House music sensation Moon Boots returns with ‘Juanita’, the second single off his upcoming album Bimini Road, and the follow-up to his popular summer hit ‘Tied Up’, which has received airplay on SiriusXM, BBC Radio 1, KCRW, as well as DJ support from Claptone, Joris Voorn, Kaskade, Lane 8 and many more.
A slinky dance-floor workout combining elements of Prince and Cajmere, ‘Juanita’ was born at a late-night writing session that took place at Allaire Studios in Woodstock, NY (Mixmag’s October 2018 music retreat).
“Kaleena’s voice is so incredible and her energy is so infectious. You just have to see it to believe it.” says Pete of Moon Boots, “I’m amazed thinking back on the session that turned into “Juanita”. It was late at night and our sober daytime sessions had morphed into a full-blown party. Kaleena was saying “I need aerobics” over and over while I was messing around on an SH-101. I asked if she could change it to “Juanita hold me.” It shouldn’t work but it just does. I’m so grateful it was all recorded because it could have been a moment in time we laughed about and half-remembered. This is one of the club tracks I am most proud of, and none of it would be possible without Kaleena’s unstoppable energy and talent.”
In the words of Kaleena, “Moon Boots and I instantly clicked at the Mixmag retreat. We consistently found each other in the live rooms working on music and as a result, “Juanita” was born from a good ol’ live jam session we had one night. Pete is an outstanding musician/producer & it was an honor to work with him.”
