@danielmoonking “My new songs are basically about learning to be an actor. ‘Survival Of The Strongest’ is about competition.” 
 Moon King’s new album ‘The Audition’ will be released July 16 on Arbutus Records. 
 Moon King is the synthpop project of Toronto-born singer & producer Daniel Benjamin. In the early 2010's Daniel was part of the flourishing electronic music scene in Montreal, performing as a touring musician with Grimes and Sean Nicholas Savage while beginning to write & produce his own music. A 2016 move to Detroit and immersion in that city’s vibrant dance music and DJ culture began to influence his own recordings, and a collection of new material found its way back to Montreal label Arbutus Records, who offered to release it. 
 Hamtramck '16, named for the Detroit-area neighborhood, was released in the summer of 2017, documenting Moon King's shift towards disco and dance music. He’s toured extensively in North America & Europe with artists like Men I Trust, TOPS, Mr Twin Sister, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
