Moon Hooch Pushes Sonic Boundaries On New Single, ‘Booty House’ [Premiere]

first_imgThe beloved trio known as Moon Hooch began innocently enough, with three music students busking in the subways of New York City. Those days are long in the past now, however, as their approach to dance music has cemented their place as musical innovators. With two horn players, Mike Wilbur and Wenzl McGowen, alongside drummer James Muschler, the band creates an intoxicating sonic display with each and every performance.With two albums in the books, Moon Hooch is gearing up for their third-ever release, Red Sky. Due out on June 10th, Moon Hooch’s new release pushes the boundaries even farther, using electronic technology to add mystifying effects to their organic instrumentation. The new elements of Moon Hooch’s music are almost too innumerable to count: Electronic Wind Instruments, a “Reverse DJ” setup with saxophone sounds running through Ableton, vocal contributions from Wilbur, and more.Not only that, but Muschler travelled to India to immerse himself in percussion-oriented music. The band also champions meditation and environmental causes, and themes of consciousness – both self and environmental – run rampant throughout the release. At the heart of Moon Hooch is dance music, which is the cornerstone of Red Sky.With the new album due out in just a few short weeks, the band has offered us a first listen single premiere. Tune in to “Booty House” from Moon Hooch’s upcoming Red Sky release, below.Wilbur spoke to us about the creation of “Booty House,” saying, “This track was made in our old basement in Brooklyn after smoking a large spliff. It was a time where as a joke I would blast happy hardcore music and dance around the house. I guess that influenced this track.”You can pre-order Red Sky by following this link.
