In the band's 15-year history, five 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, big beat and electro. In constant change Moonshaped arrives on stage where nobody can stand still - energetically they electrify the audience and ignite the dance fire.
The band started in 2003 as a rebellious final project of Elias for the jazz school. Even crafted and blunt 'techno' (whatever that means) made the experts look a bit perplexed... 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'.
After two years of (almost) hibernation, Moonshaped released two EPs in 2018. While on 'Phase of the Moon' (January 2018), once again the various subgenres of drum'n'bass were celebrated, with their second release 'Pool' (November 2018), the band flies far out to other spheres of electronic dance music: From electro to dub(step) to big beat... the journey even includes a side glance to the roots of electronical music in the 80s. With the latest, unreleased tracks, the trip goes on - not only in terms of musical styles, but also in terms of performance and live show...
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. 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 Moonshaped tears off clubs and blows away festivals!
