For the sophomore release on Moby’s new label, Always Centered at Night, the label brings down the pace and intensifies the mood on a gorgeous single from Moby and serpentwithfeet entitled “On Air.” An experimental musician based in Los Angeles, serpentwithfeet adds his silky neo-soul-inspired voice to a song filled with pure emotion.
The accompanying video, directed by Moby and LA-based filmmaker Mike Formanski, conveys a sense of hope with the beauty of daily life on display as a companion to the music.
“One of the greatest things about Always Centered at Night is working with remarkable singers. serpentwithfeet has an approach to music and vocals that I find to be fascinating and beautiful,” says Moby.
Moby launched his new label earlier this year with the aim to do something uncompromising – to make music that is emotional, atmospheric, and potentially beautiful. With this ethos, the label brought us its debut release “Medusa,” a collaboration between Moby and Grammy-nominated artist and Doja Cat collaborator Aynzli Jones.
Always Centered at Night will not be going for a billion streams on Spotify, and there is a constant subtext within the DNA of the label: Moby’s great disdain for what he calls: “our current, fear-driven, algorithmic-based culture.” The label will be a new kind of record label that ignores that idea, completely.
Moby is a multi-platinum selling, multi-award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, author, and animal rights activist.
