential figures in the Moroccan electronic music landscape. Introduced to the scene more than a decade ago, Mouhcine first became known for providing his hometown ‘’Casablanca’’ with a monthly event back in 2011 which was a vanguard to the city’s club scene at the time. Inspired by the likes of; D’Angelo, Herbie Hancock, J Dilla, James Brown, Larry Heard, Miles Davis, Prince, Sun-Ra, P-Funk, Weather Report, and Underground Resistance to name a few, his performances consistently channel a broad range of musical currents, all blended masterfully under one roof, bridging the gap between his native African roots and universal dance-floors.
In early 2013, he went onto releasing his first EP ‘’Vacation’’ – a four-tracker that has showcased his ability to produce different styles of dance music, continuously honing his craft, he released a single on his fellow label ‘’Casa Voyager’’ in 2018, shortly before the founding of his imprint ‘’Astrofever Records’’ – Mouhcine’s firm step into the music industry, also a healthy way for the artist to flourish and embrace creative freedom without external guidance. Drawn from a vast and mature sound palette, committed to soul, funk, jazz, and hip-hop, his latest musical works ‘’FEVERISH CUTS’’ (published in two volumes) caught the attention of many established producers and led his material to sit in record stores shelves next to the most respected names in music around the globe.
Juggling between his studio and the turntables, Polyswitch landed performances over the past years on an International scale as well as locally. he was regularly invited to perform in Key local festivals and played among acts such as; Hunee, Fred P, Josey Rebelle, Nu Guinea Moodymann, Theo Parrish, Marcellus Pittmann, Giles Peterson, Funkineven, Glenn Underground, Larry Heard and more.
