Voodoo Child, Baby Monkey
LP, Mute www.moby.com This is Moby's second release under the Voodoo Child name. The first was a hard techno release that came out in 1991. This one was born at an underground party in Glasgow in 2002. As Moby says "... The DJ's were playing hard, sexy, straightforward dance music, and it was perfect ... when I arrived home next day I decided to make a simple, straightforward dance record." And this is it. In some ways it is a hark back to more simple days but in other ways, such as the harmony, it is not. This comes and goes though, and there is quite a lot that is simple as MIDI gets. Some of the sparingly applied FX are also an update on the old sound. Still and all, the point of such a thing as this is not the search for B flat minors or grophex rekusers. It's whether it will get you on your feet and keep you moving. If any part of "hard, sexy, straightforward dance record" sounds like you, it probably will. (thunderfinger)
