Readers of house and techno trailblazer Moby‘s recently released memoir Porcelain know that his track “Go” opened countless doors for the producer during his rise to stardom. The autobiography chronicles Moby’s early ascension during 1989-1999, dedicating an entire chapter to “Go” where the artist layers “Laura Palmer’s Theme” from Twin Peaks over the B-side to his debut single “Mobility.” The widely popular 90s rave anthem played an instrumental role in Moby’s ability to globalize the dance music genre to its current widespread acclaim.
