Needless to say, URB has a very long history with Moby, dating back to the very early ’90s. One thing we know is that he is an artist who moves from stance to stance with little regard for expectations. From rave anthems and diva house to sampledelic pop hits and moody soundscapes (and let’s not forget that metal album), it’s always interesting to hit play on a new Moby record and see what sound comes out of the speakers.
Following the brooding songwriting of 2009′s Wait For Me, Moby’s latest three song utterance, The One EP, certainly moves back to the electronica he’s still most associated with. But it still retains hints of melancholy, even when it’s getting rather epic, such as the string ladden “Sevastopol.” You can check that one out for yourself right here, and download the full EP on his site.
Moby’s 10th full-length, Destroyed, will be released in May 2011.
