Moby has long been outspoken on political and environmental matters and he’s made his disdain for President Trump crystal clear. Because of this, his project Moby & the Void Pacific Choir has recently struck a nerve with the alt-right community.
Because of the political undertones of the recent Void Pacific Choir video “In This Cold Place,” a number of conservative outlets including American Thinker and Breitbart have covered the clip. Based on the outrage the DJ received, he has shared an anti-Moby press release from “John Miller,” the pseudonym Donald Trump adopted when he would pretend to be his own publicist.
Originally, on June 12, Moby & the Void Pacific Choir dropped a new album, These Systems Are Falling, accompanied by a parody press release “from the desk of John Miller” speaking out against the electronic artist. Then, following the album’s release on June 19, the DJ released a Steve Cutts animated music video for “In This Cold Place,” which features dystopian versions of cartoons that parallel American politics and a depiction of Trump as a Nazi robot.
In response to the reactions received from the video, Moby & the Void Pacific Choir have shared another statement from “John Miller,” who this time calls the video “terrorist” and Moby and Steve Cutts “fake news.” Read the full release below.
