New release announcement
In 2023, Moonbeam is set to release a collection of eight songs inspired by the archangels, a common myth found in many of the world’s major religions. This unique approach aims to promote unity and emphasize the shared beliefs and backgrounds of religions and civilizations, as a message of peace and shared ancient believes.
The first release, Azrael, dropped in March to great acclaim. This infectious track, inspired by the archangel of death, entranced every partygoer and ignited shockwaves through the dancefloor.
Next up is Gabriel, set for release in May. Inspired by the archangel of revelation, this track is meant to bring light and inspiration into our lives, in contrast to the darker tones of Azrael.
Following that will be Michael, inspired by the archangel known as the adversary. This track will take you on a journey of overcoming injustice towards children and reminding us of the strength within us to overcome any challenge.
Through the coming months, Moonbeam will release 5 more tracks, aiming to promote unity, as a message of peace, inviting us to celebrate the rich and diverse cultural heritage that unites us all. Get ready to experience a thrilling journey of sound and energy that will uplift your spirit, move your body, and bring you closer to the world and each other.
Moonbeam is a Russian electronic music project founded by brothers Vitaly and Pavel Khvaleev in 2003. Over the years, they have become one of the most influential and respected acts in the electronic music scene, with a reputation for producing innovative and eclectic sounds.
