DJ Jazzy Jeff and James Poyser Remix Moonchild's Sensual Slow-Burner "The Truth" [Premiere]
In the depths of last winter, DJ Jazzy Jeff and James Poyser took a snowed-in moment to put their brains together. The result: a potent and proper four-track EP, aptly-dubbed, Snow Beats. And while the two Philly legends are certainly no strangers, it was a rare glimpse at how to madcap music men get busy in the booth, even if the catalyst was sheer boredom.
Today we have the pleasure of bringing you the latest link-up between Jazzy Jeff and Poyser: a remix of Moonchild‘s sensual slow-burner “The Truth,” off their freshly-released, Please Rewind LP. Jeff feeds already swung drums a little more juice, while Poyser slips in some lilting rhodes comps; a nice little fireside score for those looking to get close in these icy winter nights. Hear Jazzy Jeff and The Roots’ James Poyser add a few layers to Moonchild’s “The Truth” down below.
If you’ve been sleeping on the LA-based group, we implore you to pick up a copy of their new album Please Rewind on iTunes and get learned. Keep your ear to the ground for more from the three-piece in the weeks and months ahead.
