DJ​-​Kicks: Moodymann by Moodymann (2016/02/19)

:: Moodymann is mixing the first DJ-Kicks of 2016!

Following a year that saw the 50th entry in the long-running series released to wide acclaim, DJ-Kicks returns in 2016 another landmark edition. Iconic Detroit DJ and producer Moodymann is at the helm for his first ever multi-artist DJ mix compilation.

Born Kenny Dixon Jr., Moodymann is a one-of-a-kind electronic music icon, hailing from, and wholly synonymous with the Motor City. He is an outspoken, impossibly charismatic artist who has been putting a distinctive and soulful stamp on house and techno since the early 90s.

Melting together jazz, funk, soul, blues and rock in captivating ways, he is responsible for some of electronic music’s most definitive tracks, EPs and LPs on labels like Planet E, Peacefrog and his own KDJ and Mahogani Music imprints. As able to serve up the sweetest and most sensual sounds as he is the darkest and most depraved grooves, his own unique voice and stream of conscious musings infuse expertly sought-out samples for music that is decisively alive and authentic.

Moodymann’s DJ sets are the stuff of legend. Often playing with his face hidden, Dixon eschews ubiquitous hits in favor of bringing the listener into his personal musical environment. He is not afraid to get on the mic, to speak his mind and to go against the grain. His unpredictable, esoteric sets are invariably treasure troves full of musical gems: some familiar, some unheard, and consistently surprising. And that’s what makes him such a perfect fit with DJ-Kicks, a series that invites contributors to indulge their inner most passions for an intimate listening experience.

Across 75 minutes and 30 tracks, Moodymann does not disappoint: despite being a notorious vinyl fetishist, Dixon’s aim is to present music of quality, not to one-up fellow collectors. Rather than serving up ridiculously rare or hard-to-find records, he instead focuses on creating a libidinous, blues-drenched mood that takes in heart-breaking soul, gorgeous hip-hop and love-fuelled house. In addition to cuts from his own creative circle, the mix features 11 exclusive Moodymann edits. Like everything Kenny Dixon Jr. touches, DJ-Kicks showcases the taste, skill, and soul of a dance music original. [via dj-kicks.com]
