In celebration of their tenth anniversary, German tech house imprint Moon Harbour Recordings will release a double-disc compilation this winter, featuring previously unreleased material alongside a mix by label boss Matthias Tanzmann.
Tanzmann founded Moon Harbour near the end of 1999 with his partner Andre Quaas. The original plan was to make platform mostly for Tanzmann's own releases, but within a few years the label had already brought in a raft of new producers like Daniel Stefanik, Krüger & Manowski and Luna City Express. The outfit expanded steadily from there, eventually prompting Tanzmann to launch a second imprint, Cargo Recordings. In terms of style, both labels emphasise modern house with lots of club potential—something Tanzmann developed an ear for in his years of DJing raucous parties like Circo Loco in Ibiza.
Ten Years of Moon Harbour showcases many of the outfit's core artists, from Moon Harbour as well as Cargo Edition. The first disc consists entirely of unmixed and unreleased tracks, while the second shows Tanzmann mixing up selections from the label's back catalog, harking all the way back to early cuts like Hakan Lidbo's "Overnight." The package will see release on double-vinyl as well as digitally and on CD.
