Composer Emile Mosseri’s Band, Human Love Releases ‘Black Void’ EP | Review

Composer Emile Mosseri releases a new album with his band Human Love. Emile has quickly established himself as a singular film composer, raising the proverbial bar with his critically revered scores for THE LAST BLACK MAN OF SAN FRANCISCO and HOMECOMING. Both albums are easily amongst the most artful and enjoyable scores of 2019 and 2020. None other than Afrofuturist super-funkstress powerhouse Janelle Monae mused that she wished Mosseri’s HOMECOMING score was her solo album. 


Emile Mosseri, David Baldwin, Erick Eiser, and Mark Demiglio (formerly known as The Dig) are no strangers to album-craft, but Black Void marks something entirely new. Changing their band’s moniker to Human Love isn’t rebranding, its rebirth.  The Dig was & always will be digable, but the boys of Human Love had the rarified guts to publicly acknowledge they’re no longer the New York kids they once were.


What is human love? How does it feel? What does it sound like? It’s sweet, lush, and forgiving. It’s hypnotic, sensual, and disarming. It’s warm, deep, and groooovy baby. The same goes for the jaw-dropping, siren-like melody that begins Human Love’s debut EP Black Void. On the title track, guest singer Kamilah’s otherworldly voice swoons & beckons like a celestial theremin breaking through golden clouds. From start to finish, Black Void is an elegant uncanny opera of sorts, filled with exquisite hooks, fresh-cut beats, and sultry vocals that will haunt your auditory cortex & cozy up to your subconscious. Needless to say, it’s one hell of a debut.


It’s therefore no surprise that Black Void’s cinematic feels cut deep with radio ready production and hip-shaking rhythm. Highlights include a standout pop-friendly chorus and disco-slick bass line on “Goldmine”, tasty falsetto treats on “Lemon Dove” and a head-nodding synth groove on “Pomona”. Dan the Automator’s masterful production on Deltron 3030, MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular and your favorite Arcade Fire song all come to mind, along with the ghosts of J. Dilla, Ennio Morricone, and your pre-pandemic self. Do yourself a favor. Dive into the Black Void, and enjoy some Human Love.

That score comfortably played with colors from the past — Michael Nyman–like minimalism, French New Wave lyricism, and elegant orchestration — but with the undeniable stamp of an artist who has something to say. It’s the perfect combination for a series with one foot in film-music history, and one in the streaming future. – Vulture
