Waldeck Unleashes New Album ‘The Moon and the Orient’

Waldeck ventures into the realm of electronics with strong references to jazz, swing, and cinematic sounds, with the release of his album, The Moon and the Orient. He invites listeners on a mesmerising journey with this dreamlike offering emerging as a compelling introduction to a new wave into his exceptional music discography.

Thematically, the story of the genie's never-full freedom is told in the concept album. The person who releases the 12 Waldeck genies from their oil lamps will win people over to their charms for at least 1001 nights, be it in a ballroom, on the dance floor, or any other place where love is pursued. Zeebee and Lucy McEvil, two drag performers, appear on the record. His regular musical collaborator since 2017, Patrizia Ferrara, contributes vocals with an enthralling performance that highlights the album's elegance.

“The orient is a wonderful place of stories and imagination. I also like the idea of genies which seem to be the personification of the saying “be careful what you wish for”,” Waldeck comments on the release.

Waldeck has crafted an album that is both a testament to the enduring power of his renowned electronic music and a bold declaration of his unique sound. Whether you're a long-time fan of the genre or a newcomer, this album is a must-listen. Just push play, and let the music speak for itself.
