Maan on the Moon
The story behind Maan On The Moon began when the John Raaysand Smil – better known as Maan on the Moon – first met backstage at a festival and connecting through their passion for music, have been friends ever since. With his more electro background, Johnwas quick to share his obsessions of the time – which included Swedish House Mafia and Laidback Luke – with Smil, who had come from the world of hip-hop. The pair clicked, and began swapping creations by email, completing each other’s ideas, before eventually getting together in the studio. Their first hit, ‘Scar’, was born, bearing all the hallmarks of Maan On The Moon’s soon to be signature sound: electro music with pop ambitionswith a firm focus on strong melodies. Taking inspiration from across the music spectrum, from deep-house to hip-hop (think Drake and Kanye West), to pop and guitars, their most recent offering ‘Black Train’ even features the harmonica, a tribute to the soundtracks of westerns by the Italian Ennio Morricone.
