Voodoo Child is the alter ego (one of five, in fact) of Moby, allowing him to make what he describes as “hard, sexy, straightforward dance music”. Baby Monkey is his second full-length outing and was apparently designed to remind him of “the best underground clubs that I had been to over the last couple of years”. It thus lays no claims to experimentalism and is rather about tapping into the memory of shared euphoria. Its connection to the tough, Detroit techno of Jeff Mills is obvious, but standout tracks “Electronics”, “Harpie” and “Strings” rather recall the British post-techno of Orbital and Underworld. An interesting addition to the artist’s varied oeuvre, rather than a vital record in its own right.
