Moby - Last Night Remixed

With the success of Go - The Best of Moby: Remixed, Moby’s sixth album has also been given the remix treatment. The likes of D.Ramirez, Freemasons and Shapeshifters have all contributed to an album that although varied in the number of people remixing is a very focused disco record. From the first track it feels like some sort of Kylie extravaganza, the electro-disco beats permeating through each remix.
The Freemasons club mix of 'Disco Lies' is probably the biggest point of the album, containing just about everything on the ticklist to relieve the early 90s rave scene. It is an undeniably great remix, with Pete Tong, Carl Cox and Dave Spoon all being fans of the remix. Hitting similar heights is the Kris Menace remix of 'Ooh Yeah', with its swirling synth beats wrapping the feeling of a packed dancefloor around you. Tocadisco’s mix of 'Live For Tomorrow' is the closest we come to the ubiquitous Justice sound of current remixes, but it’s not long before the old school rave vocals kick in and the track zings off in another direction. One small gripe would be the that the range of songs isn’t large - only five or so of the original album’s track have had the treatment, but this undeniably moves Moby from the coffee house and back onto the dancefloor.
