While he passed on DJing Donald Trump's inauguration ball last month, Moby's been keeping busy recently, releasing the politically-charged video for his song "Erupt & Matter" (from the producer's 2016 album These Systems Are Falling with The Void Pacific Choir) and winning accolades for his Los Angeles vegan restaurant.

For his latest EP, Black Lacquer, the electronic veteran's teamed up with Fool's Gold Records to have artists from the label rework a handful of his greatest hits. We've already heard Nick Catchdubs' take on "Porcelain," and today we're premiering High Klassified's remix of "Natural Blues," which originally appeared on Moby's 1999 album Play.


Keeping the track's memorable sample of American folk singer Vera Hall's "Trouble So Hard" intact, the Montreal beatmaker adds a bouncy house backbone, making it perfect for warehouse after-hours or one of his infamous Laval house parties. "My mom used to listen to Moby when I was younger so doing this remix brought back memories," High Klassified told THUMP via email.

Listen to it below and pre-order Black Lacquer here before it comes out Friday.
