Traum V126 - Moonbeam - Distance

The sound of the New Wave band Bauhaus seems to make it's way into several releases nowadays.
We are not talking about samples but the dark romantic feeling of this period.
Moonbeam's track “Distance” carries this haunted and ghostly feeling of the 80ies, the chill of cold steel and rooms with little light from candles.
Sure it would not be a Moonbeam track if there were not the spine-tingling melodies which have always been the strength of their music.
New is their approach of slicing up a theme and starting with another... this is new school for sure!.
Also “The Underwater World” dedicates itself to the night... but slowly transforms, making its way into daylight. As sounds fly like “robotic bats”, big basslines will flood the track, cogs will turn, new sounds will uncurl... we see another magic track by the duo Moonbeam evolve here.
This tracks dives headlong into deep, dubbed techno, soaked in bass while at the same time unbelievable colourful melodies appear as friendly “invaders”.
This track is a masterpiece of a track and will be transformed into a visual piece of art by Moonbeam themselves, on the day of the release.
Last but not least “Run For Me “ is a sonic piece of Traum music that evokes Krautrocks best electronic avant-garde of the 70ies, to be incorporated in their own world... known best as “Moonbeam land”.
This track is a track for the late hours when windows allow a beam of light to dance on peoples heads.
The Kiev based Spartaque has become famous through his success in Russia and was voted as one of the top 3 Best Artists in Russia.
He has continuously climbed up the ladder and is now playing events such as Love Parade/Germany and performing with artist such as: Dandi & Ugo, Tocadisco, Ahmet Sendil, Umek, Citizen Kain, Popof and many more. His remix of "The Underwater World" is a euphoric and modern minimal-techno hymn showing his skills to rock big dance floors with passion.
Freska gives his debut with this remix and will release his first solo 12" on Traum in September.
His bouncy and modern "house" remix of "Distance" makes him a welcome artist for intimate situations and hip clubs around. Freska has recorded for prominent labels such as Stil vor Talent and Karate Club etc and is a candidate for the future.
