Today, Moby announced his first DJ gig in over five years to benefit Los Angeles’ “Vegans of L.A. Food Bank. He’ll be spinning at Los Angeles’ Gold Diggers on Sunday, October 29 from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.” Additionally, Moby’s good friend KCRW DJ Raul Campos will join him at the decks.
Says Moby, “In a world of excessively high ticket prices, I thought it would be nice to play for $5 and give all of the money to one of my favorite local charities.”
The first 50 tickets sold are guaranteed entry at $5, then there will be an RSVP waitlist of 300 once those go. Being on the RSVP list does not guarantee entry. Tickets and RSVP list can be accessed HERE.
The event is being sponsored by Moby’s new label Always Centered at Night. Thus far, the label has released “medusa,” a collaboration between Moby and Doja Cat collaborator Aynzli Jones, “on air“ with serpentwithfeet, “fall back” with Akemi Fox, “ache for“ with José James, “transit” with rising Dutch-Sudanese singer Gaidaa, and most recently “should sleep“ with Burundian singer J.P. Bimeni. Multiple releases on ACAN are planned for 2023 and beyond.
About Always Centered At Night:
It’s been a stellar debut year for always centered at night, with collective streams hitting 15M across platforms. Moby aims to do something uncompromising – to make music that is emotional, atmospheric, and potentially beautiful, showcasing voices from across the world. 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, on air with serpentwithfeet, fall back with rising star Akemi Fox, ache for with José James, a critically acclaimed jazz artist for the hip-hop generation and, most recently, transitwith rising Dutch-Sudanese singer Gaidaa.
Multiple releases on ACAN are planned for 2023 and beyond. The label will not be going for a billion streams on Spotify, and there is a constant subtext within the DNA of the label: Moby’s disappointment for what he calls: “our current, fear-driven, algorithmic-based culture.” The label is 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. To learn more about Always Centered at Night please visit https://www.alwayscenteredatnight.com/.
