At the frontier of Dub in digital style, Moonshine Recordings advances their critically acclaimed LP series, embracing the sounds of French producer and true-to-the-roots live artist Miniman. Fierce proponent of sound system music for more than two decades, the veteran is at it again in full force. A journey through his musical universe - embedded within the varied sonic nature of Dub, strictly rigged for the dance floor.
Procuring an immense sense of space, ‘Path of Stars’ leaves listeners mingling with interstellar harmonica melodies on a firm foundation of low frequency movement, striking just the right chord skanks. Roots vocalist Murray Man spearheads ‘From Creation’ on a militant groove, topped off by eerie theremin fragments and crystal-clear harmonies. ‘Ascension’ profoundly turns up the heat as radical chord stabs intersperse with its zealous bass line - a no holds barred conquest. Hurled into a spiritual heavyweight meditation, flute arpeggios lead the way towards ‘Ancestors’ in a rootikal Stepper’s fashion. ‘Galactica’ ramps up the energy as its rocket-like trajectory sends you off into its high-energy sub combustion, making way for the next, subsequent sound system belter. ‘Marching Dub’ takes hold of every last fibre of your body, as its ample effectuation takes care of the rest. Returning for one more, Murray Man chants lyrical wisdom in ‘Nough A Dem Afraid Away’ - conscious lyrics on a sublime, instrumental foundation.
Resonant filter sweeps introduce the royal march of ‘Knights of Dub’ - high-velocity movements in action as the assertive soundscape roams free and unrestrained, assuredly causing havoc in the dance. Thoroughly stirring the foundation one last time ‘Back Inna De Yard’ takes off the gloves to hurl listeners into a militant Dub vortex, augmented by female vocal fragments and a ridiculously forceful low-end.

Repress Due - December 2018
Pure, distilled Dub. Upholding Jamaica’s legacy as well as Germany’s unequivocally influential Dub Techno spirit, Moonshine Recordings proudly welcomes their next addition to the roster. On the controls for the 9th full-length album release, a true-to-the-roots, all-analogue musician: Another Channel. Having put himself on the map with releases on Soukah’s Blacksoil Records, Bristol’s Transient Audio as well as on Australian imprint Modern Hypnosis, it’s now time for the album release, we’ve all been waiting for. No computer involved as impeccable arrangements and analogue reverberations unfold. Live and direct in the original Dub mixing fashion, the Augsburg-based artist uniquely transports the sonic characteristics of Rhythm & Sound into the present time.
Subtle vinyl crackles gently introducing meditative beats, ‘Run Dub’ sets the pace. Keen listeners find themselves embedded in lively echoes and reverbs, left to bask in smooth, sonic contemplation. Engineered to soothe the soul, timeless foundation sound. Intensified groove meets low-frequency pressure in ‘Amir Dub’ among haunting melodica fragments. ‘(Yes!) Badness’ unsheathes its off-kilter swing, vocal and foley samples musing in the distance - further showcasing Another Channel’s technical prowess. Heavy chord stabs and delicate overdrive counterpoint the immense scope of conjured space in ‘Ael Na Dub’, concluding a beautiful A-Side.
Lush chords lure us to the flip-side - ‘Solid’ kicks off with a staccato bass-line in the midst of lavish white noise surges and minimal drums. Rooted in endless feedback trails, steadily kept in check. Previously teased, the mighty ‘Ethiopian Dub’ steps through in full glory, carried by militant drum motion and forceful low-end. On a more spacious excursion, ‘Uranus’ takes a brightly lit stroll through the analogue Dub universe, led on by Another Channel’s signature groove propulsion. Pointing back towards A-Side, prolific Dub proponent Babe Roots presents his musical qualities in a monumental remix of ‘Run’.

Brewing another supremely heavy release on the horizon, Moonshine Recordings is stealing the spotlight once again. Proudly presenting Violinbwoy’s first solo album, unadulterated sound system pressure at its finest. Slavic chants and drum rhythms meet the unrivalled power of Violinbwoy’s eccentric take on modern bass music ‘Fyetisov’ kicks off the stellar 3x12” release with a high-powered Stepper emission. Setting the tone with a rumbling bassline and supremely energetic lead instrumentation, full force sound system music down to its core. Shining in a different light, ‘Moonspell’ reveals its melancholic nature – gradually intensifying through otherworldly percussion and anthemic vocal sample placements. Stripped down to its bare bones, ‘Dubplate’ unleashes its detuned, percussive shackles for a massive onslaught of four-to-the-floor, while keeping true to Jamaica’s music roots. Warbling tape echo spheres and excellence in emotive expression Violinbwoy’s collaboration with singer Marina P turns out to be an anthem by itself enthralling, whoever gets caught into the midst of this hymn of a track. Not backing down one step from the established level of quality, ‘Sound System’ featuring Junior Dread excels once more in a crystal-clear demonstration of modern roots music – mandatory repeat listening. Rejoicing in simplicity, ‘Rig Alert’ holds true to what the name suggests - cinematic bass meditation, fluidly scaling with the size of its speaker counterpart. Moving on to Dan’s vocal skills in ‘Wanted’: Rastafarian wisdom chanting along a skanking rhythm and orchestral atmosphere. Ethereal bells being submerged in moving air and scattered white noise, ‘Run & Hide’ demonstrates a more experimental side within the LP – exhibiting Downtempo/Ambient inclinations in a magnificent combination with Dub characteristics, only increasing in energy to the call of the dub siren. Ready for more, the title track ‘død’ captures us within the expressive, introductory playing of the violin, deserting it for echoes and sub oscillations alike. Calling upon the prowess of Rider Shafique, his harmonic toasting is being escorted by a forward-minded halftime groove in ‘Find The Way’. Topping the LP off with Sis’ excellence in telling a story through song on a hypnotic instrumental. The nature of last tunes is often powerful, serving to concede with an explosion, appropriate of the session – as is the case with ‘Surfacing’ closing off the monumental EP with visceral lead movements, setting the tone alongside driving drums and one more murderous bassline, sure of receiving countless rewinds in the near future. Encompassing a plethora of current Roots- Dub- and Steppa- influenced styles, Moonshine’s next LP installment is sure to be received for what it is: a definitive, quality expedition of what’s firing up dance floors around the globe.

We are extremely happy to welcome yet another talented crew from Italy in the Moonshine family. D-Operation Drop is a project born in 2010 thanks to the encounter of 5 university students wich found themselves sharing the same house and more importantly, love for music (In 2013 Zeemo joins the Crew, modifying the formation from 5 to 6 elements).
After a couple of early collaborations, almost casual, Uniradio Cesena gives to D-Operation Drop the chance to lay the foundations of an underground music program on air twice a week. Thanks to this experience the group officially finds its frame and looks forward to its new goals such as producing, dj'ing and vj'ing. To date D-Operation Drop, after almost seven years of experience, has received support from Artists like J:Kenzo, Distance, N-Type, Icicle, Radikal Guru & many others. Releasing music with notable labels such as Lion Charge, Artikal Music UK, Subaltern and now Moonshine Recordings.
