Moonraker - the spirit of live electronic soul. Moonraker blends elements of drum & bass, house and jazz infused trip-hop to create some of the most fresh and intelligent music to surface in the Boston scene in years. With atmospheric grooves derived out of past Massive Attack, Portishead and Esthero influences, and away to an original creative vision.
Moonraker branches out from the current state of music, working with the remnants of d'n'b and house. The energy of dance music is filtered through the live band, creating the sexiest sound to surface in years. The power of the human voice merges with epic soundscapes and ever-evolving breakbeats to continue the ancient story forever told.
The recent upsurge of the live electronic scene has gained a rapidly growing audience, and Moonraker has been steadily moving to the crest of this wave of new music. Having been together for two years, the group has packed countless rooms in the Boston area, including the Middle East, House of Blues, Bill's Bar, the Paradise and the Somerville Theater. Moonraker is continually broadening its fan base with regular performances in Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, Vermont, Toronto and New York City (Wetlands, Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory). Moonraker were named 'Best New Band in Boston' by WBOS 92.9, and are featured regularly on local radio (WBCN, WERS). Moonraker has shared the stage with notable acts including DJ Spooky, Ice-T, Amon Tobin, Joan Osbourne and the Disco Biscuits.
