about

Fresh off the energy from last summer’s „Key Change“, described by The Fader as “a blissfully maniacal pastiche of sun-drop jazz”, Mocky has opened the vaults to bring us the third installment of his “Moxtape” series.
Featuring contributions from Jamie Lidell, Mr. Oizo, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and perfectly capturing the communal spirit and eclectic energy of his monthly „Mocky and friends“ jam sessions on the rooftop of the Ace Hotel where artists as diverse as Kelela, Feist or Lianne La Havas have surprised audiences with improvised performances with Mocky's band and where "the only plan is not to have a plan", as Mocky puts it. This has resulted in one of L.A.'s most treasured below-the-radar music nights that was recently discovered by Quincy Jones' Production Company and brought to LA's Lyric Theatre to rave reviews. „I was eager to bring some of the Berlin rawness to L.A. where everything can be so polished and pro all the time", says the Canadian by way of Berlin. "There's got to still be a way to break the rules!"
And you can hear this "rule breaking" on the genre defying new Moxtape which features the luscious strings and warm instrumentation we’ve come to expect from this versatile multi-instrumentalist. The former "Pre-DM" (as Mocky characterizes his „electronic“ phase in Berlin in the early 2000nds) producer keeps things organic yet modern as he warms the heart with his sweet vocals on “Exception to the Rule”, a radiant track that features breakout artists Joey Dosik on keyboards and Moses Sumney on background vocals. Mocky also recruits old pal Jamie Lidell for a vocal appearance on “Keep Feelin' This”, bringing back memories of their classic work together on Lidell’s “Multiply”. Also included as a bonus cut is DJ/filmmaker Mr. Oizo’s massive remix of „Key Change“ favourite “Soulful Beat” and for all those audiophiles out there, a strings-only Miguel Atwood-Ferguson stem edit of „When Paulie Gets Mad“.

Track Name: Keep Feelin' This (feat. Jamie Lidell)
Keep Feelin' This

(Jamie)
How did everything get so serious?
How did everything get so real?
I know the best things happen when we play
So how did everything get so real?
Tonight I'm gonna dance
Forget about my sorrow
I'm gonna put down my bags
YEAH don’t worry about them 'til tomorrow

(Mocky)
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this

(Jamie )
If I listened to the voices in my head
I doubt that I would ever make it out of bed
And I'd never get to see your smiling face
I know the best things happen when we play
But there's a world of worry in my way

(Mocky)
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
(repeat)

(Jamie )
We can get serious when the morning comes
But right now
It's time to light it up just a little a bit
OH!
It's time to light it up just a little a bit
We can pick it all up when the light comes around
But now
It's time to light it up just a little a bit
OH!
It's time to light it up just a little a bit

(Mocky)
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
Just wanna keep feelin' this
(repeat)

(Jamie)
How did everything get so serious?
How did everything get so real?
I know the best things happen when we play
So how did everything get so real?
Tonight I'm gonna dance
Forget about my sorrow
I'm gonna put down my bags
YEAH don’t worry about them 'til tomorrow
Track Name: Exception To The Rule
Exception To The Rule

I've heard love will
Bring your eyes to tears
And I've heard tales of
Men being filled with fear so
Tell me will you still be
Tell me will you still be
My exception to the rule
Tell me will you still be
Tell me will you still be
My exception to the rule

I've heard talk of hearts being broke in two
But when it was my turn you always had the glue
Tell me will you still be
Tell me will you still be
My exception to the rule
Tell me will you still be
Tell me will you still be
My exception to the rule

That says "love don't last, it gets the last laugh
But you never can tell 'cause it moves too fast"

Tell me will you still be
Tell me will you still be
My exception to the rule
Tell me will you still be
Tell me will you still be
My exception to the rule

That says "love don't last, it gets the last laugh
But you never can tell 'cause it moves too fast"
Will you be
My exception to the rule
Track Name: Put It Away
Put It Away

All your troubles at the end of the day
All your heartache, just put it away
At the end of the day, put it away
Just give it away
Put it away
Forget your worries, put it away
Forget your heartache at the end of the day
All your troubles, put it away
Just put it away
Put it away
Just put it away
At the end of the day
Put it away
Put it away
Track Name: Read My Mind (Nothing To Fear)
Read My Mind (Nothing To Fear)

We've both waited alone but
One of these days I'll come home
When the sun shines and the bird sings
They're ready for whatever life brings

Ooh ooh won't you read my mind
Ooh ooh won't you read my mind
'cause a little bird got into my ear
And told me if you'd hold me tight we'd have nothing to fear

With a little luck we can make a new start
Just let a little sunlight get in your heart
I know I know that always what they all say
But no one ever said it to you on a day like today

Ooh ooh won't you read my mind
Ooh ooh won't you read my mind
'cause a little bird got into my ear
And told me if you'd hold me tight we'd have nothing to fear

With a little luck we can make a new start
Just let a little sunlight get in your heart

Ooh ooh won't you read my mind
Ooh ooh won't you read my mind
Ooh ooh can't you read my mind
'cause a little bird got into my ear
And told me if you'd hold me tight we'd have nothing to fear
