Next up on Mixmag's Selects series is Moon Boots, the Brooklyn born Peter Dougherty who first broke through as a founding member of the French Express and has since branched off for his own project.
Finding a home on Anjunadeep, Moon Boots has garnered the support from the likes of major house tastemakers like Annie Mac, Gorgon City, Skream, Jamie Jones and more. This year, he's readying his debut album 'First Landing', which will release later in 2017 on the London-rooted imprint.
Ahead of his appearance at the festival on Saturday, Dougherty hands us a playlist of his current favourite listenings for this episode of Selects. Tune in below.
Wake & Odyssey 'Down With Tha'
It's addictive, I love the way they flipped this. What a crazy breakdown!
Falco 'Hoch Wie Nie' (Tensnake’s Sutje Mix)
Undeniable proof — if anyone needed it — that we will always need epic slo-mo disco music.
Radio Slave 'Another Club'
This track samples a Lady Gaga YouTube clip that’s been doing the rounds lately... I wonder if that is a coincidence or if he’s had it in the can for a while? Either way, it doesn't matter, it’s a banger.
David & Hijati 'Whatever You Want'
I just picked this up and it’s as funky as they come. Grade A edit material!
Efde 'My Bleep'
'My Bleep' starts a bit trance-y and ends up somewhere totally different. There's some sick programming and it's very fun to play out.
Moon Boots feat. Lulu James 'Tear My Heart' (Marquis Hawkes Remix)
Shameless plug alert! 'Tear My Heart' is coming soon on Anjunadeep!
Joakim 'Would You Give Up' (The Drifter Remix)
This tune is uplifting. Sort of cosmic stuff... and I know those words get overused, but that's what this is!
Carry Nation 'As If' (Justin Cudmore remix)
'As If' is acid house that’s way more catchy and fun than acid house has a right to be. To me, it sounds like he's looping the phrase "'cuz you must like Pete", which is probably what I find so catchy and fun about it.
Brett Johnson 'Lovin U'
This one is a few years old because I missed it the first time around... but better late than never!
Todd Terje 'Jungelknugen' (Four Tet Remix)
This is what happens when two brilliant minds collide. I can’t wait to hear Terje’s second album, or the original version of this song, for that matter.
