about

Following on from previous standout Inhouse compilations on Moon Harbour comes the latest instalment, Volume 6. This time with 12 exclusive tracks presented digitally and on a 2 x 12” vinyl pack, young label associate Marco Faraone has also gone to work on fusing them all together into one magical set that will be available upon release. The compilation features music from a range of producers – some have been with the label a while, some are newer recruits, but all of them fit in with the internationally acclaimed and renowned Moon Harbour aesthetic.

London based East End Dubs is first up with the suitably dubby ‘Maze,’ a slightly creepy track that bumps and grinds with lots of moody atmosphere. Stepping up through the gears with his bulky, bass driven loops is then Andrea Oliva who first appeared on the label back in 2013, whilst Dan Drastic and label boss Matthias Tanzmann team up again for their ‘Arcade’. It’s a spooky, stripped back house roller with a breezy groove at its heart.

New recruits Chris Wood & Meat, frequent collaborators from Frankfurt, then turbo charge the compilation with their excellently urgent and energetic track ‘So Far Away’, then former Minus staple Barem serves up a rattling, kinetic track full of percussive energy that will get arms flailing on the dancefloor. Next up, Marco Faraone goes deep with his deliciously driven ‘Mirror Coat’, featuring muttered vocals, spooky instrumentals and humid ambiance that really seeps its way into your soul.

Label regulars Luna City Express score a hit once more with the widescreen tech and spoken word consciousness of ‘Get High’, and fellow Moon Harbour staple Sven Tasnadi contributes the haunted late night house charms of ‘Special Places’. Sable Sheep is one of the label’s new generation of talents and gets all booty focussed and bouncy with his hard hitting jam ‘Pilgrim’, before the always on point Detlef then conjures up an intoxicating vibe with his feathery light, minimal house jam ‘Forenote’. Then come Paul C & Paolo Martini, who get all slinky, silky and seductive with their metallic, loopy ‘Speed Machine’ track and newest label member Cera Alba from the UK closes things down with his raw, hardcore deep house hitter ‘Voltage.’

This compilation once again proves that Moon Harbour evolves and experiments with subtle new sounds each year. What’s more, the label always stays true to their groove focussed; dancefloor aligned house sound whether they call upon experienced old stars or hot new protégés alike.
