New York City singer/songwriter and producer Moby was one of the most important electronic dance music figures of the '90s, whose crossover success helped bring the sound into the mainstream. He fused rapid disco beats with heavy distorted guitars, punk rhythms, and detailed productions, first breaking into the British Top Ten with the 1991 single "Go." He soon established himself in the U.S. as one of the scene's premier producers with 1995's Everything Is Wrong. After a brief foray into punk introduced fans to his other sonic inspirations, Moby transitioned into a new role as a crossover pop star with 1999's seminal blockbuster Play. While his chart success would not reach the same heights again, he maintained his fan base with steady output, swapping between traditional house tracks and expansive ambient collections into the 2020s. In 2021, he released the reimagined retrospective Reprise.
