about

In the words of John Kelman (All About Jazz), Stephan Thelen's Moonjune debut "Fractal Guitar" was "not just a masterclass of 21st century guitar, but a true guitar masterpiece of the new millennium." This remix album contains remixes of four tracks from Fractal Guitar (including a remix of Urban Nightscape by Bill Laswell) plus three unreleased extra tracks. A 12" vinyl LP with the first three tracks can be pre-ordered now and will be shipped out around October 1st, 2019.
