about

Physician by day, musician by night, Moonlighter makes his production debut after steadily holding down Rocksteady Disco labelmate duties. “Give Us Rain (Ah Mila)” begins the 12” beautifully, blending ethereal African samples with Moonlighter’s own melodic and percussive performance. “Kinematic” kicks off the flip on a more cosmic and tech-y tip, with bubbly synth stabs and drums. “A Certain Average Kind Of Normal Experience” closes out this opus with a massive peak hour bassline, emotive synthesis, and a vocal sample from everybody’s favorite UK philosopher. The Moonlighter EP is a culmination of his diverse production and digging ethos by blending the percussive with the melodic, the peak hour with the subdued, and the head with the heart.

“A very well thought out release, I love its originality and vibe, ‘A Certain Average Kind Of Normal Experience’ is amazing, Incredibly deep, a box squatter! (it will never leave my box!)”
-Atjazz [ARCo - UK]

“Fantastic amazing 100% full support <3 <3 <3” -Chrissy [Nite Owl Diner / Cool Ranch - US]

“This is sounding really nice! Lovely production and I especially like the vibe on ‘Certain Kind’. Solid release all in all!” -Jimpster [Freerange Records / Delusions of Grandeur - UK]

“Sounds great! ‘Give Us Rain’ has a perfect early or very late vibe. Love the broken jazzy feel of ‘Kinematic' too. Also inspired by (and can relate to) Moonlighter's 'moonlighting-life ;)!” -Marc Meistro [Sol Power All-Stars - US]

“What a lush EP full of diverse sounds. So much detail on the rhythms and melodies. I love it.” -Bamboozle aka Eli Soul Clap [Soul Clap Records / Crew Love - US]

“Moonlighter's obviously eclectic tastes come shining through on the entire EP. Using afro-beat inspirations, funk-driven synth leads, and uplifting chord progressions in a way you just don't hear that often. This will stay relevant far into the future. Another great release by RSD.” -Pontchartrain [Soul Clap Records / Whiskey Disco - US]

“Nice deep afro grooves on this one! Will support.” -JKriv [Razor-N-Tape / Deep&Disco - US]

“Beautiful! Things I would love to hear on a patio drinking rosé in the spring (if it ever comes).” -LadyMonix [Frizner Electric / Dirt Tech Reck - US]

“Really diggin' Give Us Rain ❤ Instantly puts me in a good mood. Nice vibes throughout!” -John Michael [The Patchouli Brothers / Beam Me Up Disco - CA]

“Especially like ‘Give Us Rain’. I could see the landscape. It is beautiful.” -Dazzle Drums [Japan]
