Long regarded as Russia's foremost electronic music duo, put simply Moonbeam create music
unlike anyone else on the planet. Following 2009's 'Around The World', 'The Secret' (2011) and
the Original Soundtrack to their 2013 feature-length movie 'The Random', Moonbeam's fourth
international album 'Atom' follows in the Khvaleev brothers' grand tradition of the untraditional.
'Atom' is another tight-as-they-come, 10-track compression of leading-edge sounds & studio
techniques that determinedly slalom around block-terminology & categorization. Drawing on a
flourishing home-grown talent pool of singer/songwriters - Avis Vox, Eva Pavlova, Irina Makosh,
Aelyn, Sopheary & Deniz Reno among them, they further lend the otherworldly ether &
atmosphere that mark the Khvaleevs extraordinary sound.
So prepare to take another trip to electronic music's otherside, as Black Hole Recordings once
again proudly present the extraordinary long-playing ethereal-ism of Moonbeam.
Mood house? Dream-prog? Dark-trance? Or just straight deep, dark, moody & dreamy
everything â€“ thereâ€™s no one more averse to classifying what they do in the studio than
Moonbeam themselves. Within â€˜Atomâ€™s opening 5 minutes, that â€˜off-pisteâ€™ nature is put into the
sharpest of perspectives. Engaging sounds & FX from the deep-space recesses of their studio
boxes, â€˜Atomâ€™s title track begins to outline Moonbeamâ€™s next album mission.
