DJ/producer Moby has been having quite the productive summer, taking time out between playing festivals and releasing Darth & Vader collaboration track, “Death Star,” to unleash a brand new hour-long mix of modern EDM on his Soundcloud page.
Simply titled “July 2014 (Electro),” the new mix kicks off with a snippet of Moby’s own “Natural Blues” before charging through a selection of high energy tracks from DJ Snake, Charlie Darker, Congorock and more over the course of the set.
“Originally, (Wayne Coyne) wanted to build a harness so I hung upside down while they poured water past my face. We tried it for a second and it ended up being just me getting water-boarded,” Moby told Spin about making the short film. “Everything about it was the worst idea you can imagine. I would’ve been held two feet up over a concrete floor, so if I’d fallen my head would have cracked open and I would’ve died. But all in the interest of making psychedelic art with Wayne and Miley Cyrus.”
Moby only has a handful of North American tour dates on his itinerary currently, including appearances in Buffalo, N.Y. on Aug. 14 and a set at Sacramento’s TBD Festival set for Oct. 3-5. Other acts on the TBD Fest bill include Blondie, Justice and Empire of the Sun.
