'Moon Money' EP Out 14 May

Hot Sugar - 'Moon Money' EP Out 14 May

Ninja Tune will release the new EP from Hot Sugar, Moon Money, on 14 May/15 US.

Armed with snares made from human bones, kicks fashioned from an ultra-amplified rat’s heartbeat and melodies from the breathing of an 86 year old man covered head to toe in tattoos, New York City’s Nick Koenig aka Hot Sugar has the ability to take even the most obscure found sounds and turn them into some of the most melodious and infectious compositions in electronic music today. Nowhere is that more apparent than on his latest EP, the stunning Moon Money.

The ability to record every day sounds, or not so every day when it comes to standing outside in a hurricane to map the sound of the wind to a keyboard, and turn them into catchy, well disguised melodies and rhythms is a musical style Koenig has deemed 'Associative Music'.

And, if Hot Sugar is Associative Music’s founder, then Moon Money may play as its manifesto. From the yearning harmonics and soaring melancholy on "The Kid Who Drowned at Summer Camp" to the defamiliarised soundtrack to lunacy that is "#Mindcontrol", Koenig’s grasp of melody is ever present and packs a visceral punch.

Moon Money will be released 14 May/15 May US and is available to pre-order now at the Ninjashop and iTunes. You can grab a free download of "#Mindcontrol" and watch the video here.
