Lunas Short Info

There is a good number of reasons why especially adolescents and twenty-somethings like to travel all around Europe and, ultimately, the globe. First, we are lucky enough to live in a world that knows only few boundaries. Second, we are curious and like to explore. We’re all in for adventures. So we go and visit new places, meet new faces, eventually getting to know much more about our own selves. We want life like that, believe in Europe and a united, peaceful world.

Not only has the very idea of travelling been a popular motif in literature from its very beginning, but it can also be traced throughout the history of electronic music. Young producer Marvin Mauelshagen aka Lunas knows about the magic and possibilities of travelling and connecting. When he first came up with the idea to create electronic music he decided to write the songs for his debut EP while being abroad. ‘The majority of the songs was written in Sydney, Melbourne, and Indonesia in cafés, airplanes, or common rooms of hostels’, says Marvin. Although he collected manifold impressions on his journey, the debut EP Dive, released in autumn last year, sounds astonishingly homogenous and consistent. Mavericks, the record’s lead single, is characteristic for the EP’s exploration of a dreamy, electronic sound that results in detailed pop songs with catchy melodies you can either relax or dance to.

Lunas, who originates from North-Rhine Westphalia and lives close Düsseldorf, does not consider and restrict himself to being part of a so-called local scene. In his view, it’s all about the music, different places and connecting with people. This is also why, although he writes the complete music on his own, he decided to get in touch with other musicians for upcoming live shows. ‘I want to perform my songs with a band. Guitar, bass, sample pads and synthesisers will all be involved in my live set’, he explains. Only recently, Marvin finished off the preparation for his live set and is not curious to travel around the country to bring you his music.
