Moby (DJ Set)
Moby was born in New York City, but grew up in Connecticut, where he started making music when he was 9 years old. He started out playing classical guitar and studied music theory, and then went on to play with seminal Connecticut hardcore punk group 'The Vatican Commandoes' when he was 14. He then played with post-punk band 'AWOL' while studying philosophy at the University of Connecticut and Suny Purchase. He started DJing while attending college, and was a fixture in the late 80's New York house and Hip-Hop scenes, DJing at clubs such as Mars, Red Zone, MK, and the Palladium.
He released his first single, 'Go' in 1991(listed as one of Rolling Stone's best records of all time), and has been making albums ever since. His own records have sold over 20,000,000 copies worldwide, and he's also produced and remixed scores of other artists, including David Bowie, Metallica, The Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, among others.
Moby has toured extensively, playing well over 3,000 concerts in his career. He has also had his music used in hundreds of different films, including 'Heat', 'Any Given Sunday', 'Tomorrow Never Dies', and 'The Beach', among others.
Currently he's touring in support of his most recent album, 'Destroyed', as well as working closely with a variety of different charities, including the Humane Society and the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function.
DJ and producer Will Eastman’s sets of house, techno, disco and left-field gems have earned him the title “one of D.C.’s titan DJs” from the Washington Post. A member of numerous bands since age 15, Eastman brings a fiercely independent spirit to his DJ and music production approach, pushing boundaries with new sounds and unexpected juxtapositions. His releases on Main Course Records and remixes have received broad support from a diverse range of DJs from Daniel Avery and Aeroplane to Tiesto and Fatboy Slim, and have been featured by NPR, BBC Radio 1, FACT Magazine, and Urb among many others. Besides creating music, Eastman is co-owner of U Street Music Hall, named a top 10 dance club in America by Rolling Stone and “best dance club in the region” by the Washington Post, and in 2014 he organized the Union BBQ festival. In 2000, Eastman founded DC's longest standing emerging dance music club night and blog, Blisspop, while working during the day at the National Museum of American History where he documented the history of the electric guitar, sound recording technologies and the work of Nobel Prize winners until dedicating himself to a DJ and music production career. 2015 will see several new releases and a heavy travel itinerary of DJ dates for this D.C. favorite.
