The Chopstars & Barry Jenkins - "Purple Moonlight"
Moonlight director, Barry Jenkins, showed his appreciation for the slowed-down vibe of chopped and screwed music recently by not only including it in his Oscar-winning film but by excitedly tweeting about the tribute soundtrack that Houston's OG Ron C and fellow Chopstar DJ Candlestick honored his work with. Entitled "Purple Moonlight", the chopped up not slopped up adaptation includes songs from and inspired by the film and composer Nicholas Britell's mostly classical score.
You can catch OG Ron C and The Chopstars in Austin soon where they are hosting an official Still Tippin' SXSW Texas artist showcase. Performers are expected to include Killa Kyleon, DJ Chose, Beat King, Dice Soho, Imaj and Mo3.
