Moby - Alice
Artist MobySong title Alice
Moby will release new single 'Alice' on 17th March 2008, it's the first track to be taken from his new album Last Night out on 31st March 2008 released through Mute Records. Alice is a futuristic Hip Hop track features Smokey and S.O. Simple of Nigerian hip-hop group 419 Squad and Aynzli.
"The song 'Alice' started with a mistake. There's this effect that I have, a very old proto-distortion pedal, and I was playing a bassline through it and there was something broken on the distortion pedal and it made this weird but fantastic feedback. So this song starts with this weird bass feedback, which is just a really happy mistake because it wasn't originally supposed to sound like that.
After writing the track I then sent it out to Aynzli and the 419 Squad, who contributed their amazing vocals. Aynzli's style is so fast and so dense and fluid, I think that he's going to have a remarkable career. And what makes the 419 Squad so special is that they go back and forth between Yoruban and English (as they're from Nigeria)."
The fifteen track album was recorded in Moby's home studio in Manhattan NY and mixed by Dan Grech-Maguerat who has also worked with Radiohead and the Scissor Sisters.
