Sekuoia / Rain Dog - Finest Ego: Faces 12" Series Volume 3
Project: Mooncircle & Finest Ego have teamed up to establish a fresh new 12” producer series, entitled “Faces”. On every edition, you will find two different producers. Respectively, each producer will have their own record-side and unique cover artwork by the aspiring Bioniq, known for his surrealistic portraits, blending humans and technology.

Faces number three will invite the two young producers Sekouia and Rain Dog to share sides on this disc and expose their musical crafts. Coming from Denmark and the UK, respectively, they are with certainty looking forward to long-lasting succesful careers. What they share is a an intrinsic feel for tiny musical details which give their music an intimate feel to keep the listener mesmerized for ages. On this record they experiment with different sounds and tempos to create a dynamic collection of unique compositions that congregate an EP of colourful, low slung and ambient tunes or simply ‘chocolatefudgebrownieplasticmusic‘.

Born in Düsseldorf, Germany and grown up in Detroit, Sekuoia is a project by the 19-year old danish producer Patrick Alexander Bech Madsen. His music, based on guitar melodies, deep bass, organic beats, and chopped and screwed vocal samples, is a take on various genres and he is best described as an experimental electronica producer. His debut EP “Trips“ was released in December last year.

Having originally studied as an artist, newcomer Rain Dog has spent the last couple of years experimenting with production software, building speakers, composing music for indie shorts and making beats out of various small bedrooms scattered across the north of England. Recently he has settled in London and with a release on Echodub‘s imprint, Cut and a track featured on Project: Mooncirlce‘s 10th anniversary box LP, he continues to develop his lowslung melodic compositions.

Project: Mooncircle /
Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle is an official label from It was founded in 2002 by Gordon Gieseking and is specializing in the conjunction between electronic and organic music. Being interested in music from his earliest childhood on, it eventually became more than just a passion to him. The label, at first envisaged as a compilation project only, found the perfect partner with Thomas Ulrich and his mail-order in 2004, later being joined by Jinna Morocha from Moscow. This led the way for the first instrumental and vocal solo releases by such artists as Mr Cooper, 40 Winks, CYNE, Jahbitat, John Robinson, MF Doom, Lambent, Lewis Parker, Non of Shadowhuntaz, Graciela Maria, Strand, Robot Koch, Pavel Dovgal, Ta-Ku, Mika Gao, Onra, Obba Supa, fLako, Sina., 1000 Names, DZA, Krts, Long Arm or Glen Porter. In 2009 the sub-label Project: Squared, run by Paul Cooper and Peter Schachmann, two long-standing companions and co-workers, was founded. Project: Squared releases mainly Dubstep and Techno 12” records from such artists as Asusu, Furesshu, AnD, L-OW, Tom Diccico, Shifted and others. Another sub-label, Finest Ego, was added in 2010. Run by Malte Tarnow, its aim is to consolidate the versatility of instrumental beats, glitch or wonky and anything in between or beyond. The outcome are compilations with such producers as Daisuke Tanabe, Isaac Aesili, Om Unit, Lapalux, RLP, ichiro_, Himuro Yoshiteru, Pixelord, Monky, Christoph El Truento, and various others. The work of illustrators and graphic designers such as Bioniq, Dan May, Iain McArthur, Ima One, LNY, Gordon, 44 Flavours, La Mano Fria, and The Binh create images that accompany the acoustic spaces. Project: Mooncircle with its various producers & vocalist shall be an interesting experience for anyone looking for the extraordinary.

Es sind diese Nächte, verregnet und grau, in denen die Endorphine einer seltsam trockenen Gefühlsparallele aus Lethargie und Melancholie gewichen sind. Diese Nächte an denen man lieber alleine bist, dich weder wirklich wach noch müde, in sein Bett legt, in den nächsten Stunden auf Schwarz/weiß-Modus schaltet und die Zeit still stehen lässt. Die EP »Finest Ego: Faces Vol.3« aus der »Finest Ego: Faces« Reihe von Sekuoia und Rain Dog ist der Soundtrack für solche Nächte. Musik und Moment verschmelzen miteinander, werden zu einem parabiotischem Eins. Man gibt sich dem nüchternen Rausch der Melancholie hin und verliert sich in der Musik. Die atmosphärisch gehauten Vocal-Sample von »Disappear« fliegen vorbei wie die Licht-Schattenspiele, die von vorbeifahrenden Autos an die graue Zimmerdecke geworfen werden. Das Instrumental lässt es regnen während man selbst langsam beginnt die Möbel um sich herum als dunkle Gestalten wahr zu nehmen. Die Beats fließen nacheinander in einer wundervoll meditativen Stetigkeit zwischen dumpfen Xylophonklängen bei »Like I Wasn’t Here« oder Mönch-ähnlichem Chorgesangt bei »N e e ds e«. Man kann die feuchte Kälte von Dänemark und England, der Wohnorte der beiden Produzenten, spüren. Beide Künstler harmonieren wunderschön miteinander und lassen den Übergang von Sekuoia zu Raindog fast unbemerkt. Dennoch zeigt sich Raindog weniger elegisch, dafür mehr statisch elektronisch. Über »Writers Block« flimmert schliesslich ein Hauch von unbeschwerter Leichtigkeit und »Keep Me« streut final eine positive hochenergetische Dynamik, die die Regenwolken auflöst und durch den Vocal-Sample die Sonne wieder aufgehen lässt.
