In celebration of Moogfest’s new location in Durham, NC, they’ve released a free digital EP called Translational Drifts: Moogfest Volume 1. The collection features contemporary artists like YACHT, Dan Deacon, and Moses Sumney reinterpreting musicians who have shaped Moogfest in the past. Frequent contributor and Moogfest curator YACHT said the following.
We love how Moog brings artists together. The sound of the machines and the culture of the company are like a bridge across genres and generations.
