Moonbootica have become synonymous with original, energetic compilations, using them as a forum to grow a huge fanbase in their native Germany. Their latest double-cd compilation mix glides easily between electro, deep house, disco-soul and tech house in a three hour musical education of dance music in 2009.
At times banging, at times melancholic, the mix never falters from being completely compelling. Tracks featured include offerings from relative newcomers such as Alex Metric, Aeroplane and Disco Trash Music, while evergreen veterans like Adam Freeland, Evil Nine and In Flagranti provide the perfect accompaniment.
The unexpected inclusion of two brand-new tracks from Moonbootica, “The Ease” and “Men Of The Future” is a highlight, two epic contributions that one hopes indicates the style of their next studio album. This collection transcends the countless mixtapes knocking around at the moment, as the pair crown their ten year musical career by once again reminding fans of electronic music why we love it so much.
