Matthias Tanzmann Announces 15 Years of Moon Harbour Tour
Not many labels make it to release number 15, let alone YEAR 15! But that’s exactly the milestone the Moon Harbour family is celebrating this year with three amazing compilations available at Traxsource.
Headed up by esteemed producer and Circoloco/DC10 Ibiza resident Matthias Tanzmann and manager André Quaas, the Leipzig based label has managed to last so long in the game by always being one step ahead of the game. Celebrated for it’s diverse output, from tech house to minimal to deeper club sounds, the label’s ever evolving roster of artists is like a veritable who’s who of the contemporary dance scene.
Looking back at the development of the label, Matthias Tanzmann said -
“I was still pretty young when we started the label in 2000, so we have all grown up together for 15 years now. Moon Harbour is like my child. I am happy many artists joined the family or became good friends and that the label has become a home for all of us.”
Next to core family members and label acts like Luna City Express, Sable Sheep, Marco Faraone, Sven Tasnadi, Dan Drastic and the boss himself are new school talents and carefully A&R’ed artists like Adam Port, Re.You, Ekkohaus, wAFF, Cuartero, Steve Lawler, DJ T., Chris Wood & Meat, Butch and Detlef.
The label has built up an exceptional catalogue of music, with no less than 100 EPs, 5 artist albums and 10 label compilations. Moon Harbour tracks not only make dance floors move, but stay long in the memory thanks to their originality. This has been proven by big hits such as Sable Sheep’s “Upon Burning Skies”, the summer hit of 2013, Santos’ “Hold Home”, but also Matthias Tanzmann’s “Bulldozer” and his remix of Marlow & Delhia’s “Movin” back in 2006, which took Moon Harbour to the next level in terms of international awareness.
Thanks to the reputation of the label, Moon Harbour’s label showcases are a solid addition to globally acknowledged festivals and events such as the Miami Music Week, Sónar week in Barcelona, the Amsterdam Dance Event and at various places in Ibiza, just to name a few.
Their monthly Moon Harbour Radio show, hosted by Dan Drastic, has now clocked up more than 60 episodes and is available as a podcast at iTunes, Soundcloud and Play.fm, as well as being broadcast through various international radio stations such as Ibiza Sonica. It has firmly established itself with fans as a reliable source of new music and information from the Moon Harbour label and it’s artists.
To celebrate all this, there will be a Moon Harbour world tour which kicks off at the Sónar week in Barcelona. Check out the anniversary compilations on Traxsource with exclusive tracks by Moon Harbour artists and friends, as well as re-releases of their most successful tracks over the last 15 years.
The label are now quite rightly reaching legendary status, but Moon Harbour and its ever evolving family are still very much lead from the front.
