Moon Boots has always stayed true to his mission of making infectious music that transcends genre. His debut album, First Landing, was a rare slow burn in today’s disposable music culture, steadily amassing the Anjunadeep artist a broad international following and an impressive 35 million streams since its August 2017 release. Now the Brooklyn native releases his sophomore album, Bimini Road, via Anjunadeep.
Inspired by the discovery of the ruins of Atlantis at Bimini in the Bahamas, the 12-track LP combines elements of soulful and melodic house, disco, and R&B. The album includes the new retro-fantastic delight “Clear” as well as show-stopping summer teasers in “Tied Up” and “Juanita,” all of which received support from Claptone, Above & Beyond, The Black Madonna, Diplo, among others.
“Bimini Road is about discovering something new, and escaping from the every day,” says Pete of Moon Boots. “It’s a journey without a fixed destination, a road that could lead to a mythical paradise that’s ancient and yet futuristic. Or it might not! But that mystery is worth exploring. I experimented with lots of new styles and sounds but kept it grounded in what I do best. It’s an album with lots of dancefloor moments and a lot of heart.”
With Bimini Road, Moon Boots has brought back collaborators from both his debut album and his ambitious 7-person live show. See a full list of stops/dates for Moon Boots’ Bimini Road live tour below. Tickets are also available here.
