This dual premiere on two of Univision’s most important media channels reaffirms MOENIA’s status as an icon of Latin America-made (Mexico) electronic music for world consumption.
A release of the video through MOENIA’s own social networks will follow, so that the group may share this milestone with its legion of fans. The group is always interacting with fans via Twitter@MoeniaMX, where the band keeps loyal followers updated on its artistic doings, thoughts, pictures, and more.

“En Eléctrico” is being released on OCESA-Sei Track (Mexico) and produced by Latin GRAMMY© award winner Armando Ávila, recognized for his work with leading contemporary Latin music artists, such as La 5ª Estación, , RBD, and , to mention a few. This album features a collection of new versions of MOENIA’s greatest hits and special & unique musical collaborations by María José (ex Kabah), Juan Carlos Lozano (ex MOENIA vocalist) and Paco Huidobro (Fobia).
“We included new versions of each one of our songs, a little more ‘raw’, with lots of synth, but all recorded live or programmed live, very different from a studio album where you have many sequences and other things throughout,” said , lead vocalist of the group.
As a plus, ‘En Electrico’ features a DVD in which Jorge Soto (organ) explains how the content took shape, “we played with a small crowd of 60 people, all live, so it has this vibe of a live performance but with super powerful synthesizers, drums - it’s a very interesting process, you can’t stop hearing MOENIA. It’s like an unplugged show but with a plugged feeling.”
With eight albums and a career that spans almost two decades, the group that is frequently compared to transcendental bands like New Order, Erasure, The Cure, and Depeche Mode has perfected a sound that mixes experimental tones and electric rhythms almost poetically and is eager to share the latest expression of it with the USA.
