Project Mooncircle’s recent undertaking is one of an epic sonic journey. The sounds of Kidkanevil and Daisuke Tanabe create a perplexing fictional universe waiting to be exposed beyond the grooves of an orange colored double vinyl release due out on November 2, 2012.
The debut collab between the UK and Japan based artists entitled Kidsuke incorporates a large selection of sound generating toys and instruments that each carry their own unique personalities. The characters develop as the sound canvas unfolds and it isn’t difficult to envision a warm and colorful reality caught between ours and a 2D 8 bit video game.
The project is the perfect marriage between Kidkanevil’s largely 8bit influenced productions and the organic, atmospheric, mind melting experiments found within Daisuke Tanabe’s recordings. The common ground is the heavy beat scene influenced rhythm that easily transports the listener to a familiar haven. From SGstep, a track that seems to be taken straight from the beat archives of Timbaland to the hazy head nodder MoOoOoOn which seems to be caught somewhere between the borderline of lounge and danceable, the entire album connects to become the embodiment of a fantasy saga soundtrack depicting the journeys of a hero in search of his and/or her next adventure. Listen to a preview of the album below.
