Moon Boots is the alter ego of Pete Dougherty. Hailing from Hawkins, Indiana, Dougherty woke up one summer morning with an itch on the back of his neck. It was a classic good news / bad news dilemma. Bad news: he was possessed. Good news: he was possessed by a benevolent funky spirit who called himself Moon Boots.
After a long stint in Chicago where he immersed himself in the House scene and taught himself Production and DJing, Boots is proud to call Brooklyn home. His second album, ‘Bimini Road,’ named after the ruins of Atlantis found in the Bahamas, is coming out Sep 6th on Anjunadeep.
