Moon Boots
Moon Boots
Over the past few years, Moon Boots (real name: Pete Dougherty) has developed a cult following for producing catchy, soulful dance music on French Express and Anjunadeep. His DJ sets have been acclaimed for their hypnotic energy & seamless melodies, fusing disco and Chicago house classics with contemporary club sounds from around the world.

While he's made his reputation as a producer and DJ, Dougherty's musical roots are as a keyboardist. Fresh off a lauded debut live performance on KCRW's famed Morning Becomes Eclectic show last Fall, 2018 will see Boots jumping out of the DJ booth and onto the live stage for a series of special performances. Moon Boots: Live will see the Brooklynite joined on stage by a full band for the first time. The band will perform live versions of songs and remixes from his beloved back catalogue, and from his critically acclaimed 2017 full length, First Landing.

"First Landing is a sensual, luxurious experience...There are no sleepy moments on this album. It showcases Moon Boots' versatility while staying well centered around the bedroomy theme....This is the one to put on Saturday night when you're ready to seal the deal." - Billboard

"First Landing is Dougherty's artistic awakening, his first proper attempt at creating something of this magnitude, on which he makes his solo statement while colonizing a new creative dimension...He ditches the the simpler, four-to-the-floor club tracks for which he's best known and instead reaches for the cosmos via fully blossomed songs." - DJ Mag

"First Landing, the debut LP from Anjunadeep star Moon Boots, is an undeniably accomplished piece of music" - Dancing Astronaut
