Moonchild - The Truth (DJ Jazzy Jeff & James Poyser Remix) (thisismoonchild.bandcamp.com)
Out 13th
January, "The Truth (DJ Jazzy Jeff & James Poyser Remix)" is the
third, highly anticipated new single from LA neo-soul trio Moonchild.
Heralding a new remix from the Philly creatives, the single also
highlights the emotive “Nobody” from their debut album on Tru Thoughts,
'Please Rewind', which was officially released last year.



DJ Jazzy Jeff and James Poyser rework the “The Truth” by carving silvery
keys through a laid-back groove to create a smooth, future jazz vibe.
DJ Jazzy Jeff–the prolific DJ and Will Smith’s Fresh Prince partner–and
legendary producer, The Roots member and deft keys-player James Poyser
(who’s worked with Erykah, D’Angelo and Kanye to name a few) have come
together for a second time to remix the popular Moonchild track. They
first linked up to remix Moonchild’s self-released single “Be Free” in
2013 and have returned this time with comparable force. Reflecting on
the meanings behind the lyrics, Amber explains “I wrote about being
stressed out with life but having people who love you to get you
through.”



The B-side “Nobody” is a lush orchestral track with rich strings and
elated harmonies. Full of emotion, Navran’s voice croons with a gentle
and smoky charm. “The addition of strings, celeste, and French horn
really brought a cool orchestral sound to the track” Andris reveals. “We
hadn’t experimented with that sound before, but instantly fell in love
with it”. Moonchild’s music identifies with the markings of raw, young
talent; uninhibited arrangement and Navran’s honest life lessons, to
create a curiously mature yet refreshing sound.
