What Would You DO... WITH MOON BOOTS


Anyone who cites Moon Zappa and Bootsy Collins as their musical influences is already a winner in our books. Born in Brooklyn and built in Chicago Moon Boots first cut his teeth in music through playing Piano and Synths before turning his hand to DJ’ing. An evolution which always tends to produce the best results when it comes to taking control behind the decks.
