Review: Moonbeam's Pavel Khvaleev & Vitaly Khvaleev present the latest single from their new project Mondstrahl. With the likes of Ferry Corsten, Tiesto, and Axwell championing each and every release for their main guise, it looks set to continue as 'Dark Face' is yet another fine moment from the Russian pair. The sound on offer here is less cinematic than previous, with an all-round darker and techno influenced feel. Proton enlist the services of Frenchman Loacs Erepams for the standout remix which has more musical elements than the Original, with Karl Johan from Sweden providing the final mix.
Review: Many producers in electronic music embrace the cinematic style of production, to create that Hollywood blockbuster epicness. It's tougher to achieve then think up of course, but one act who strike the right balance between surround-sound-drama and club sensibility is Moonbeam. "The Random"is a box-office triumph, packed with 22 tracks (which includes some much needed club mixes). It is wall-to-wall with their regular vocal cohorts. The pooled contributions of atypical singers like Avis Vox, Matvey Emerson, Leusin, Blackwite Feel and Aelyn all add much in the enigmatic and atmospheric departments. "Only You" feat Jacob A is instantly catchy, and other highlights (of the many) include "Madness", "Little Monster", and "You Win Me". Stunning album, which we have had on repeat since first listen.
