Since 2012, Philly’s Corey Regensburg, a.k.a. Moon Bounce, has been releasing EPs that blend electronic music with hip-hop, soul, funk and a whole mess of other wonderful shenanigans. This Friday, he debuts his first ever full-length album, titled Clean Housewhich you can stream below.

His most cohesive work to date, Clean House features nine eccentric, no-boundaries tracks that turn electro-pop music on its head. Elements of M83 and Glass Animals seep its way into the album, amongst sultry vocals and well-crafted pop lyrics–with songwriting influences ranging from Michael Jackson to Prince to Michael McDonald.

Beat virtuoso and Philly native Moon Bounce has released a cosmic track dubbed “Shake” from his much anticipated EP Dress Rehearsal (due out 2/25 on Grind Select).

Moon Bounce (aka Corey Regensburg) draws comparisons to the likes of James Blake and Nicholas Jaar, but he’s much more than that. While “Shake” follows the Blake-Jaar mantra of distorted, looped vocals in every pitch and range, his beats delve deeper, with erratic yet steady percussion and warped electronic inclinations that completely fill the space of the track. Bringing to mind Shlohmo, whom Regensburg has shared the stage with, the track is fast and funky and a great teaser for the EP. What makes Moon Bounce so different from other artists? Well, for starters, his beats are completely cultivated on his own. No sampling necessary.

Prevalent on Dress Rehearsal is Moonbounce’s R&B influence, a signature part of his sound that contributes to his unique productions. The slowed down, laid back percussion on “Ouroboros” is a perfect example of this smooth-as-hell, neck-nodding style that’s so addictive. The EP drops February 25, and it is certainly one to keep on the radar. Listen to the track “Shake” below.
