Album artwork for Moonwalker by Noah Furbringer and Friends

The current moment in music is an interesting one: electronic music is more popular than ever, but at the same time there is a growing counter-world of new bands and musicians who are inventing new styles by reinterpreting old styles and combining live music with electronic production. Many of these new musicians are switching between "scenes" and styles - just like many young listeners do today. Kryptox, the sub-label of Toy Tonics, is a platform for these new hybrid musicians. Noah Fürbringer is one of these new talents. Moving in these intermediate worlds - a virtuoso drummer, composer and busy band leader who is at home in many genres and besides writing his own great music which he debuts on this album he also is a side musicians for some big names of the German rap and indie pop scene.

Since he moved to Berlin in 2019 a lot of things happened: he came with a big hunger for creating something meaningful out of his radical lust to play drums and make music with as much different musicians as possible. This album - his debut as a bandleader, composer, producer, drummer - marks a special moment in his very young career. The LP is pure jazz funk in a modern style. Some might even call it jazz rock or fusion. Great compositions which fit perfectly in today's neo jazz scene. For Noah this is a comeback to his first love of music - finally on his own album after spending the last years playing in projects of other musicians.



Noah now presents his first solo album Moonwalker. The album, for which Noah Fürbringer gathered a handful of friends around him, shows the wide spectrum of his musical abilities and the intense interest in exchange with other musicians. At a certain point the voice of Detroit activist and musician Malik Yakini appears in two pieces and talks about John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders and the revolutionary power of black music. Noah Fürbringer explains: ‘ It's not only a tribute to jazz, but also a political statement. The two pieces are a reference to how many different musical worlds I want to bring together.’
