The new album from the Hungarian beat-maker with mop and broom is out now! After a 13-year period Marcel has returned to Mole Listening Pearls the home of his first successful releases Viginti etduo and Cirrus Maximus. Although his new LP called Petting.Soul.Dance. is almost nonidentical with the older ones somehow it has the signature of Marcel. Because this album is the imprint of an artist's long time maturation.
Out Now! "Life Is Waiting For You" is the third longplayer of Portugals Electroswing Sensation The Casino Royal. The album is fusing again many musical genres like orIginal 60s lounge and swing styles with contemporary production techniques including house and EDM. All is wrapped up in wonderful light songwriting and chilled tuning. Perfect to party, dance and dream "Life Is Waiting For You" stands for Portugals deep folk tradition within the perfect link to modern electronic european, south- and latinamerican music."
The song Sublime (nominated for the 2014 IPMA Casal Garcia People's Choice award) is the first single, Mourah releases on Mole Listening Pearls. The son of two music-loving parents was born in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, in the heat of summer. At the age of five he joined his parents in Geneva, Switzerland, where they had emigrated two years earlier. Brought up on jazz and classical music, instruments, notes and melody, became a deeply influential part of his world from early childhood. At the age of ten he attended his first music classes at the conservatoire, where it was soon clear he would be one to follow autodidact path. His debut album was released in Portugal (2005). The album was praised by critics and considered to be one of the best of the year. In late 2011 he began to develop his ideas on the forthcoming album Kardia. It is expected to be released in 2015 on Mole Listening Pearls.
Naomi’s classic Pappelallee celebrates its 10th birthday on February 23rd, 2014. The Berlin duo (Bernd Lechler and Nico Tobias) delivered their sophomore album in 2004, a collection of personal and charming songs halfway between pop and sophisticated electronic music.
The warm sound makes the album feel familiar even at first listening. When diving deeper into Naomi’s universe you soon discover a great variety of influences and contrasting elements. The songs are intense, the sounds and arrangements are compact and very distinctive. Pappelallee is sometimes bizarre but always catchy, profound but highly accessible, melancholic but consoling, while the touching electro pop jewel „King Kong Is Not Dead“ comes as an extra feel good song.
On Februar 24th, 2014, Pappelallee gets its reissue as a remastered 10th Anniversary Edition including five bonus tracks.

Mole Listening Pearls welcome a brand new signing. Superluminal -- a production trio from Warsaw, Poland, formed in 2011. Superluminal performs electronic music, saturated with colour, teeming with expression, resonating with dynamics, luxuriant in depth and full of other relevant nerdy scientific verbal equations. Electromagnetism, strong nuclear force, weak nuclear force and gravity -- these are the four main forces governing the stability of our reality. Just like the perfect balance of melody, harmony and rhythm render absolute music. Superluminal strives to find this balance and exceed the established criteria of electronic music production with no compromises, encompassing influences from jazz, rock, soul, modernism, film, photography and graphical art. Superluminal is not afraid to play its music live -- with almost infinite amount of cables connecting synthesizers, laptops, midi controllers, microphones, guitars and saxophones, in a seemingly chaotic fashion. Superluminal is -- coherence, manipulation and reason.
