Im Tanzrausch

NEWS: Fred und Luna to release new EP “Im Tanzrausch” on Compost Records, directly following the album “Im Tiefenrausch”, also on Compost Records, and previous outings on Frank Wiedemann’s label Bigamo, JD Twitch’s label Optimo Music and on Innervisions “Im Tanzrausch” is step 2 of Fred und Luna’s joint venture with Compost Records. In direct connection to their mesmerizing album “Im Tiefenrausch” Fred und Luna come up with four hypnotic and tribal Elektrokraut/Krautelektro pieces ready to find their way to the dancefloor. The music of Fred und Luna has always been a combination and an interplay of both listening and danceable sound. On their upcoming release “Im Tanzrausch” they are focussing on repetitive, dancefloor-ready beats, not losing sight of their love for beautiful melodies, electronic soundscapes and their krautish background. Quotes about the “Im Tiefenrausch” album: “Well worth investigating.” DJ Mag “[...] a riveting ride through the sonic machinations of Buchmüller’s vivid mind.” The Vinyl Factory “[…] a steady groove overlaid with cool blue chords, easygoing vocals and a funky sense of melody.” Resident Advisor “Really like this album a lot!” Laurent Garnier “Super excited this is coming out.” JD Twitch/Optimo Music “Well. This is rather lovely. Like it a lot.” Bill Brewster/DJ History “Loving this. Nichtmusikalische Stadt Unter Schritten especially, absolutely beguiling.“ Aaron Levitt/Stamp The Wax "Beautiful album! Covers wide spectrum of sounds and atmospheres" Gilles Wassermann/Fiction Lab

Fred und Luna’s dance music history Fred und Luna’s dance music history started in 2016 with their later to become an underground dancefloor hit “Monotonikum”, first released on Optimo Music and appearing on Fabric 100 compilation end of 2018. The same year Innervisions released a Prins Thomas remix of Fred und Luna’s “Im Klanggarten” on their Secret Weapons series (Secret Weapons 8). After the release of their highly acclaimed debut album “Im Klanggarten” on Frank Wiedemann’s then newly founded label Bigamo, Fred und Luna started doing dancefloor-ready remixes, amongst others for Connaisseur Recordings, Yotanka (PIAS), Le Temps Perdu and Depth Records, followed by a collaboration with Trikk on his dance album “Mundo Ritual” (Innervisions) and with Achim Treu (Der Plan, Dauerfisch, UFO Hawaii). Their upcoming dancefloor release “Im Tanzrausch”, produced by Jan Krause (Beanfield) will be released 22 March 2019 on Compost Records. Who are Fred und Luna? “Fred und Luna” are two mannequins living in a fashion boutique in Karlsruhe, Germany. They serve as muse for musician, lector, poet and photo/video maker Rainer Buchmüller. Inspired by his doll friends and his love for German electronic music of the past decades, Rainer Buchmüller under the alias “Fred und Luna” produces his self-created genres Elektrokraut and Krautelektro: both a modern combination of repetitive rhythms, beautiful melodies, electronic soundscapes and elements from the Krautrock era. Under the name of “Ariston Baton” Rainer Buchmüller also writes and performs sound poems and concrete poetry. On live events and especially on exhibitions Ariston Baton is joining “Fred und Luna” and Rainer Buchmüller’s third identity “Vizudaru Nono”, who is contributing video and photo projections. Together they form the so called “Equipe Nadaphysique”. A recent exhibition featuring all three named personalities took place end of October 2018 at Rockomotives Festival, Vendôme/France. On tour with Fred und Luna (The Luna principle) On live shows, Fred und Luna are represented by Rainer Buchmüller as FRED and by a LUNA spontaneously chosen from local musicians, friends or someone from the audience, making every show a surprise and a unique performance. Previous Lunas include keyboard players, drummers, DJs, guitarists, rappers, poets, saxophonists, trumpeters, violinists, complete bands, a musical saw player, an opera singer and many more. Watch out: The next Luna could be you!
