ZHU and Bob Moses sound like the perfect match, don’t they? And it was only a matter of time before they both collabed together and dropped an amazing tracking mixing both their styles that have made them famous around the world.
Bob Moses (Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance) have announced their next release: a concept record for the club. Presented over six continuously mixed tracks, Desire—due out August 28, 2020 on Domino—is a love tale for the digital age: all about the positives and pitfalls of humanity’s driving wants, especially in these technology-driven times.
The title track, a hypnotic late-night collaboration with Grammy-nominated electronic musician ZHU, is out now with an interactive video directed by Owen Brown (creative agency CTRL5) and animation by Airplan Studio. The video is hosted on interactive streaming company Eko’s platform, with interactive production help from Particle3, and uses anaglyph imagery to display two different sides of desire. With the press of a button, viewers can switch between worlds of ‘pleasure’ and ‘pain’, manipulating a beating heart into a burning fire, lipstick into a bullet, joy into despair. It’s a deft and delicate dive into the ups and downs of desire.
To celebrate the launch of Desire, Bob Moses will play a B2B set with Blacklizt (a project by ZHU) as part of Insomniac’s Factory 93 “Secret Project Livestream” this Friday, July 17 at 4pm PT
