The 75th Mole album release is quite obviously not just another “Best Of…” compilation but presents brand-new mixes from well known tracks as well as new tracks of our Mole artists. On Mole 75 you can find for example songs from Naomi, Audio Lotion, nor elle, Alphawezen, De-Phazz, Q-Point, Yonderboi, Wax Tailor, The Lushlife Project, Airmate, Lemongrass, Marcel, Anima Sound System, Khoiba, moodorama, Calmstreet, Bassface Sascha, JFC aka Jean F. Cochois and Homegrown. Mole 75 embraces Pop for grown-ups and Drum n Bass, floating sound spaces and charming vocal arrangements, heavily blunting downbeats and funky bass lines. Mole stimulates all senses – not being typical is typical Mole! The task to define the Mole borders on sheer impossibility, as Mole manages to metamorphose into lmost anything without losing its distinctive identity. Mole moves in the realm of electronic music, so much for sure. Mole oscillates between the poles of abstraction and club suitability by consciously ranscending established genres or any kind of categorisation. The objective of Mole is to release good Music of true artists while generating positive vibes. Sounds banal, but hits the ull´s eye. Te artists and their music create an acoustic mosaic which is constantly reassembled but always remains recognisable. A paradox: although there is no typical Mole sound, you can immediately feel and sense the sound of Mole. The resolution to this paradox is anchored in the labels core ideas and the mission of the Mole artists. The mission of the artists can be found in their music with the music being their message. The core ideas of Mole include the determined willingness to foster its artists and to provide them with time and space to develop their message. Mole does not steal a glance on short-term success but has its eye on long-term building up. The resulting quality is the trademark of Mole. The whole thing is quite obviously an experiment: an open production process with unpredictable outcome – subjected to continuous control of ground-breaking potential and quality. But life in general can be seen as an experiment, can’t it? And does not nature create new forms every day? Mole is like life: incalculable, inexhaustible, multi-faceted, lustrous and prolific. Mole is constantly in motion and generates new formats. Mole is sound evolution. The quality of Mole music draws from its sensuousness. The music does not aim at superficial effects, is never trivial nor shallow but deep, pulsating, reviving, sensible, tolerant – and therefore outstanding. Mole has a smart surface and knows how to adorn itself with it. Mole invites you to take joy in the pleasures of life! Celebrate with Mole! Including a DVD with nine “Mole videos”. Here you can watch the Trailer.

On their previous albums “Basement Music” (1998) and “Music For Collapsing People” (2000), “Listen” (2003) and “Mystery in a cup of tea” (2005) they represented themselves as masters of the combination of different styles and as experts of musical trends. moodorama therefore has done diverse remixjobs for Czech, Marschmellows, Justin, Jimmy Cliff, Tower of Power or the French Télépopmusic. Founded 1998, their first TripHop/Downbeat Album „Basement Music“ was released and recieved rave reviews from Labels like Compost or Stereo Deluxe. For the highly acclaimed follow-up album „Music for collapsing people“ with bangin’ tracks like „Sinzing Sunset Boulevard“ (best 12inch sales figures for Stereo Deluxe rec. ever) or „Viama“ (also 12inch release), moodorama teamed up with the famous Label Stereo Deluxe. In 2002, Audiopharm/SPV contacted the moodorama-crew. Both parties decided to work together and consequently two albums were dropped out: „Listen“, a smart and homogenous concept album and “Mystery in a cup of tea”, an unusual discussion between material and music, more sharp-edged than the earlier album but nevertheless a suitable companion for all walks of life. Despite this versatility the album nevertheless pursues the characteristic style of moodorama. In 2006, moodorama found a new “Homenbase” at Mole Listening Pearls. The first release will be the new album called “My Name Is Madness”. The title, an amusing yet poignant name for an album that, with its beautiful songs sitting comfortably in between a nice arrangement of lounge, pop, electro, bossa, chillout and house, never actually sounds as mad as one would expect. But nevertheless: the joy to try out crazy ideas, the glee trying new techniques and the happiness when combining elements is shining through subliminally, making this a glistening listening experience. Creating that very ambience of relaxed moods that Moodorama are renouned for and which the listener can unbiassedly surrender to, everything is possible – and possibly a little mad. Be it the crunching shuffle beats and sailor’s choirs like diplayed in “Space Cowboy”, the loungy sophistication of a brass band right on the shores of “Summer’s Ocean” or the deep and sad vocals of “Even In Dreams” – there are neither limitations nor one simple stand point which makes this album so exiting. From “Novastar” to “Hot Lemonade”, the journey takes the listener from one end to the universe to the other, one minute drifting through time and space on sweet cocktail grooves, and the next already light years away, right on the dancefloor driving tracks like “The Journey”. Twists and turns included, the moments of surprise are wanted but never forced. Again working with many acclaimed musicians and singers, managed to win praised singer and songwriter Strangejah Cole to lend his dignified vocals for the track “Even In Dreams” who, in 1962, gave freed republic Jamaica the first Ska and Reggae songs ever. Further highlights: the vocals of King Banana frontman U-See and Cosmophon singer Michael Frank. All in all a very easy-to-digest, light-hearted and accomplished album with a that surprises and widens the horizon of the listener in a very pleasing way – a real enrichment for the label Mole Listening Pearls.
