Moby takes a trip down memory lane in a documentary that covers his life in ’90s New York.

Moby has been a busy boy. Just in case you need a refresher: He recently opened a vegan restaurant in LA, he’s just published an autobiography (it covers his early years as an artist in New York), he’s dropped four free hours of music for mediation on his Bandcamp and now he’s back with a “visual memoir”. It’s a video documentary complement to his written autobiography that returns to the city where he was born. It has him pounding the concrete while narrating his first encounters with early rave culture in a New York City that he describes as a “filthy, disfunctional, wonderful, degenerate paradise”. Moby candidly speaks about popping pills, S&M dungeons and early suicidal thoughts. In other words, it’s a jam-packed watch. Check it out above.

And, if that’s not enough documentary footage for you, then check out this one about Kraftwerk, this one about electronic music and this one about Richie Hawtin’s formative years in Canada.
