Gathering My Pieces…

artwork In 2011 Moby released the album, “Destroyed” and took us back to his glorious age, when “Play” and “18” were the only things that you could listen to, in air plays and clubs. Atmospheric, downtempo and electronica of the finest kind and with urban roots. We are very happy to have works like this in our hands. The hunt for the great white whale continues… 4/5!
