This will be Blisspop’s second inauguration party with Moby! The first time around Moby and Eastman performed together at the 9:30 Club, in 2009. If you were there, then you know about the insanity that ensued; the packed house and the power outage that lead to an impromptu drum performance by Moby and Eastman, banging on nothing but plastic garbage cans, beer kegs and metal sheets until the lights came on.

Moby is well known for bringing electronic music to the mainstream; starting with the release of his 1991 single “Go.” Since “Go,” Moby has sold over 20,000,000 records worldwide and has co-written, produced and remixed for Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Daft Punk, Pet Shop Boys and New Order. Moby has received nominations for five Grammy Awards and has won several MTV Video Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, in addition to being noted by MTV as, “one of the most controversial figures in techno music” and as “one of the most important dance music figures of the early ’90s.”
U Street Music Hall co-owner Will Eastman has had a successful year as a member of D.C.-based Volta Bureau; most notably with the release of their sophomore single “Alley Cat” which stayed within the Beatport Indie Dance top 100 for over a year. Volta Bureau’s recent work includes a remix for Icona Pop’s “I Love It,” noted by MTVHive as “noir techno for fans of upbeat funk,” a partnership with Gotta Dance Dirty in the release of “On Your Own,” and their August release, “Hot,” now available on iTunes.
As a solo artist, Eastman has recently gained much blog and DJ support with the release of “Shouldna Left U”; an R&B-tinged deep house collaboration with Ozker (Sleeper Cell Productions, D.C). Both Volta Bureau and Eastman are looking forward to debut several new releases and remixes in 2013.
