Christian musician Moby is one of the pillars of electronic music. In the late 90′s he redefined this music style and brought electronic music from the clubs into the mainstream. His Everything Is Wrong set a new bar for the genre that many have reached for since. It was the best album of 1995 in any genre. 1999′s Play was a revolution that ranks as one of the top 100 albums in the rock era. Both recordings are on One21music’s Essentail 100, our collection of 100 recordings by Christian musicians that we believe everyone should own, or at least listen to.
Moby‘s latest’s, Destroyed, lands in stores on May 17th, see our Release Dates for a full list of music releases over the next few months. You can buy the cd with a book of images that Moby has taken from around the world, in a deluxe cd package with some of the photos, as a standard jewel case cd or digitally. However, Moby has given us a gift. He is streaming the entire album online along with a map of the pictures he has taken on his travels around the world. It is an incredible piece of art. I cannot wait until Tuesday so I can get my hands on this package. Here is what Moby says about his newest creation.
“i don’t sleep very well when i travel. and as a result, i tend to be awake in cities when everyone else is asleep. that’s where this album, and the pictures that accompany it come from. it was primarily written late at night in cities when i felt like i was the only person awake (or alive), a soundtrack for empty cities at 2 a.m, at least that’s how i hear it. the pictures were taken on tour while i was writing the album. i wanted to show a different side of touring and traveling. a side that is often mundane, disconcerting, and occasionally beautiful. ”
