The Perfect Life Is All We Need

This is one of the most euphoric, everything- and- the- kitchen- sink remixes Andrew Weatherall produced during the last decade (and I'm shocked to find out on checking it was from as long ago as 2013). Another Perfect Life is a stunning, soaring, ecstatic sounding eight and a half minutes, Weatherall reshaping Moby and Wayne Coyne into something new. And while the lyrics appear to be about a junkie and hence the perfect life is actually an opiated delusion, it's as good a tune as any for today.

2013?! It's fair to say that Moby's best stuff in the past decade has for the most part been when he's handed his music to others to remix and reinvent. Perfect Life wasn't too bad, but Andrew Weatherall elevates it to the stratosphere, instantly creating the definitive version of the song. I love the juxtaposition of the lyrics and music; your description of the result as "an opiated delusion" is spot on. Great stuff.
