This is a fresh take on The Truth which featured on the ‘Handsome Boy Modeling School’ album a few years ago. Roisin Murphy of Moloko fame originally did the vocals, but the singer in this video, Esna, has a voice that sounds a lot more smooth than on the original. Most impressive about the whole thing is that it was done in an online jam session, linking young musicians from five continents who play in their bedrooms.
Prince Paul & Co take note…the truth may hurt, but this is dope.
This is an interview I did in 2003 when J-Live came to England as part of the ‘True School Academics’ tour with 7L and Esoteric. I know it’s a while ago, but it was part of a university radio show I was doing at the time and I’ve not shared it since. We did the interview just before the gig, as a walk ‘n talk on the way to the centre of Manchester. It’s about J-Live getting more exposure after the bootleg version of ‘The Best Part’ came out, about jazz and about the album ‘All of the Above’, which dropped at the time.
