Moby 'Last Night'


After the meditative electronica of 2002’s 18 and the singer-songwriter moves of 2005’s Hotel, Moby returns to the dance floor with a vengeance on his new album Last Night, released on April 1, 2008. Spanning hands-in-the-air, Smiley-faced rave anthems, cosmic Giorgio Moroder-styled Euro-disco, hip-hop both old school and underground, and downtempo, end-of-the-night ambience, Last Night is a dance music tour de force that looks back at Moby’s deep roots in the club scene at the same time as it embraces the future.

Last Night is conceptually structured like an epic night out, moving from the building excitement of the early evening to peak-time euphoria to 2 am confusion and the blissful peace of the early morning New York city sunrise. The album was recorded in moby's home studio in New York and features a number of guest vocalists and includes the original 70's MC Grandmaster Caz one of the writers of "Rappers Delight," Sylvia from Kudu, the UK's Aynzli Jones plus Smokey and So Simple from the Nigerian 419 Squad. The album’s final track, the title track, features Sylvia Gordon from the underrated New York band Kudu.

Last Night was released in the US on April 1, and is available at fine music shops.
