Mobley recently released Hands Up, a one-of-a-kind album that couples his whimsical beats and music with the eclectic and deft songwriting of a talented posse of collaborators. Hands Up is a throwback to the old-school rap of the 80s and 90s—a trifecta of infectious grooves, clever lyricism, and catchy hooks. The album is available for download on iTunes.
Mobley’s credits include the theme song of Deadly Affairs; placements in American television series The Office and Californication; award-winning video game Watch Dogs, which features Mobley’s acclaimed remix of Iggy Pop and the Stooges’ Gimme Danger; film trailer music for Argo, The Wolverine, and Carrie; and sound design for revolutionary iPhone app Clear.
Mobley was born in Baltimore to a family of artists and musicians. Entirely self-taught, he worked as a musician in New York until turning to full-time composing fifteen years ago. “Sound,” he explains, “is my way of connecting with people.”
