In a dismal black-and- white movie or image one can still find the warmth of colors, especially as the whole environment heavily influences the perception of such a movie or image. These thoughts were unvariably accompanied with contemporary music and this Mix for Inverted Audio has been inspired by many black-and-white images. Founder and co-founder Gordon Gieseking tried to include plenty of releases from the labels Finest Ego, Project Squared and Project: Mooncircle because they are the food for his thoughts...
The mix includes Tom Diccico, Sei A, Lorca, Furesshu, Marco Effe, AnD, Makam, Dark Sky, Desolate, Kwala, Roof Light, Theo Bass, Robot Koch, John LaMonica, Pavel Dovgal, Good Paul, Empt, Bambooman, Sorrow, Rain Dog, MD, Brothomstates, Jack Dixon, Darling Farah, Submerse, and Sweatson Klank (aka Take).
We are very pleased to announce our guests for our upcoming Monthly Trip on the 19th of November! RBMA alumni kidkanevil (UK) and Amenta (Canada) will perform together at Panke, Berlin. Being the first time kidkanevil plays in Berlin and one of the rare occasions to see him and Amenta perform together, we can expect futuristic beats between avantgarde Electronica and organic HipHop in combination with Amenta's folky and soulful voice. Supporting DJs will be DJ Werd, Radio&Fernseh and Malte.
While kidkanevil, also being a member of Stateless (Ninja Tune), already released three albums, a remix album, plus various other projects on First Word Records (working together with such artists as Bonobo, Jehst, Lateef, Andreya Triana, Illum Sphere, Mr Thing, Natural Self, DJ Vadim & Yarah Bravo amongst many others), Amenta has just released her first very well received deput EP "Sacred Places" on the same label. However, in her music-career she has already worked with such prolific producers as Blue Daisy, Mau’Lin, fLako, kidKanevil, Om Unit, Clinic, Lost Twin and Throwing Snow, most of whom can also be found on her EP.

fLako "Carving Away The Clay" (10 Inch - Project: Mooncircle / hhv.de, 2011)
'Carving Away The Clay' impresses upon the idea of an ongoing process in which raw material is stripped off of anything superfluous or impeding until the essential parts of ourselves are exposed. It is a never ending process of striving for perfection in all areas of life.
Sina. "From Love To Dust" with Kelpe, Soosh & Gards From KC (12 Inch - Project: Mooncircle / hhv.de, 2011)
"From Love To Dust" is a two side EP of Barry Gordon, Ireland / UK based producer. He grew up listening to classic rock like Led Zeppelin & Rolling Stones and played in several bands. Barry fell in love with hip-hop after hearing Wu - Tang Clan for the first time, and started making music as Sina. in 2009. He owns and plays many different music instruments and has got a wide range of music influences, anything from blues and folk, to ambient and hip - hop.
The 6 track EP, set to drop in November, bleeds creativity, with influences from all aspects of music being incorporated in the works of Sina. He lets you submerge, full body, into impeccably produced, brittle clean sound with amazing groove control, touching and emotional. Thus, From Love To Dust never bores and features remixes of Switzerland rising star producer Gards From KC, UK beat smith Kelpe, and UK-based producer Soosh, who has had a collab with Gards From KC for Project: Mooncircle earlier this year.

Am 14. Oktober wird mit dem Russen Long Arm einer der talentiertesten jungen Produzenten im Bereich des abstrakten Instrumental-HipHop im Panke in Berlin spielen. Sein auf Project: Mooncircle veröffentlichtes Debüt-Album "The Branches“ fand Platz in Sendungen von Mary Anne Hobbs (XFM), sowie in Gilles Petersons "All Winners" Sendung auf BBC Radio 1, seiner momentanen, persönlichen Bestenliste des Jahres 2011. Wer sich die Mühe macht und einmal nach Videos von Live Auftritten des Orenburgers sucht, wird schnell bemerken, dass es der studierte Jazz-Pianist schafft eine Klangatmosphäre zu erschaffen, wie man sie sonst nur von einem kompletten Jazzorchester inklusive Drum-Section erwarten würde. Ende September veröffentlicht Long Arm zusätzlich sein Nachfolgewerk "Organic", eine Zusammenstellung neuer und bisher unveröffentlichter Songs sowie Remix Versionen von Daisuke Tanabe, Krts und FiJi & Eugenia Peters auf Project: Mooncircle. Begleitet wird Long Arm von Graciela Maria (Mexiko), die ebenfalls auf "Organic“ vertreten sein wird, Sneaky (Fingathing / Ninja Tune), V. Raeter (Ecke Prinz / Spoken View), Gordon Gieseking (Project Squared / Finest Ego / PMC) sowie Jinna Morocha, einer jungen russischen Labelmacherin von Project: Mooncircle, die jetzt in Berlin lebt.
