ILL Harmonics Vol.1 by Moonstarr

ILL Harmonics Vol.1

On this latest release, Moonstarr embarked on a series of late-night studio missions to explore the deep, moody regions of sound. Chopped breaks and dirty jazz loops are eschewed for synthesizers and drum machines to program the exploration into dark emotion and dissonance. Built upon the foundation created by steadfast pioneers like Mike Banks, Larry Heard, Shawn Rudiman, Purpose Maker and Drexcyia, and inspired by a conversation between Abacus and Marc Mac years earlier in which they discussed the need for vocals to permeate more techno music. Moonstarr continues the tradition and searches for the elusive 'C-Minus Particles' that disperse as quickly as they are created. On 'Monopoly', guest vocalist Tash sounds out a determined call for working-class justice overtop soaring synth lines, warm bass pulses and insistent rhythms. ILL Harmonics is part one in a series that will continue to travel the soundways in a complementary style to this release.

Feedback:

Shuya Okino (Kyoto Jazz Massive) “Monopoly is amazing... strong electronic soul music!”
Daedelus “The music is wonderful. I think it's the bee's knees!”
Marc Mac (4-Hero) “Dope”
Chris Vogado (ZeroDB)    “Awe inspiring”
Jwan Allen (Technoir Audio) “Devastating combo of NJ house vocal stylings with Canadian/Detroit tech-funk electronics”
