Premiere: Timo Maas & James Teej adapt Moby’s ‘Porcelain’ to after-hours dance floors
Moby’s music has inspired a vast influx of re-interpretations as of late in honor of his 13th album’s release. Adding themselves to the fray are seasoned collaborators Timo Maas and James Teej, who’ve put forth a deep, grooving “Broken China Dub” of “Porcelain.”
Both talents have worked frequently together in the past, and their chemistry is highly audible within their vision of “Porcelain.” Ensuring the original’s aesthetic is kept in place, Maas and Teej season its signature piano chords and dissonant synths with a throbbing bass-line and eclectic percussion. These subtle, yet crucial elements make “Porcelain” adaptable to the after hours dance-floor, hypnotizing listeners as it gently rolls along its course.
Timo & James’ rendition of “Porcelain” was initially shared as part of Rocket & Ponies’ celebration of Vinyl day. The piece reaches digital shelves come May 26.
