Moses Boyd “Absolute Zero” (Exodus Recordings)
via Bleep: Moses Boyd has placed himself at the fertile nexus of jazz and club music in recent years.
Along with two solo releases, the drummer has collaborated with the likes of Four Tet and Floating Points as well as picking up MOBO and Worldwide Awards for his unique brand of liquid-limbed playing.
“Absolute Zero” sees Boyd incorporate some square-wave sourness into four tracks of dance-not-dance music. Though there are strains of instrumental grime both new and old across the EP, the dense drumming and pretty, faintly cosmic synth work pitches “Absolute Zero” somewhere between The Comet is Coming, Daphni and the seminal Gang Gang Dance/Tinchy Stryder collab ‘Princes’.
“Absolute Zero” released August 4, 2017 on Exodus Records
