DJ and musician Moby rose to fame in the early 1990s with his work on electronic dance music. His breakthrough came from the progressive house track “Go,” the remix b-side of his debut single “Mobility” released in 1990.
It was in 1999 that he gained international fame with his fifth studio album “Play,” which was electronica and house music-inspired. Moby has a total of 15 studio albums to date and has co-written, produced and remixed music for various artists such as David Bowie, Daft Punk, Pet Shop Boys, Britney Spears, New Order, Public Enemy, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica and Soundgarden.
Born Richard Melville Hall, Moby got his middle name and nickname “Moby” after the “Moby Dick” author Herman Melville, whom his parents said was his great-great-great-grand uncle. Apart from being a musician, Moby is also an entrepreneur, photographer, author and animal rights activist.
