The Librarian is the demure moniker of West Coast bass music legend Andrea Graham, founder of the revered British Columbia festival Bass Coast and a lauded producer and DJ. Today (March 11), Graham returns with her latest single "Moon Illusion," premiering exclusively on Billboard Dance.
The song is a sleek cut of half-time bass that has the dark allure of a moonlit night. The track itself is inspired by celestial events, with the idea of "Moon Illusion" coming to Graham on the night of a Wolf Blood Moon, when the full moon appears particularly large. The new song comes on the heels of her 2019 tracks "Invisible" and "Blue Tusk," and represents the accomplishment of a goal Graham set for herself last year.
"The past decade, I took time off of music production to focus on producing the Bass Coast festival and to tour as a DJ," Graham tells Billboard Dance. "Last year, I set a goal of returning to music production by releasing three tracks in 12 months that represent who I am now as a DJ and a producer. I wanted to strike a balance of producing music that is both an emotional outlet and fits in my DJ sets. I was drawn to music that has a melodic story but is also gritty with a powerful low end."
