about

Welcome to „Industrie & Zärtlichkeit“, the raw, quirky yet emotional debut album from Moon! Although the Berlin-based duo is revered for dancefloor bangers such as „Ze power”, Johannes Albert and Johannes Paluka (better known as Iron Curtis) have put much effort into making this album a true listening experience without sacrificing their roots in House Music.
„Industrie & Zärtlichkeit“ (which translates into „Industry & Tenderness“) effortlessly achieves what is claimed in its title, namely a fusion of seemingly disparate elements: the rough and the smooth, dirty beats and soothing harmonies, bizarre sounds and comforting chords. The title track is a fine example of this perfectly-dosed blend with its detuned strings that glide over a crisp electro beat and an infectious melody which would make Kraftwerk proud. “Cafe Del Landwehrkanal” is a lighthearted and kinky gem while „Light Of Virtue“ combines warm synth pads (Detroit is not far) with dusty drums and an acid bassline. “MFB Nights” and “Machine Rhythm Tomorrow” are also illustrations of the duo's undeniable savoir-faire, with the former celebrating garage classics thanks to its cheeky vocal sample and gorgeous rhodes chords while the latter plays out as a dedication to the early 90's, a time when people didn't care about genres and just dived in the novelty of electronic dance music.
But as we all know, there is a dark and secret side of the Moon, an aspect which is best expressed via the freaky organ chords of „Proto“ and its detuned melody. Not to mention the excellent ambient pieces „Fjordig“ or „The Bitter End“ which showcase the duo's ability to venture into uncharted territory.
All in all, “Industrie & Zärtlichkeit“ feels like drinking fresh orange juice gently sparkled with chilli... and it concludes flawlessly with two reworks that prolong the album's laidback yet assured vibe. First off is Black Spuma (Lauer of Tuff City Kids fame and Italian disco legend Fabrizio Mammarella) who rework the title track into a hands-in-the-air boogie monster that will definitely be a festival staple this summer. Finally, Lerosa emphasizes the deeper shade of the album's spectrum with an impressive new wave rework of „Appeal“.
