For the past couple weeks, everyone here at the FILTER office has had one thing on their mind: Culture Collide. It's the eve of our music festival, which brings in renowned artists from across the globe together, but while gearing up for kick-off, many of us have been spinning the newest album of one of our favorite artists and fellow LA residents, Moby.
Not only are we thrilled for Moby’s upcoming Culture Collide Creative Summit panel appearance, but when our Guide cover star also decided to drop off some videos going behind the making of Innocents, we couldn’t help ourselves from passing these gems on to you good folks, our readers.
The first pair of videos in the series goes behind the album’s sunshiney moment (and possibly one of our favorite tracks), “A Perfect Life.” In the videos, Moby talks about producing the drums and choirs for the song, how a sample of military guns made their way into the percussion and the transformation of an ensemble of 8 singers into a majestic choir of 150.
Check out Moby's “behind the scenes” below and don’t forget to catch his appearance at the Culture Collide Creative Summit panel Thursday at 12:00pm in the Taix Champagne Room. Moby’s latest album Innocents is out now, via Little Idiot/ Mute.
