Project: Mooncircle – 10th Anniversary Compilation (2012)

Project: Mooncircle, as the name reveals, has been on a journey to the moon since day one, exploring the frontiers of music and art, always looking for new discoveries and giving a different perspective to look at the earth.

In it’s 10 year history the label has published roughly 100 releases by equally as many artists from all corners of this globe and, therefore, the selection of sounds on this compilation represents the development of the label from the past, present and going into the future.

Actual colors may vary’s “Best of 2011″ Post-Dubstep | Skweee | Electronic Pop

Even though we’re aware most people are following “Actual colors may vary” because of our photography features, we would like to share some of our favorite music in 2011 (although some tracks are from late 2010 and early 2012).

We would like to introduce you to a wide spectrum of electronic music that could be filed mostly under “Dubstep” even though this categorisation would be too general and ignore the fact that this postmodern genre mixes so many influences apart from Dub und 2-Step that it would better be called “Post-Dubstep” and even that would be misleading. Listen to young producers from Norway, Finland, USA, Belgium, Russia, Japan, Romania, UK, Brasil, Lithuania and Germany experimenting with new sound aesthetics that could be blueprints for future pop music.

In case you’re interested please follow Oliver’s and ACMV’s profile on Soundcloud and listen to even more of our favorites.

If you are annoyed that you have to start each track manually you can listen to an automatically playing list here.
