Project Mooncircle is a “left-field” electronic label based in Berlin. They’ve been around for about 15 years, pushing the limits of the twisted, broken-beat genre of instrumental electronica. It’s not house, it’s not EDM, rather their sounds and the artists they support stand out in their own distinct way. One such artist is Sweatson Klank, the LA-based artist formerly known as Take.
The label is gearing up to release their 15th anniversary compilation on January 6th. Sweatson’s contribution is more of his signature playfully delicate intricacies led by a meditative bassline and accented with hypnotic foley. Like the festive scene of a A Midsummer Night’s Dream, his sounds, particularly on “Either Way”, imbue a feeling of mellow giddiness; a natural, organic glee that leaves you feeling comfortably happy.
The Project Mooncircle compilation will feature a slew of artists including Synkro, Jehst, Robot Koch, Fybe One, Tom Day, and a couple dozen others. The box artwork was designed by English comic illustrator Dave McKean, who has worked with Dark Horse Comics, DC, and Tundra.
Founding member Gordon offered some insight on the massive release, “Luckily, we have not crashed into any lunar crater with our listeners. We want to thank you for making this long journey possible and we greatly look forward to celebrating this milestone with our partners, musical family and of course with you, our listeners.”
Pre-order the compilation now on colored vinyl, CD, and/or digital download. The limited box vinyl (only 500 copies) includes five colored plates with over 35 exclusive tunes and four bonus tracks available digitally. The box also includes a double CD designed by Lorena Assisi, a large-sized T-shirt, and documentary about the label.
