“Boyd has played a central role in the emergence of the new London scene, both as a producer—most notably of singer Zara McFarlane's uplifting celebration of the music of the city's Caribbean diaspora, Arise (Brownswood, 2017)—and, with saxophonist Binker Golding, as co-leader and co-producer of the ferocious semi-free group Binker and Moses. The band's three albums—Dem Ones (2015), Journey To The Mountain Of Forever (2017) and Alive In The East? (2018), all released on Gearbox—are high water marks in the development of the scene.

Displaced Diaspora revisits recordings made at the same 2015 sessions that produced Boyd's jazz / electronica / hip hop mash-up "Rye Lane Shuffle," the Four Tet and Floating Points-mixed 12" single that shook up London dance floors in 2016 (and which has gone on to fetch large sums on the second-hand market). "Rye Lane Shuffle" is included here along with its flipside, "Drum Dance." Other tracks feature scene cadre-members McFarlane, saxophonist and bata player Kevin Haynes and his Grupo Ellegua, trombonist Nathaniel Cross, who arranged "Rye Lane Shuffle," saxophonist Nubya Garcia, tubaist Theon Cross (from Shabaka Hutchings' Sons of Kemet), and keyboardist Joe Armon-Jones.” – All About Jazz
