ProgSphere’s Progstravaganza Compilation of Awesomeness – Part 9

Although it was planned for quite a long time now that the ninth part of our Progstravaganza series of compilations is filled up with the music from MoonJune Records, I decided to go a level up and deliver a compilation which is divided into two volumes. The first one is dedicated to MoonJune Records, while the second volume comes with songs from various labels I found interesting to include.

The idea of doing a MoonJune themed compilation is not something new, but it took the final shape after I spoke with Leonardo Pavković, the mainman behind this New York label. MoonJune Records is one of my favorites, and it’s simple amazing that every Leonardo releases is a real masterpiece. And MoonJune doesn’t know for limits, musically and geographically, Leonardo and the MoonJune family explore the term progressive within its definition. From Italy to Indonesia, this fine record label delivers the greatest of modern progressive rock and jazz fusion.

On the other hand, the second volume of this compilation is comprised of several bands off the Prog Sphere Promotions roster wrapped up with few “outsiders“. The idea was to make a colourful tracklist and hopefully I managed to do it.

I have in plan to do something special for the next compilation, but until that happens, enjoy this 210+ minutes long slab! Thanks for being a part of this.
