THIS LITTLE UNDERGROUND
In constitution alone, Bob Moses
(Oct. 27, The Social) already stands apart in the vast EDM sea. Not a single dude but rather a duo of Brooklyn-based Canadians, the rising Domino Records
-worthy act merges house music with more sung forms of pop, the respective interests of the two members when they first joined forces. And they just made their Orlando debut.
Their sound – dance music that’s more suited to a sleek chaise longue than a sweaty club – rides the chill late-night frequency but introduces warm human pulse
into the style’s usually ice-cool veins. The effect is fusion but not Frankenstein, and adds a welcome sense of song to the perpetual house groove.
And in terms of show, they would’ve qualified for the smart column of electronic acts just for showing some visual flair with their impressive light display. But on stage, these guys are even band-legit
because they came packing a live drummer and guitar.
All of it unites in a convincingly dimensional and integrated stage experience. Even more noteworthy, it’s testament to Bob Moses as an exceptionally rare case of an EDM act that actually sounds better live.
