Posting on Instagram, Moses said: “This music is so much bigger than me, and this award represents so many more people than just me.”

It’s been a particularly busy year for the young drummer and producer, releasing his second album as Binker & Moses, Journey to the Mountain of Forever on Gearbox Records, producing Zara McFarlane’s new LP Arise on Brownswood and, of course, releasing his second solo EP Absolute Zero, with The Vinyl Factory.

Boyd was short-listed for the gong at the MOBO Pre-Awards (which raises the curtain on the main event) alongside Cuban vocalist Daymé Arocena, Terrace Martin, Mr Jukes, and Clevland Watkiss.

Congratulations from everyone here at VF!
