For those of you who didn't have the pleasure of falling in love with Moby's beats at age 12 because your eccentric mother took you travelling for 2 months to the Philippines...and all you had was 1 CD...I would like to personally introduce you to the bald headed, thick-rim spectacled legend - Moby. This american DJ has sold over 20 million albums worldwide and has collaborated with music icons such as MJ, David Bowie, Daft Punk aaaand Britney Spears (you know you've made it when...) Moby falls into the chillwave/electronic/techno//soul/trance/synthpop genre. The first track I'd like to share is called "In This World" which features Jennifer Price on vocals. Simply beautiful.
The second track is called "Porcelain", which happens to be featured in one of my favorite movies The Beach (Leo, so hot right now) and evokes so many beautiful memories from Boracay where I was swimming (shorts only) and chillin' on the beach with the other Philippino boys.
Interesting fact of the day: Moby/Eminem Beef. Apparently the feud started at the 2001 Grammy's when Moby spoke out against Eminem's misogynistic lyrics and homophobia. Eminem obviously didn't like that too much, so instead of physically retaliating by cappin' the bitch, he wrote Moby into "Without Me" - which may have just been worse...
"And Moby? You get can stomped by Obie
Except for my sister and I...we religiously listened to that 1 Moby CD while trying to fall asleep in the Spider House on Boracay island, while my mom partied it up at the Beach Comber till sunrise...good times.
Peace and love,
ps. I hope you are now as excited as I am to watch Moby perform at Coachella
