TUNE Moses Boyd - Stranger Than Fiction (Radio Edit)
South London award-winning drummer, producer, composer and BBC 1Xtra resident DJ Moses Boyd shares a new song. "Stranger Than Fiction" follows last year's EP Displaced Diaspora and centers the artist as a producer, swells of jazz horns and bright interpolated loops coming together into a cohesive art piece.
Speaking on the inspiration for the song, Boyd says: "We're in a time where the state of our politics, environment, news and more feel like an alternate reality. And sadly the truth is often stranger than fiction.”
Nourished by London's unique rhythm, Moses Boyd seamlessly blends elements from grime, Detroit techno, afrobeat and minimal; becoming the key musical innovator in the jazz-influenced movement he helped to shape and spearhead.
