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.
If you missed our advice last week, we remind you Moodyman is one of the latest additions to the Sónar Barcelona line-up. Get your tickets here.
