Special Fan Club Pre-sale on
starting  today, Wednesday November 30th at NOON EST. Early Bird for FIRST 48 HOURS only!

"A true student of the electronic era, MiMosa isn't just another whomp-stomp-wobble-repeater maestro: His tracks blend drums, bass, hip-hop, dub and downtempo into one melodic collage that will have you grooving from start to finish."
- Westword

"...that kid has the fortune of talent and an ear to match."
- Magnetic Magazine


"When Mimosa - raging behind a Macbook, his faux-hawk whipping around like a rabid squirrel’s tail - squashes the sonic tension he’s so carefully built by unleashing a hard-as-nails, low-end accompanied beat, the whole damn club goes next-level bonkers."
- Philadelphia Weekly

MiMOSA is taking North America by storm, selling out major venues all over the country such as Royale in Boston, Webster Hall in New York City, and House of Blues in Chicago. He's continuing his conquest through the winter, with shows in Austin, Orange County, Charleston, Knoxville, and St. Louis, just to name a few. He will also be ringing in the new year in Los Angeles at Together As One, alongside some of the biggest and brightest stars of electronic music. 

Blissfully unconcerned with a world obsessed with categorization as a means of definition, Tigran aka MiM0SA crafts music for its own sake, defying expectations with genre bending soundscapes. Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area and currently residing in Los Angeles, MiM0SA began producing at the tender age of 17. Blessed with an abundance of talent and an ear for sonic experimentation, this fan-favorite has quickly developed a name for himself as one of the West Coast’s top exports. And the word is spreading fast. To say that MiM0SA is on the rise is to miss the mark. Rather, MiM0SA has arrived.

It was in Brooklyn, NY where MiM0SA found refuge as he wrote, recorded and produced his debut full length album "Sanctuary" that was released October 25 on False Idol Musik. After just one listen, it’s evident that his versatility as an artist goes hand in hand with his refusal to be tied down by any particular sound or style.   

While his previous EP release "58 Degrees" favored a more grittier fusion of unrelenting beats and grime, "Sanctuary" works as one cohesive whole piece of work that finds MiM0SA immersed in rhythm, encompassing and centered around the 808 drum kit most notable on the track "Last Night In Town". However the album carries an authenticity by which MiM0SA's aesthetic appreciation of the origin of sound is fused with layers of various styles, textures, and grooves that embrace Dubstep, Hip-Hop, 2-step, Moombahton, Dub, and Downtempo. It becomes apparent that while building this collage, his vision was to "Steer away from aggressive tones, but at the same time try to find different avenues to get the same crowd response that a big bass drop would get,” he comments. 

"He walked on stage and started melting faces with a sort of relentless energy that completely blew me away."
- Earmilk

Whereas the album’s subtle creshendos rely on MiM0SA’s emotional artistic expression, his live sets are focused on pure raw energy that capture the rush of earth quaking low end.

In just a few short years he’s shared the stage with standard-bearers like Benga, Skream, Rusko, Datsik, Glitch Mob, Pretty Lights, and Flying Lotus. He’s also played festivals and shows across North America, including Coachella, Symbiosis Gathering, Burning Man, Decibel Festival, and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The words tireless and prolific don’t quite do MiM0SA justice.  In one weekend he headlined Lightning in a Bottle, blasted over to Summer Camp, and finished off the weekend with a blistering performance Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
