The first being the ambient album, Long Ambients 1: Calm. on February 25, 2016, which was given away for free on his website Moby has also co-written, produced, and remixed music for David Bowie, Daft Punk, Mylène Farmer, Brian Eno, Pet Shop Boys, Britney Spears, New Order, Public Enemy, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, Soundgarden, and others.Richard Melville Hall was born in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City, to Elizabeth Mc Bride (née Warner), a medical secretary, and James Frederick Hall, a chemistry professor who died when Richard was two years old.Also in 1996, Moby contributed the song "Republican Party" to the AIDS benefit album Offbeat: A Red Hot Soundtrip produced by the Red Hot Organization.According to manager Eric Härle, the album almost ruined his career, because the new direction not only left audiences cold—with music media uninterested and his existing fan base largely alienated—but led to people being confused as to what kind of artist Moby really was.The "Mega Mix" was accompanied by visuals created in Toronto at Crush, led by director Kathi Prosser.In 2002 Moby released the follow-up to Play, 18, which earned gold and platinum awards in over 30 countries, and sold more than four million copies.
The DVD included various sections: "Live on TV", most of the music videos from the album (excluding "South Side" with Gwen Stefani), "Give An Idiot a Camcorder" (Moby was given a camcorder and the tape was later edited by Tara Bethune-Lea man), and an 88-minute "Mega Mix" of all the remixes created for the album.
According to Hall, his middle name and the nickname "Moby" were given to him by his parents because of an ancestral relationship to Moby Dick author Herman Melville: "The basis for Richard Melville Hall—and for Moby—is that supposedly Herman Melville was my great-great-great-grand uncle." Moby's first live solo performance was witnessed by future longtime manager Eric Härle, who later described the occasion to Hit Quarters by saying: "The music was amazing, but the show was riddled with technical mishaps.
It left me very intrigued and impressed in a strange way." Moby released his first singles for Instinct under several different names, such as Barracuda, Brainstorm, and UHF.
Moby toured extensively for both Play and 18, playing well over 500 shows in the course of four years.
He founded the Area: One Festival in 2001, a popular touring festival that features an eclectic range of musical genres.
