Music Monday: Moon Boots, Blonde Maze, Locked In, Fitch & Hexl, and Braxton

A career-affirming moment in Pete Dougherty’s decade-long journey as Moon Boots, his acclaimed second LP ‘Bimini Road’ showcased the Brooklyn-based artist at his best. A display of his signature soulful take on house music, the 2019 album earned worldwide recognition from industry tastemakers including DJ Mag and Mixmag. The album has accumulated over 25 million streams to date, has been praised by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Danny Howard and Annie Nightingale, and was listed in KCRW’s ‘Top 10 Albums of 2019’. 

Blonde Maze’s indie electronic sound is at its very best and a great sign of what’s to come. She has already showcased her work on some of the biggest platforms – BBC Radio 1, Sirius XM Chill, and was included on Spotify’s Top 50 Viral Chart. Check out her latest, “Diamond Eyes”.

Italian Metallic-hardcore punks Locked In are unveiling another piece of their comeback attack plan. After releasing their first EP in 7 years last December (‘Not Dead Yet’ EP), the Perugia-based five-piece band has announced a second EP along with a new single, “Coward”.

Fitch & Hexl tie together tranquil electronic production with fuzzy breakbeats on their New Noise debut “Moments,” featuring airy toplines sung by Aerborn.

Since his debut on Anjunadeep with ‘When The Sun Goes Down’, Brighton-based DJ and producer Braxton has been steadily earning a reputation in the dance scene as a formidable producer, with a number of solo productions, and remixes for the likes of RÜFÜS DU SOL, Tourist, and Grades that have won him support from BBC Radio 1 and Sirius XM.

Marking a bold return, Braxton now delivers his three-track EP ‘Indigo’. A fan favorite from the recent label compilation Anjunadeep 12, title-track ‘Indigo’ favors breakbeat drums and staccato synths whilst ‘Wilderness’ features an echoing vocal sample.
