A couple of years ago, some friends took me to the famed weekly party, Low End Theory, to see one of the LA beat scene’s emerging artists, Astronautica. Although it was a while back, I still vividly remember her fantastic set, and it was this memory that spurred me to enlist her for our guest mix series. Since dropping her vibey Waikiki EP on Alpha Pup a few months ago, she’s been quiet on the release front, but she’s been staying busy with studio sessions in between tour dates. Now Astronautica delivers a smooth and eclectic mix of jams to help you get through the day in a positive way. If you’re around in LA this Friday, catch her live at The Do LaB event with Dimond Saints!

It’s officially starting to feel like summer time in LA. The sun is shining, girls are out by the pool, and the disco tunes keep flowing. What better way to celebrate the season then a new tune by Moon Boots. Love Strong stays true to form with the French Express vision blending sensual soul vocals and vibrant keys. Pour yourself a drink and enjoy the free download!
Sweet, Sweet, disco nectar delivered strait to your door. This sun-kissed ultra funky mix mutates & cultivates the vibes of Tropicool‘s essence in the South Bay. Everything is in full bloom, the birds, bees, and the myrts feel it. The sand is warm and the micheladas are frosty. Poseidon is holding a conch shell to his ear, and the vibration station is starting to reverberate. Perv and swerve, because for this one, you’re meant to loose control while on cruise control.
Exclusive Tracklisting After Jump
Every month, The Magician releases a Magic Tape without a track list. Each time, listeners across the land try to be the first one to solve the case & figure out every song in the mix. But every time, without fail, there’s always one or two mystery tracks that stump the listeners. This month, our boy Moon Boots was the man responsible for the mystery remix on Magic Tape Thirty. While most listeners knew that the third song on Magic Tape Thirty was “Gold” by Bondax, nobody was quite sure who the remixer was. Once they found out, the reaction was a collective “Ah, I should’ve known it was him”. To nobody’s surprise, they knew it was going to be somebody they loved.
Moon Boots’ remix of “Gold” is classy and sophisticated, the kind of speakeasy house music that you put on a suit and tie for…or your sexiest cocktail dress. No cheap whiskey & ripped tees for this one. A song like this must be accompanied with a bottle of your finest. And a gold watch of course.
Smooth + elegant…
The protectors of feel-good music are hard at work once again. American label, French Express, has made it customary to give damn good music out for free on a regular basis, and this week’s gem comes from GDD™ fav Moon Boots. Sensual, smooth vocals are matched with a swift bassline, allowing for whispy leads to set the table for an overall groover. Thanks as always French Express!

Event details & Tunes After the Jump
The summer heat has been in full force here in Los Angeles, and what better than a new remix to either help you simmer down or keep things groovin’. Moon Boots has given Alison Valentine‘s “Peanut Butter” his signature tropical treatment that refreshingly ventures away from the usual four-on-the-floor house beat. Have a listen and download the track after the jump, but before that, here’s an interesting story on how this remix came about:
“Back in June when Perseus and Jonas Rathsman and I played Wanderlust in Paris, we met Alison Valentine, a singer and flowergirl from NYC. I’ll never forget that she brought flowers to the show. She brought me flowers, I made her a remix… ” – Moon Boots
