Free Moby MP3

It’s Free Music Friday, which means we’ve got another dose of free electronic music for you.

Check this out: Moby has released a free MP3, a remix of Mistake, from his new album Wait For Me.


In making Wait For Me, Moby decided to forego expensive studios, state-of-the-art equipment, big name guest artists, and graphic designers and image consultants.

“There’s something so relaxing about doing everything yourself, and not trying to second-guess the market,” Moby says. “I don’t know if anyone’s going to like this record, I don’t know if it’s going to sell anything, but it’s nice to try to do things for the right reasons and not give a second thought to radio play or sales – just make a record because you want to make a record.”

This DiY approach pervades all of Wait For Me, from the recording process to the album cover.

“A friend of mine shot the photos,” Moby says. “I did the art work. I made the record in my bedroom, and mixed it with a crazy punk rocker who got lost on the way to the studio every night.”

  1. I like the somewhat 80s electroclash vibe, which harkens back to Moby's Last Night (and earlier). It's catchy and melodic, wouldn't have belonged on the mostly-downtempo album, but I've been hoping Moby would veer off into more adventurous directions. Wait For Me, despite descriptions, didn't offer much new compared to, say, his earlier ambient outings. It's kind of like he does a mostly upbeat album and then a downbeat one and so on… I'd love to hear his signature string melodies (Yamaha SY-22 I think?) warped into a fresh context.

    My fave Moby tracks to this day are "Shining" and "Arp" — interestingly, both of them have a lot of melodic and rhythm progression not found in his other works, which tend to stick to one idea. (Great in many cases but I've a yen for the eclectic evolution.)
