 [item value="10"]Moon Boots - First Landing[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Moon Boots album First Landing is an excellent example of futuristic electronic house that combines great infectious grooves, original drum programming, deep dark basslines with jazzy ambient touches in order to come up with an album that is travelling, inspiring and simply impossible to ignore. From the tracks released so far and the album sampler on offer is not hard to find moments that will make you recall house classics and  dance the night away like we used to do. Even in the digital age that music is everywhere you can discover albums that make you go OHH YEAHH! #PureGold Love iT[/content]
