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.
U Street Music Hall co-owner Will Eastman has had a successful year as a member of D.C.-based Volta Bureau; most notably with the release of their sophomore single "Alley Cat" which stayed within the Beatport Indie Dance top 100 for over a year. Volta Bureau's recent work includes a remix for Icona Pop's "I Love It," noted by MTVHive as "noir techno for fans of upbeat funk," a partnership with Gotta Dance Dirty in the release of "On Your Own," and their August release, "Hot," now available on iTunes.
As a solo artist, Eastman has recently gained much blog and DJ support with the release of "Shouldna Left U"; an R&B-tinged deep house collaboration with Ozker (Sleeper Cell Productions, D.C). Both Volta Bureau and Eastman are looking forward to debut several new releases and remixes in 2013.
