Mo' Horizons is a duo of DJs from Hannover, Germany.[1] Their music can be described as a mixture of downtempo, acid-jazz, nu jazz, soul, funk, dub, trip hop, big beat, bossa nova, boogaloo and drum'n'bass.[2][3] They first came to prominence on various compilation albums, including the Buddha Bar series. They are known for their extensive use of sampling and modern production techniques in Latin jazz.[4] Also known for recording a Portuguese version of a classic hit Hit The Road Jack.

Their tracks were remixed by many DJs, including Nicola Conte, Swag, Skeewiff, Bobby Hughes, Only Child and DJ Day.[5]

At their beginning, Mo' Horizons have been signed to the 'Stereo Deluxe' label.[6] After releasing their fourth studio album, Mo' Horizons decided to create their own recording studio - Agogo Records. Currently apart from releasing own albums, they are looking for new talents from around the world, to help them with first releases.
