|Nicholas Britell Moonlight (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) Limited Deluxe Moonlight 180gram Vinyl LP
;;Nicholas Britell achieved his Academy Award-nominated score by weaving orchestral elements with Southern rap, specifically Houston’s well-documented ‘chopped and screwed’ sound, where records are slowed down and cut to shreds, repurposing the music for alternative listening situations.
;;In writing the music for ‘Moonlight’ there were two distinct phases of the writing process. Britell would write music that inspired him from the early cuts of the film and his discussions with Jenkins; afterwards, Britell would begin to experiment with ‘chopping and screwing’ his own recordings.
;;“We didn’t take the hood to the arthouse, took the arthouse to the hood,” said the film’s director Barry Jenks. “Nick’s compositions pulse and rumble, creating a feeling in one’s chest that reminds me of the trunk rattling music of home.”
;;‘Moonlight’ won a Golden Globe for Best Picture and eight Academy Awards wins and nominations including Best Score and Best Picture.
;;LP pressed on heavyweight ‘Moonlight’ 180g coloured vinyl and housed in an extra thick 425g deluxe spined sleeve.
