about

"Everyone loves a good producer, but what's even better is a producer that is also a multi-instrumentalist. Canadian songster Mocky is no stranger to this music combination. His career spans over a decade with writing and production credits for artists like Kelela and Feist, both who have contributed to his new EP Living Time: The Moxtape Vol. II. The EP eliminates the electronic sound that Mocky has produced in the past to create a timeless collection that is necessary in the age of trap beats. When asked about the album's non-electronic feel he said, "In 2015, we are getting to the point where 'the machine' has become the arbiter of emotion, and intention is at an all-time low."

Living Time: The Moxtape Vol. II is an impressive body of work. The tracks presented are smooth instrumentals with minimal vocals. When there is singing such as in the songs, "Howling at the Moon" and "Living Time," the eerie vocals gently blends with the instruments. The 6-track EP ends with "Sweet Things," which is a perfect arrangement complete with 6 simple words. It's the kind of track samples are made from. Mocky's full-length album Key Change is due out later this year."
