Tribute to the Soul We Lost

I Can't Kick This Feeling When It Hits

 

 
An outspoken voice in the normally non-confrontational world of electronic dance music, Moodymann (given name: Kenny Dixon Jr.) is committed to keeping a distinctly black imprint on techno and house. While he may frustrate people with his refusal to be interviewed and insistence on reminding people of the genre's origins, the soulfulness of his output is unquestioned.  Utilizing classic soul and jazz samples, low-slung bass lines and an approach to drum programming that is diametrically opposed to the tendency to push the tempo faster and faster, he has achieved classic status thanks to gems like "Sunday Morning," "Shades of Jae," and his remix of Innerzone Orchestra's "People Make the World Go Round."  Following years of 12" only releases, he compiled his best work on A Silent Introduction, one of the most celebrated albums of the late 90s.
