"Textural electronic sequences, live instrumentation and articulated beats melded perfectly with sophisticated melodic hooks: Moon Unit (Part 3 & 4) has arrived! 'Part 3' could best be described as being the black monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey draped with highly sophisticated light installations, oversized speakers and a giant smoke machine. It features the relentless sequencing, trademark of Mogg & Naudascher's productions, paired with muscular cello riffs played by Arthur Hornig, who represents a new breed of classical musicians, fearless of mingling with dancefloor compatible music. 'Part 4' features Irish newcomer Rosalind on vocals. It is part meditation, part nursery rhyme, the repetition of a simplistic lyrical motif combined with a huskily robust lead vocal, an elixir to the ear of the listener. The track resolves the dichotomy between being both soundscape, undulating dark and volatile, and popular song. The dynamics peak and trough, culminating in a fugato vocal arrangement, referencing the experimental edge of Laurie Anderson's 'O Superman' and the glacial austere beauty of Julie Cruise on Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks theme 'Falling.' Throughout the whole release various specific punctuation points raise the noise to ecstatic levels, in the manner to which fans have become accustomed ever since the critically acclaimed Moon Unit (Part 1 & 2) hit decks all around the world in 2007, receiving massive support by Carl Cox, DJ 3000 (UR), Laurent Garnier, Klaxons (who licensed Part 1 for their Bugged Out DJ mix), DFA and many more."
