Moonshaped - Drum ’n’ Bass Dubstep Techno Electro Big Beat Live Act in Baden

Moonshaped Short Info

The trio (dr, b, synth) from Baden (CH) is committed to electronic dance music. In the band's nearly 15-year history, four albums have been released, countless concerts have been played and the band kept on fiddling with sounds and styles. Today the music oscillates between drum'n'bass, dubstep, electro and big beat.

The band started in 2003 as a rebellious final project of Elias for the jazz school. Even crafted, raw and uncouth 'techno' (whatever you mean by that) made the experts look a bit perplexed... but the main thing was a lot of fun. The trio then worked on their sound and moved closer to the drum'n'bass with the change on drum in 2006. With their second studio album 'raw' in 2011 they won the SUISA M4Music Award in the category 'Electronic'. Dubbed by the zeitgeist, dubstep elements increasingly flowed into the new compositions. In early 2013, a selection of three tracks was digitally released as a live bandroom session.
After 2 years of (almost) hibernation, with the release of their EP 'Phase of the Moon' (which again celebrates the various subgenres of drum'n'bass) the group started into 2018 and is now exploring new territory - be it stylistic or with their live performance. With the tracks that are currently being developed, they encounter almost all other aspects of electronic dance music. In November the second EP this year (containing a selection of those tracks) will be released.

The sound is defined by the live setting: The raw sound of synthesizer and bass(effect) merges with static loops from the sequencer and driving beats of the drums. This sounds, with style-styling accessories, unadulterated. The bass fluctuates between stomach-grooving grooves and screaming dubstep signals. The incisive melodies and hooklines, spherical flats and the sometimes wild, then playful effects of the synthesizer station give the songs their face.

With the rhythm of the dancefloor and the energetic strength of a stadium band, nobody stands still: Moonshaped tears off clubs and blows away festivals.
