Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week’s episode, the boys are joined by Moses Boyd, the MOBO-Award winning jazz musician and DJ.
Briefly interrupting this week’s news agenda is X Factor alumni JLS, who have announced that they will be reuniting for an autumn tour.
Ari Lennox’s impulsive social media habits are put under the microscope, following the news that she’s taking a leave from social media after coming for Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King. The boys outline her good intentions while pointing out the misfires in her viral IG rant in defence of Kobe Bryant. The theme of artists making poor decisions continues as slowthai’s sexually inappropriate behaviour at the NME Awards is discussed.
Closing the episode is an in-depth discussion with Moses who’s been credited as a leading pioneer in the UK Jazz renaissance. Moses speaks about his new album ‘Dark Matter’, the snobbery and elitism that exists in the jazz scene among musicians, the impact of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’, the pivotal roles drummers play in jazz music and more.
