Mosaik (Monkeytown Records)

Contact Jessica Linker about Siriusmo

After two years of hard work, Siriusmo (aka Moritz Friedrich) is finally ready to release his debut album, Mosaik, March 1st on Monkeytown Records. This album follows the release of Siriusmo’s phenomenal two-track single, “Feromonikon / Signal”.


As an artist who has been around for almost a decade, releasing dozens of singles and EPs on various Berlin-based record labels and remixing artists including Scissor Sisters, Gossip, Chikinki, Simian Mobile Disco, Boys Noize, Digitalism, Chromeo, A-Trak, Munk and many others, it’s about time he released his debut album!


Siriusmo, who grew up listening to Stevie Wonder, The Beatles and hip-hop, and playing organ in a 70s inspired band, is 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 genres of music. For Moritz, the sound of Siriusmo should be futuristic. Not like our current uanding of the future, but more like the version of the future painted in the 70s: exaggerated, improvisational, colorful, extravagant, open-minded, sometimes trashy, but never cheap.


Mosaik will be released digitally, on CD, and 2xLPs. The vinyl version includes four exclusive bonus tracks, while the CD comes with edits of specific songs and two exclusive tracks. The CD version is the only format that includes “Nights Off,” a true highlight of Siriusmo’s first EP, “The Uninvited Guest” for Monkeytown Records in 2009.
