Producer and DJ Moon Boots is back with exciting news. He’s just announced his second album, Bimini Road, inspired by the discovery of the ruins of Atlantis at Bimini in the Bahamas, Bimini Road is a joyous listen that combines elements of soulful & melodic house, disco, and R&B.
As if the promise of a new collection of work wasn’t enough, Moon Boots went above and beyond delivering a new jazz house focused tune titled “Tied Up,” an ode to the bonds of love and/or bondage (depending on your perspective). Boots and his friend, Brooklyn nightlife fixture Steven Klavier
, channel their appreciation for barbershop harmonies and early Pharrell to create a sweet and unforgettable summer jam.
Moon Boots’ debut album First Landing was an instant classic, bringing a new finesse to today’s disposable music culture
and steadily amassing an impressive 35 million streams since its release in August 2017. Praised by Mixmag for its “deep textures and funky melodies,” First Landing has become a contemporary electronic masterpiece. With Bimini Road, Moon Boots has brought back collaborators from both his debut album and his ambitious 7-person live show.
Born in Brooklyn, Moon Boots gravitated to music at an early age, spending many years playing piano, keyboards, and synthesizers before he ever made a beat. Inspired by legends like Frankie Knuckles, Derrick Carter, and Paul Johnson, he moved to the home of house music, Chicago, where he played synth in an indie band and worked as a local DJ before aligning with the legendary French Express label for his earliest releases. Eventually signed to taste-making UK label Anjunadeep, Moon Boots has always stayed true to his mission of making infectious music that transcends genre. Songs not just for DJs and dance-floors, but for everyone.
