South London drummer, producer, and composer Moses Boyd drops the follow up to his acclaimed 2018 ‘Displaced Diaspora’ album with ‘Dark Matter’, a bold, attention grabbing set that further enhances his reputation. The punchy opener ‘Stranger Than Fiction’ is an urgent, brusque slab of Afrobeat laced funk that slips into a brief interlude before re-emerging as the snaking horn-lead ‘BTB’. The warped broken beat of ‘Shades of You’ finds the voice of Poppy Ajudha gracing its rhythms while the twisted jazz of ‘2 Far Gone’ finds Joe Armon Jones on piano amidst a swirling 2-step Garage groove that sounds vintage. The more mellow ‘Nommo’s Descent’ offers some respite for the machine gun tempo of the previous cuts but even so, the rhythms never settle and bubble under the surface. Another triumph for contemporary UK jazz.
