Progressive music exploring boundaries of jazz, rock, ethno, avant and the unknown.

MOONJUNE RECORDS, which came into being in 2001 as the brainchild of entrepreneurial producer, tour manager and promoter Leonardo Pavkovic, is named after Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt’s famous 1970 epic “The Moon in June,” has already established a name for itself with “in the know” fans. Its focus is to release internationally-situated music by artists exploring the expanding boundaries of genuine, challenging, non-over- produced music that cannot be easily categorized into any specific format. MoonJune Records’ ongoing goal is to support music that transcends stylistic pigeon-holing, but operates within an evolutionary progressive musical continuum that places jazz at one end and rock at the other. The ever-expanding boundaries of these two musical categories have since come to include everything from progressive rock to ethno-jazz, from experimental avant-garde to jazz-rock, and anything in between.

“One thing is for sure: Leonardo Pavkovic’s label does not release records that a reviewer can easily dismiss with a couple of sentences and throw back in the heap. This stuff must be listened carefully before releasing any judgement; sometimes, precious diamonds might be found in the thickest mud.” - Massimo Ricci, Temporary Fault

“Leonardo, the owner of the MoonJune Records label, is a guy often seen hobnobbing with the progrock intelligentsia at festivals and concert events worldwide — the man seems to know everyone, from everywhere. Small wonder that he’s a master at international networking with a globetrotting resume that likely boasts a king’s ransom in bonus miles.” - John Collinge, Progression Magazine

“...one of the very few labels making constant & top-notch contributions to the sub-genre when the art environment is either hideously corporate or hopelessly fractionated as a result of rebellion against the soulless business-stamp-pressing of creativity,the imprint provides a haven for intelligent musicians refusing to compromise vision & integrity for ducats & indiscriminate public acceptance.” -Marc Tucker, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
