Born Rolf Elias Mösli to a Swiss father and Dominican mother, RE Moesli is a musician, songwriter, MC and dancer based in St. Gallen, Balgach, Switzerland. After falling in love with the vibe of American hip-hop, Moesli became obsessed with all things underground, competing with friends to see who could find the most cutting edge and obscure tracks the genre had to offer. One of these friendships led to his first gigs in Europe, as a member of the rap duo MostDefinite. This eventually led to RE Moesli proudly venturing into a solo career. The banging single, chosen to launch his onslaught in the game, is “El Lapicero” (which means “the pen”). The track was inspired by the love for his mother’s homeland, the Dominican Republic, which Moesli promptly visited, and felt a deep connection to.
The up and coming 22 year old, has hit the ground flying with “El Lapicero” – the single counted in excess of 5k plays in its first week and a half on Spotify. This quick ascension potentially confirms RE Moesli’s aspiration that the power of the pen can turn his dreams into reality.
However the artist knows that this initial success comes with the help and support of those involved with the project, hence he continually shows his love and gratitude to all concerned. This is a very rare trait in an industry currently overrun by overblown megalomaniacs. However, though Moesli may be humble and obliging, he is equally confident and determined to achieve his goals.
