American-born artist, songwriter, and producer, John-Luke Carter, known professionally as MOKITA, has quickly garnered attention for his ability to blend huge pop hooks with zen-like production, certainly playing into the meaning behind his stage name. The word “MOKITA,” which derives from a language called Kivila, known to be spoken in Papua New Guinea, translates loosely as “the truth we all know but agree not to talk about.”
Since starting the project in 2016, Mokita has quickly gained acclaim for both his original music and remixes, including his single "Monopoly," which was a collaboration with vocalist CADE. Within only a few months, "Monopoly" surpassed 10 million streams on Spotify. The follow-up track titled "Heaven" further exemplified MOKITA’s talent as a triple-threat musical creator as it was written, produced, and featured solely his vocals.
Since, Mokita has been commissioned to create remixes for the likes of Cheat Codes, legendary dance artist, Armin Van Burren, and up and comers Betty Who and Taylor Bouno to name a few. His third single, titled "Goodbye," is a re-imagination of Third Eye Blind’s '90s hit single "Semi-Charmed Life" and was created as a duet featuring rising pop icon Maty Noyes.
