Moon-Boots: A Cosmic Experience

The only thing I have to say about this mix is that I love big movie themes and that late seventies/early eighties space sound! So consider it a soundtrack to a non-existing sf-movie, or something like that... I'm still waiting for an assignment to compile the music for a movie officially, though! ;-) Probably the best space track ever is Starship 109 from Mistral. It’s such a good song! Mistral is a space disco project from Dutchman Robbie van Leeuwen who wrote ‘Venus’ for Shocking Blue, a number one in the US in 1970 (and for Bananarama in 1986). You can hear him play guitar on this track as well.

'Moon-boots' is also available on Discogs Mixes. So put on your space suits and enjoy this trip to the moon! And if you can’t get enough of the space sound, listen to Beats In Space or the posts from Beat Electric.

Next up is ‘Be gentle with my ears’, my first mix with some exotica (or tropical jazz) in it.
