This is a song I wrote in the middle of the night, when the moon was bright and shiny, losing track of time. With “Moon A.M.” I went back to the vibe on my first LP Jazz Sessions – Bill Evans-like meditative chord progressions and deep Stan-like drums.

[ Artist Bio ]
Melbourne-based musician Stan Forebee creates beats by blending hip hop, classical music, and jazz with electronic influences, with a focus on complex chord progressions and colourful melodies.

Born in The Netherlands as Bastiaan van der Vlist, music has always been at the center of his life. His first piano teacher was his father at 3 years old; a strong foundation on which he later developed a passion for jazz & hip hop around his teen years. Stan started making beats inspired by J Dilla & Flying Lotus, Bill Evans & Erroll Garner.

Stan’s debut album Jazz Sessions (2013) gained attention worldwide – 18M+ streams on Spotify alone.

[ Release Info ]
Being among the pioneers of chillhop music, Dutch-born, Melbourne-based producer/musician Stan Forebee has worked with labels like Chillhop Records, Cold Busted & Hip Dozer, and has collaborated with other legendary artists like Cloudchord, Oatmello & ØDYSSEE. All resulting in 90M+ streams across major DSPs & projects with brands like Marvel, MTV & NPR.

In early 2023, Stan delivers his debut release with Stereofox – the nocturnal jazzhop gem “Moon A.M.”, inspired by the quietude of the night and the sheen of the moon.

You’ll find yourself lost in his mellow jazzy chord progressions & deep drum groove, winking at his original style found in debut LP Jazz Sessions.
