Moby, Lucky Date – Delay [Spinnin Records]
A far cry from the Moby we knew in 1991, Delay is a massive electro house track released on Spinnin that does a service to the genre as a whole, but not Moby’s producing and songwriting ability. As an electro track, it’s loud, intense, and uses lots of different types of synths to form a cohesive, and wild piece of music. It’s definitely very danceable, and gives a boost to the energy of any DJ set or performance. However, what with Moby’s long history of producing and his ability to craft great melodies, I expected a bit more from him. The track gets quite repetitive, and honestly it isn’t very imaginative. I understand that this may be where the money is, but Moby is a legend and can do a lot better. Give it a listen.
