Full Moon Mix: Millenial Dub

In the late 90s dub and electronica blended in most astonishing ways. This mix compiles some of our favourite tracks of this era that apply dub techniques to electronic music. The fact that seven out of the nine artists featured on this compilation are German, emphasizes that Germany was the epicentre of a phenomena that critics used to describe with tags like dubtronica and dubtechno. Starting in 1995, we’re slowly approaching the millenium.

New Moon Mix: In The Mood For Love

Valentine’s Day triggered the idea to compile some hopelessly romantic love songs. It took a few attempts to find the right balance between kitsch and deepness, and to elaborate a flow that brings ethereal and earthy sounds together. The result of our labours in the Moon Lagoon archives is an eclectic affair, ranging from outsider crooners, shoegaze trobadours and pop balladeers to reggae and soul legends.
