BEEP016: Moon & Sun – The Wild Things Remixed!

We are thrilled to present you ‘The Wild Things Remixed’ by Moon & Sun! The album is packed with remixes by friends of Moon & Sun from all over the world, the most eye-catching might be American musician Gavin Russom. Russom who has released music under various guises, including Black Meteoric Star The Crystal Ark is also known for his live performances with LCD Soundsystem. Other equal awesome contributions come from PrejkaGAERRAGeneral Mustafa, Mats Björk, Strange BoutiqueSkeppet. More info on them can be found if you scroll a little down.

‘The Wild Things Remixed’ comes in a stunning package. The artwork (originally designed by Nicole Martens) was remixed by Monica Tormell herself. Owh crap, we almost forgot actions speak louder then words. Put on those headphones amigos! It all starts HERE!

The Remixers

Prejka is a collective music blog based in Malmö, Sweden. Some of them run clubs, some do edits, some play in bands, some run record companies, some even make love to each other. What brings them together is of course the love for music and their dedicated effort to establish some sort of surrounding as a functional aphrodisiac community where you can get a sneak peak into their multi coloured living room. What you can expect to hear is everything from psyched out rhythmical expressions to sounds flirting with a lust of experimentation, further on towards lush disco and unknown algorithms.

GAERRA is Rickard Daun, his alias for making more or less disturbing industrial-woodoo-weirdness. Martin Nordbeck is Malmös most active (but not most wellknowned) musicmaker. Under the name Ken Ood they create a blend of techno-house-acid-drone-music concrete, live and improvised.

General Mustafa is the Swedish artist and musician Karl Georg Staffan Björk. He is the co-producer and drummer of Moon & Sun and has played in bands like Mustafa et Monique, Seamonster¹, Arsedestroyer and Hjärnsläpp.

Gavin Russom is a musician and artist signed to DFA Records. Over the years, Russom has released music under various guises, including Black Leotard Front, Black Meteoric Star and The Crystal Ark, as well as collaborative work with Delia Gonzalez. Russom lives in New York City. He has also toured playing synths and percussion with LCD Soundsystem. Known as “The Wizard” for his technical prowess (as well as for his signature flowing red beard), Russom has built instruments for the likes of James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), Tim Goldsworthy (UNKLE, The Loving Hand) and Bjorn Copeland (Black Dice).

Mats Björk is a Swedish sound artist with a past in large variety of constellations and styles (amongst other Seamonster¹ with his brother Staffan Björk), now exploring sound and music under the banner “free composition”.

Flummig Mulch was formed especially for this project. Extended delays – taping it seriously, while taping the hiss. It was made by two friends, deep in the Amsterdam ‘Bimmer’.

Strange Boutique is the joining of forces between Nicole Martens and Femke Dekker of My Little Underground. Used as a label for their various collaborative projects – whether it be fashion, art or music – Strange Boutique is a playground for two opinionated kindred spirits exhibiting a fondness of the strange, the weird, the psychedelic and some disco.

Skeppet from Malmö consists of Andreas Malm and Henrik Wallin (both members of long running project Fria Konstellationen, as well as heads in charge of the great Kosmisk Väg imprint). Skeppet is like a long and mesmerizing trip into the sun, and a truly beautiful take on kraut/kosmische music.

Stream the Moon & Sun Radio Release Party

Last Saturday (Nov 19th) the Moon & Sun crew got together with their merry bunch of remixers in the small but cozy studio of Red Light Radio to celebrate the release of the lovely The Wild Things Remixed. For no less then five hours the gang talked about the release, the remixers and of course they spun some records. It’s a great background tune while you’re working your way towards the weekend. And it’s an even better way to get to know some awesome new music.

The Wild Things Remixed will be available as off Monday 28 November. But cool people tend to pre order before that in our shop!

New song by The Black Atlantic!

During those two years these guys aged musically like a fine wine. Their new single The Flooded Road which was released today, is a beautiful nostalgic track that makes us want to slow dance with our high school sweethearts.  And we will do exactly such a thing tonight!
