Monkeytown Records proudly presents the first full-length album by Germany's Siriusmo since 2008's Diskoding. Mosaik has been highly-anticipated, and Moritz Friedrich aka Siriusmo has finally found the time and courage to sit down and complete the project. Siriusmo has been around for about a decade, releasing a dozen singles and EPs on various Berlin-based record labels and remixing names like Scissor Sisters, Gossip, Chikinki, Simian Mobile Disco, Boys Noize, Digitalism, Chromeo, A-Trak, Munk and many others. Siriusmo, who grew up with Stevie Wonder, The Beatles and hip-hop, played organ in a '70s-inspired band, and is active as a graffiti artist, ghost-painter and illustrator. Mosaik reflects all the different aspects of his personality and strongly shows his interest in various art forms and various kinds of music. For Moritz, the sound of Siriusmo should be futuristic -- not like our current understanding of the future, but more like the future was painted in the '70s -- exaggerated, improvisational, colorful, sometimes trashy, but never cheap, extravagant and open-minded.
