Saturday night’s residency launch with Moon Boots proved to be a great night for our favorite Brooklyn spot, Verboten. Moon Boots always brings a satisfying crowd, but it seemed like anyone who’d ever heard his music made it out for this one!
As he hit the decks at 1 a.m., the melodic groove instantly hypnotized the crowd and brought them into a state of bliss. The dance floor was packed and the crowd moved. Although it seemed like an “unusual” Verboten crowd, they danced hard to every beat thrown at them — the vibe was on point.
Hypnotizing visuals hit the three wall projection in the Control Room as Moon Boot’s passion spewed into the crowd. As he jumped around like a little bean, the crowd did as well. Track after track, he brought emotion, sweat, and smiles.
Moon Boots brought a lot of his own well-noted material to the table, like his remix of “Do What You Wanna Do” and his remix of Lane 8’s “Loving You,” which brought a mesmerizing sound, making this special residency launch set one of the best sets we’ve ever heard from the Brooklyn local.
It would be silly not to mention the appearance of Frankey & Sandrino’s “Acamar” in the set as well. Moon Boots’ smile and energy projects something that makes it nearly impossible to walk away from his sets. It’s something that can’t really be labeled as anything other than good energy.
The two hour journey ended and the throne was immediately taken over by special guest, Kenny Dope. The second he hit the decks, the house juices flowed, it was almost overwhelming — in a good way of course, a really good way.
His track selection was one of a plethora of throwback hits — we planned on leaving early, but the music kept sucking us in. It’s no wonder guys like Kenny Dope stay true to their sound and can still sell out rooms across the country.
There really is nothing quite like a residency launch party — the hype is SO real. If you missed it, don’t worry, Moon Boots is back on October 29th for Halloween weekend! Maybe he’ll even throw some more new music our way before his return.
