Move D on the Digital Music Era: "Ideally, Music Should Be For Free"

If electronic music can be called music's final frontier -- the veritable cutting edge of sonic innovation -- then it's artists like Move D (AKA David Moufang) who are its true trailblazers. If the German production veteran is still relatively obscure (as far as mainstream EDM hype goes), it's only because he's been too busy pushing the possibilities of sound and genre in the studio for the past two decades to worry about trends.

Introduced to techno in 1989, Moufang would help pioneer the ambient genre along with Jonas Grossman as Deep Space Network. But he's also amassed a prolifically eclectic body of work over the years, exploring the uncharted territories between ambient and avant-garde, disco, dub, house and techno, under a number of different monikers and collaborative side projects, including Reagenz, Magic Mountain High, Earth to Infinity, and, of course, Move D.
