In the three years since Moon Rock Volume 1 came out, interest and attention in ambient and cosmic music has broadened and deepened. What began as a experiment in how chill out might sound as reimagined by traditionally dancefloor oriented producers has found an incredible community of listeners and creators.
With Moon Rock Volume 4, Throne of Blood is once again gazing upwards and looking inwards as we collect our biggest survey of kosmische sounds. Featuring contributions from close friends and label contributors (Gilb’r, Black Deer, Man Power), respected members of the electronic underground with no prior connection to the label (Moscoman, Jabru, Brain Machine, Vactrol Park, MA Spaventi, Cass. & Stijn Hüwels, Danny Passarella, Maximilian Akiba, Craig Bratley, Not Ssandoz, Aris Kindt), members of the TOB family (Steve Cobby, Maxime Pasquier, Linus Booth’s new Warden CA project), and some surprises as well (Cale Parks, former drummer of indie rock band Yeasayer), Moon Rock Volume 4 is a soundtrack for excursions beyond the Ultraworld.
Spread over three LPs, Moon Rock Volume 4 was conceived in sides; six distinct sets of music that move through a range of styles and sounds, from crystalline arpeggios to cosmic ambience and darker droning noise. Intended to capture nothing beyond our own expansive interest in deeply psychedelic music for not dancing, Moon Rock Volume 4 is a further step out of the big room dance floors Throne of Blood is known for fuelling thanks to releases from dance music fixtures like Bicep, Daniel Avery, Waze & Odyssey, and PBR Streetgang.
