A chat with Freshmoon Recordings

Having seen this crew out in SXSW throw down some serious tunes on some beautiful 1200’s, a set composed of thick basslines and abstract rhythms, I hopped on the opportunity to catch a few words with them prior to their second appearance in Denver this evening.

Having the identity of an artist launch pad at madelife, we naturally gravitated to the idea of showcasing this label for their dedication to sound innovation and artist development.

Signing on some of the gems of the Texas underground, this label has some serious treats and heavy hitters in store for us this evening.

We got to chat with MoonDoctoR, who runs the label with support of FreshtillDef
