Moonboots - Moments In Time (2LP)


Nearly a decade has passed since the last compilation that Balearic stalwart Moonboots had a hand in putting together (a brilliant contribution to Claremont 56's much-missed Originals series alongside fellow Mancunian selector Balearic Mike), so this fine set has been a long time coming. As you'd expect, his selections are spot on. Atmospheric, gentle and sun-kissed, the Aficionado co-founder's choices flit between contemporary gems (fine cuts from Begin, Blank & Jones and Natureboy), slept-on goodies full of glistening guitar motifs and heaps of delay (see July Skies' brilliant "The Softest Kisses") and older cuts that will be unknown to all but the most dedicated Balearic diggers, including a fine, loved-up track by Paul Hardcastle called "Moments in Time" that's worth the admission price on its own.
