Detroit's prodigal son Kenny Dixon Jr. aka Moodymann, a bona fide institution at the division of electronic underground between house and techno, adventurous, afro deep and soulful, has just published (self-released as a limited edition through KDJ) a new reference as Moody after a couple of years exploiting the white label format. The mini-LP “Ol’ Dirty Vinyl” contains 5 unreleased tracks rescued from Dixon’s private archives, that run from subdue low belt house, broken nu jazz, Detroit techno-house, experimental electronica with a Radiophonic Workshop flavour, and most surprisingly, a fluke of cosmic metallic post-punk recorded live during The Dirtbombs show (with the very own Mick Collins reciting vocal) in Detroit.
