Moby has been on quite the promotional tear of late for his recently released album ‘Innocents,’ his eleventh studio album to date.

Tomorrow at 11:15am PST he’ll be a guest on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, and Friday fans will be able to livestream the now sold-out Fonda Theatre show online for free.
All this to promote ‘Innocents,’ which came out this week on Mute. Get our thoughts on the album after the jump, and if you’re in LA tickets for tonight and Thursday are still available HERE! Continue Reading
When you go out in the Big Apple, you don’t just go out….you go out with a vengeance. With a constant supply of excellent party options, party-hopping becomes an art that only the most hardy of partiers can properly perform. Well, as a tried and true “party animal” I started my New Years celebrations early and have the battle scars to prove it. Check out my insane NYE weekend after the jump and find out all the debauchery I got up to over the last few days…and don’t miss my chat with RUSKO about drugs, the holidays and his plan to release all his future music for free!
MOBY‘s legendary track, “Extreme Ways,” was originally released in the summer of 2002 as a single off of his acclaimed album, 18. Since then, the electronic/rock single equipped with MOBY’s melancholy vocals has been licensed for all four of the Bourne films — with a new version released with Bourne Ultimatum and another new rendition for the most recent Bourne Legacywhich hit screens this summer. Along with the newest version, “Extreme Ways” was also given the remix treatment by a few artists, including this stabbing Tech House remix from M-nus‘ Matador out of Dublin, Ireland. Have a listen chaps + lasses and be on the lookout for the forthcoming remix package out on Beatport September 24th and worldwide October 8th. √+
It should be fairly well-known now that electronic music pioneer, Moby, is one of our collective all-time favorite artists. He’s been making beats and breaking molds for decades, and his ongoing relevancy is a testament to how innovative his productions truly are. On that note, the hairless wonder released a masterful single titled ‘After’ this past fall, collecting an impressive remix roster including Tommy Trash and Tim Mason, amongst others. Now, there seems to be a surplus of good remixes that couldn’t fit on the EP, including this dichotomously heavy/light take by M83 collaborator and Mellowdrone frontman, Jonathan Bates; producing under the side project, Big Black Delta. Have a listen and check out our interview with Moby at Electric Zoo here!

• Pat Lok – No Shame (Goldroom Remix) A bottle rinses up on the shore. It is filled with euphoria, sunshine, and a crescendo from outer space. Our good buddy Josh (Goldroom) keeps pumping out instant classics that will make your soul glow.
• Luther Vandross – I Wonder (SAH Re-Froth) SAH was foraging in a long forgotten place between space and time and stubbled upon a funky ball of tits. He had the funk, and had to keep the funk alive. It’s the spawn of a new time where light up dance floors glisten off a tan butt poached up on a lengthy pair of stems.
Our buddies PeaceTreaty have constructed a massive new mix for you guys, reflecting their transformation this year into a big room monster.
