Moby’s Drum Machine Fetish

Saturday Synth Porn Special Vintage Drum Machine Edition: Can you have too much of a good thing?

This image captures the current state of Moby’s drum machine collection.

“It is my goal in life to have one of every old drum machine ever made,” says Moby, “And, presumptously, I think I’m getting close.”

“You’re right,” adds Moby. “At some point, I should make a documentary film about drum machines. Possibly entitled: Drum Machines: The Documentary That No One Will Ever Watch.”

Here’s to wallowing in excess. And, I think I can speak for a lot of readers and say that, yes…..we’d actually watch that documentary.

  1. All I have to say is I love Drum Machines and his collection. My only gripe is him having them stacked on those crappy shelves like that. He got some real museum pieces there.

  2. I wonder whether this is just a collection for collecting's sake or if he actually uses them if he feels like it. If he doesn't he'd better sell them to people who would use them. What use is a musical instrument if no one plays or even records it?

    I'd watch the documentary if he'd get a wig like Phil Spector or something. 😛

  3. i've been to his house, the reason why everything is in shelves like that is because he lives in a wee little pad in nyc, even his synths are in cool little pull out drawers. when i saw it, they were all "live" in that they were midi'd and audio'd up, but taking up very little room. the drum machines don't look that way however… very ergonomical setup he has actually.
