Moon Boots’ new album Bimini Road reveals the Anjunadeep artist in peak form, displaying the soulful house music stylings he’s become globally known for, as well as introducing a bevy of new influences. Standout track “Whisper in the Wind,” which features a stunning vocal performance from Black Gatsby, is now being released as a single with an accompanying remix by Grammy-winning artist, Alex Metric.
“Whisper in the Wind” is an effortlessly groovy love song built on smooth retro-inspired synth work from Moon Boots and paired with R&B vocals from Los Angeles singer, Black Gatsby. The two previously collaborated on “Power” from Moon Boots’ debut album First Landing; a powerful combination of forces that was recently used as the soundtrack to a UNICEF campaign surrounding the fight against child marriage and the promotion of schooling for women from Niger. Heartfelt and ornate, “Whisper in the Wind” perfectly encapsulates the addictive warmth that is present in so much of Moon Boots’ work.
Escorting the original is a lively interpretation from the esteemed producer, Alex Metric. A long-standing figure in the UK dance scene, OWSLA’s Alex Metric has remixed the likes of Depeche Mode, NERD, Ellie Goulding, Sade, and Gorillaz, and earlier this year, won a Grammy for Best Dance Record for his co-production on Dua Lipa, Silk City, Diplo, and Mark Ronson’s massive international hit, ‘Electricity.’ Metric’s take on ‘Whisper In The Wind’ breathes distinct club energy into the mix, making this a sure incoming staple in his DJ sets, as well as in crates for DJs across the globe.
The accompanying video for ‘Whisper In The Wind’ is part independent cinema, part beautiful dance film, part surrealistic visual dream – the story of an otherworldly being heading home. The video depicts the cosmic tale of an unnamed woman wandering a sprawling coastal landscape, and encountering an alien object that rhythmically pulls her, enticing her into its mysterious orbit like a Whisper In The Wind.
Inspired by the discovery of the ruins of Atlantis at Bimini in the Bahamas, Moon Boots’ sophomore album Bimini Road is a joyous listen that combines elements of soulful & melodic house, disco, and R&B. The album includes the new single ‘Whisper In The Wind’ in addition to recent summer anthems ‘Tied Up, ’Juanita’ and ‘Clear’ which have received airplay on SiriusXM, BBC Radio 1, triple j, KCRW, as well as DJ support from Claptone, Above & Beyond, The Black Madonna, Diplo and many more.
