Now we get to the “Play” era Moby.

From Moby’s own bio:

1999 – signs with v2 records(run by dan beck and richard sanders) and releases ‘play’ in may of 1999. ‘play’ sells poorly at first and gets mediocre reviews but eventually goes on to sell over 9,000,000 records worldwide.’play’ tour started in march of 1999 and continued until august of 2001.

2000 – touring. 4th and 5th ‘top of the pops’ performances for ‘natural blues’ and ‘porcelain’.
