Project: Mooncircle (Record label)
Project: Mooncircle is a Berlin-based record label, founded in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking and specializing in combining hip hop and electronic music. Since his early adolescence Gieseking has been passionate about hip hop culture. He moved to the United States where he worked as an intern for small but nice record labels in Miami, Florida. Back in Germany he decided to found his own label and found the right partner in Thomas Ulrich and his mailorder hhv.de. Gieseking started off with signing some artists he knew from his time spent in the US. Step by step the roaster was extended and improved. Till this day more than 90 records have been released on Project: Mooncircle. In 2009 the sublabel Project: Squared has been founded. It is run by Paul Cooper, a companion and employee of PMC. Project: Squared focusses on the release of 12 Inches of dubstep and techno. In 2010 another sub label has been added: Finest Ego tries to unite the diversity of the worldwide beatmaker movement. Always looking for brand new progressions in Urban music and deep-rooted in hip hop culture at the same time, Project: Mooncircle is one of the most credible homes to beat-based music.

Sweatson Klank
The Crucial Question
With “You, Me, Temporary” Thomas Wilson has just released his magnum opus. On six vinyl sides he develops his romantic notions of love and lined them musically with a well-balanced mix of R’n’B, soul and sophisticated beats. Wilson has been working for a long time on this balance. In terms of beats music in Los Angeles, he is a pioneer. For this fact we aks him just one question, no frills.

Latest with his last album, The Mesektet, fLako makes clear that he will not stand still artistically. Instead he is reinventing itself again and again. His recently released EP Carving Away The Clay is a further testimony of becoming. We met the producer in Vienna to talk about making music, reincarnation, schizophrenia, and about who actually is Dirg Gerner.

Sweatson Klank
You, Me, Temporary
Fucking and fighting always works. Sweatson Klank knows that all too well, even though »You, Me, Temporary« has even more to offer. Convincingly so.

KRTS
The Dread Of An Unknown Evil
Even though KRTS clearly stands in a beatmaker-tradition connected to an intellectual type of music, this record is primarily about moods and feelings.

Kidsuke
Fantastic things are happening on the collab-album by Kidkanevil and Daisuke Tanabe – and they are only a dream away! Almost as good as a ride on the cat-bus!

Sweatson Klank
Elevate Me EP
On his first EP for Project: Mooncircle, Sweatson Klank can’t quite make up his mind between British club-sound and American beat-arts.

Robot Koch
The Other Side
The Other Side by producer Robot Koch is presenting itself in a calmer, even contemplative manner. Luckily, he still works with the tried and tested interaction of melodies and rhythm.

Long Arm
The Branches
Thoughtful, sometimes melancholy, dreamily melodious: Beat-maker Long Arm from Russia has created an album almost impossible to beat in its homogeneity.
