Project: Mooncircle have become synonymous with class. Their releases right from the beginning have become unmissable and it is a label that excites many of us music heads out there.
There’s always something special about the releases from Project: Mooncircle – the Berlin imprint first established in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking as an outpost for experimental sounds in a city dominated by techno. Always teetering on the boundary between the organic and electronic, and with acute attention to artwork and design.
Seemingly not a year goes by that this Berlin-based label doesn’t put out some of the finest and most criminally underrated down tempo beat music on the planet, and 2016 was no exception.
Immer mit großartigem Artwork, immer mit dem Versprechen, etwas Besonderes abzuliefern, etwas, was es so noch nicht gab oder gibt, etwas, das der musikalischen Landschaft ein Ausrufezeichen hinzufügen kann.
As always Project Mooncircle put together an array of artists to satisfy all appetites
great collective sound involved here.
Es gibt Plattenfirmen, da sagt Dir allein schon der Labelname auf dem Cover: „Ja, hier ist gute Musik drin. Greif zu!“ So wie bei Project Mooncircle aus Berlin.
Project Mooncircle is a label with an impressively developed aesthetic, often touching on the melodic 1990s electronica of the likes of Plaid and early Aphex Twin, but also with a strong songwriting sensibility and gorgeously expensive-sounding production values.
