Iconic producer Moby is selling his entire record collection for charity.
Made in collaboration with Reverb LP, an online marketplace for buying and selling records, the sale will feature Moby’s personal copies of nearly every record he has made throughout his career. Among these are two first pressing of ‘Play‘, rare test pressing and signed reissues of ‘Play‘ and ‘18‘, and promo recordings for ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad‘ and ‘That’s When I Reach For My Revolver‘, plus many more.
There are also hundreds of techno, house and hip-hop 12-inches from the ’80s and ’90s Moby carried around the world and played during his DJ sets, with many of them still featuring his handwritten markers. These include Inner City’s 1988 classic ‘Big Fun’ and Acen’s 1992 breakbeat hardcore cut ‘Trip II the Moon – Part 1’.
“These are all the records that I bought and loved and played and carried all around the world,” Moby explained. “I would rather you have them than me, because if you have them, you’ll play them, you’ll love them, and the money will go to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.”
Moby’s Reverb LP Shop launches Thursday 14th June, with 100% of his proceeds going directly to The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an organization that aims to dramatically change the way doctors treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer.
