Moxie Black - Closer (J Dilla vs Death Cab For Cutie)

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
The Dust Will Settle
Album:
How Did This Happen?

Time for a pop quiz: what do the late, great J Dilla and indie-rock veterans Death Cab for Cutie have in common? Until recently, the correct answer would have been “Nothing whatsoever,” but Moxie Black have changed that for good with their latest feature, Closer. The final leak off their forthcoming, Booth-sponsored full-length, this bonus track finds The Dust Will Settle temporarily replacing group member Dekk behind the boards, blending Dilla’s Time: The Donut of the Heart with elements of Death Cab’s Transatlanticism as vocalist Illa implores a woman to stay by his side so that they can “get [their] love back on track.” This record’s influences may be disparate, but there’s no denying its moody, intricately-layered appeal. If you’re digging this boundary-busting mash-up, you’ll be able to hear Closer and much more (including past features So Much Better and Risky Bizness) on Moxie Black’s How Did This Happen? street album, set to hit our mixtape page for streaming and free download this Wednesday, August 17.
