Pop Kult #009 // Moon Boots (French Express, Chicago) x CC:Disco (D is for Disco, Melbourne)
P O P K U L T
The French Express label returns to Pop Kult through mysterious artist Moon Boots. Much like our February headliner Perseus, Moon Boots delivers a feel good, body-warming blend of disco, funk and house.
+ Moon Boots (French Express, Chicago)
Moon Boots entered the world in the mid-1980s via Cape Canaveral. After years of service as the preferred footwear of celebrity astronauts (notably Tom Hanks), Moon Boots came to life during a classified experiment aboard the International Space Station. Little is known of what actually transpired aboard the shuttle, but in short, Moon Boots became a sentient creature, equipped with reason, intuition, and groove.
Before long, he grew tired of working for the space-military-industrial complex and found solace in the soothing sounds of underground disco and R&B boogie records. He knew it was only of matter of time before he was hung up like so many boots before him. He abandoned the program and used his savings to build a music-production studio in an unnamed U.S. location, where he is currently working.
+ CC:Disco (D is for Disco, Melbourne)
CC became CC:DISCO! after playing her first DJ set in a dark room in Melbourne, Australia. It must have been a success, because more recently CC:DISCO! has merged her love for DJ'ing, sound production and talking into one; hosting successful radio show "D is for Disco" on Kiss FM in Australia. This one of a kind show is focused on genres of disco, nu disco and house and has gained a strong following both in Australia and worldwide.
