Moby – “Rio” (Duran Duran Cover)
Among the contributors to Manimal Vinyl’s upcoming Duran Duran tribute comp Making Patterns Rhyme are Warpaint, Little Dragon, Austra, Juliette Lewis, Crocodiles, and Moby. America’s favorite bald vegan’s version of “Rio” turns the bright, summery synthpop song into a foreboding trance-inflected dance cut with seductive female vocals. Hear what he’s done with it below.
Moby’s “Rio” will hit iTunes on 6/3 via Manimal, and Making Patterns Rhyme will follow sometime later this year.
