The mix, Purple Moonlight, gets the chopped not slopped treatment by OG Ron C and The Chopstars. The 21-track soundtrack includes Aretha Franklin's "One Step Ahead" and Kendrick Lamar's "Alright."
Moonlight director Barry Jenkins spoke on his love of chopped and screwed music in a 2016 interview with Pitchfork:
"In hip-hop, sometimes that pace is so fast that you miss things. I don’t mean literally miss lyrics, I just think there’s an emotion in what these cats are saying that gets by you. When you slow things down there’s this emotion, this yearning. I think in some ways, in Moonlight, we’re doing the same thing. There’s this idea, especially in the story, of Black trying to project this idea of masculinity. But as his life slows down you get to see that he’s just sitting there. When he actually talks to someone, he can’t hide all this shit that’s very deep down.
I listen to chopped and screwed every day."
