Following the recent announcement of his debut solo album Dark Matter, out 14th February via his own label Exodus Records, and a sold-out show at legendary London club Fabric, South London producer and composer Moses Boyd has revealed a brand new single “Shades of You” featuring rising star Poppy Ajudha. The sparkling track is one of Dark Matter’s standout euphoric moments, driven by a bouncing synth-bass groove coupled with Theon Cross on Tuba and Poppy’s soaring vocals.
Dark Matter is Moses’ debut fully fledged album and sees him take center stage as
producer and band leader, with features including previous collaborators Obongjayar & Klein alongside some familiar faces from the London jazz scene including Nubya Garcia & mentor Gary Crosby OBE. The project is a significant step forward in Boyd’s ongoing evolution, showcasing his growing talents as a producer and composer, accomplished musicianship as a drummer, plus a unique ability to successfully meld jazz with other contemporary influences.
