Moby - Play


This one is going to be a quick-hit today. For the past couple of weeks, I've posted some "fun" music that is decidedly not brutal. There's a coming wave of super-heavy music about to be posted to this website and I agree with the old METALLICA theory that the quieter stuff makes the heavy stuff heavier. With that in mind, I'm wrapping up this string of non-brutal music updates with a classic; Play by Moby.

Play is the $5 Foot-Long of music. You've heard it before and there are no surprises but there are no failures either. Moby made a classic EDM record by trying not to sound like it was recorded on the U.S.S. Enterprise. Many of the individual instrumental tracks were recorded by Moby himself and everything that was programmed had a real-world sound in mind. This is techno for people that don't eat molly everyday. Is it the most underground or kvlt or whatever release of all-time? Absolutely not. Every song on the record was licensed for TV comercials at one point. While you can knock Play for being too mainstream, you can't knock it musically. Take a listen for yourself and find out exactly how comfortable this record sounds.
