Moby Revives His Inner Voodoo Child





Dance guru Moby will resurrect his Voodoo Child moniker on January 27 with the release of an underground dance record called Baby Monkey on V2. Moby used the alias in the mid-'90s and released a series of singles and the two-song, 41-minute Demons/Horses. Moby, who recently produced "Early Mornin" from Britney's In The Zone, is using the album as a sort of return to his roots. "It was fun making a record without having to worry about any commercial pressure," Moby told MTV. "I don't expect it to sell anything. There aren't any singles, and we aren't going to make any videos. No promotion, just a nice dance record." The star will return to making Moby records in the coming months, during which time he will not be accepting any production offers, nor will he be recruiting any of his celebrity pals for collaborations. "This whole trend of celebrity collaborations feels more marketing-driven than music-driven," he explained. "What do people love more, music or marketing? So for my next record I'm probably not going to have any celebrity collaborations. I'd rather just make music for the love of music and not worry about the marketing."
