The Club Born in Mantova in 2006/2007, the Moxa experienced an amazing artistic grow in the last few years, becoming an autentic opinion leader of the worldwide clubbing scene.

In 2010 Moxa has been voted as the best italian cub for quality and music sheduling at the 2Night Awards in Milan, and in 2011 reached the 44th position in the Top 100 clubs chart on DJ Mag ! Follow the X - The Compilation The compilation, mixed by the talented Moxa dj Reisdent Alex Ferrazzi, was created from friendship, empathy, admiration and the mutual respect that binds Moxa to all the DJ's that have been an integral part of the club. From day one, music was at the heart of every project that the club has been involved in, with the sole support of immense passion for club culture. A considerable amount of that time has been spent trying to create a work that was the exact image of the club. Simone Piadena, the owner says.We started talking with the artists that have been directly involved in Moxa, asking them to participate by contributing a song that they felt best represented the spirit of Moxa. The enthusiasm from the producers , and the desire for them to want to been involved in a soundtrack to Moxa's life, was overwhelming. Moxa is deeply proud of bringing together many of the artists who helped shape the history of dance music. But way beyond this, the greatest achievement encapsulated in this compilation is the quality of the music, the spirit of Moxa and the achievement of a dream. A snapshot. A diary. A musical moment of what Moxa means to all involved.
