Moby is one of those artists who has withstood the test of time. At 52-years-old, he has over 15 albums under his belt and an infinite amount of remixes. He remains true to his craft and sound, and has become an inspiration for both emerging and established artists alike.
With such a long, successful career, Moby has seen and done it all, and with that comes a type of wisdom unparalleled by many artists in the game today. On the heels of his autobiography Porcelain, Moby has reflected on his time around the sun and what he has accomplished so far.
It is this self-reflection he seeks to bring to a new Netflix series called Once In A Lifetime Sessions. Billboard Music had a chance to sit down with the artist to discuss the new Netflix Special and this is what Moby had to say about it:
When I was growing up, I assumed that writing memoirs and looking back nostalgically at one’s life was was something that you did in your 80s or 90s, sitting in some sort of Victorian house in the north of England drinking tea and remembering things that happened in a prior century — and I guess in this case, it did happen in a prior century later.
Having such a profound and influential life must be surreal to someone who never thought he would be a big deal in the music community. But looking back at what one has accomplished and what they have brought to the world, seeing how they have affected people throughout the years is exactly what a fulfilled life looks like. And that’s what this Netflix series is all about, going beyond the music to unearth and expose the people who have impacted the world the most.
Available on Netflix now, check out the series which also showcases artists such as Noel Gallagher, Nile Rodgers, and TLC. Take a look at the clip below to get a sense for the magnitude of such a reflection from a wonderful musician and you can catch the full episode on Netflix.
