This time I want to share with you an artist that I mentioned before but as MadZen and now under his other moniker MDZN (almost the same right… but without vowels) this is for his electronic techno/ambient project.
Last week he debuts with this single called MAZE a “mesmerizing tune easy to enjoy” quote my own words in his SoundCloud. Also, I have to say that this track invites you to have a fun cool drink and move to the beat… Is it just me? What do you think? A perfect tune for a lounge bar or a dinner with friends. You can check out his YouTube channel and heres the track.
And today he’s back again with Outta This (This World)
Another enjoyable track just in time to enjoy this weekend with red light talking about México City and the pandemic situation that it’s getting worst, in fact, this shi**y scenario avoid me to join our family for this Holidays.
Askin MadZen where the inspiration for this track comes from he replied: “I was inspired y the effect the low frequencies have on us, by the warm feeling they can heave and at the same time in the feeling of spiritual connection that you can come to have almost until you reach an ecstasy out of the body…” Deep s**t my friends, can you feel it? Listen to this track and make your own opinion.

We were fortunate to have an in-depth interview with LoneMoon about her just-released AOTY contender kit@Nai (pronounced kitanai like dirty in Japanese). Here’s what’s up.
This album came largely in part from a bad year for LoneMoon, a year full of people bringing her down, some deceptively shallow relationships, and to paraphrase in my own words… haters in general. From the ashes of getting burnt left and right this year, LoneMoon was able to capture her most emotionally sincere and triumphant sound yet on her stunner of an album. This brings us to the provocative cover of the album, which shows Luna (LoneMoon) herself riding on the bodybags of the haters. You can really hear that emotion on Luna’s self-proclaimed favorite on the album, brainleZz2:
We go into more detail here, and also discuss the importance of artists being able to separate their self-worth from their body of work:
Luna is based in Oklahoma where she was born, but lived and grew up in Japan for ten years, which significantly influences her work. A conversation about Luna’s other influences led us to her future aspiration of opening up even more than she has on this soul-bearing album, to let her deepest and most painful emotions show in her art, even if the process might be a lonely one.
Here’s me being exposed for not knowing anything about sailor moon, plus the introduction to our other two interview participants:
On top of discussing two of my favorite tracks on the album, 1_n1Te and iLy, which we covered a few days ago, Luna was also kind enough to impart some of her wisdom onto us in terms of up and coming acts to watch out for:
^and this track features Black Dresses, no less!
Hear about LoneMoon’s favorite artist of all time, which non-music artist she would most like to collaborate with, and which artist she would listen to if she were stranded on a desert island for 24 hours straight (which I responded to with an emphatic “no way”) here:
