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
