Voodoo Child is a pseudonym for Moby who, having played at Greenbelt for the last two years, is adding a growing number of CCM fans to his audience. But The End Of Everything' is a very different album from 'Everything Is Wrong', hence the pen name. This album is made up of simplistic, entirely electronic, instrumental tracks. No chart material here, but rather an album that ambient DJs will be able to put to good use, especially those of us involved in meditational alternative worship. Despite their simplicity the tracks have Moby's characteristic creativity which keeps you interested enough to see what's going to happen next. "Why make a Voodoo Child album and not a Moby album?" asks the artist, rhetorically. "Because if I make this type of music under a pseudonym it frees me up not to worry about touring and interviews and videos and photo shoots. I can just make a record that I would like in my life. Hopefully the people that buy it will find a place for it in their lives. It's one of my children and I love it dearly."
