Berlin's finest purveyors of retro funk and soul Hush Moss spill all in this week's Internet Crush.

Hush Moss are one of Berlin’s best-kept secrets. Originally from Israel, the group moved to the city after the release of their debut album It Takes A Lot and soon developed a cult following. On record, they specialise in lo-fi, slinky soul and funk, drenched in 70s nostalgia while live they’re something else entirely, main-man Eden’s iconic vocal igniting nights of endless dancing. Earlier this month they dropped their latest single ‘Meant To Be’ and we think the world needs to hear it so we sat Eden down for this week’s Internet Crush.
