kenny dixon jr. aka moodymann has emerged as one of detroit’s
most enigmatic and most successful house producers.
perfecting a unique blend of samples and original
instrumentation kdj’s music is different and original than
typical house. drenched in soul, funk and jazz kdj gathers the
full force of his musical influences and recontextualizes them
within the house music genre. his material ranges from the slow
and moody to the up beat and energetic. another quality label
that keeps the spirit of good soulful house music alive.
the mysterious moodymann began his production career in the
early ’90s, and set up his independent label kdj records in 1994
with the first release being the moody trax ep and then

following up with the great and now classic releases like “the
day we lost the soul” which is a tribute to one of kdj’s hero’s
marvin gaye. “i can’t kick this feeling when it hits”, “don’t be
misled”, “forevernevermore”, “dem young sconies”ep and many
more. dixon is also part of the ‘3 chairs’, a collaboration of four
of detroit’s heavyweight house producers – theo parrish, kenny
dixon jr and rick wilhite. these guys have been working together
on many projects over the past few years and all sharing the
ability to produce their unique gritty soul, jazz, blues sound. in
the late ’90s, they released a pair of 12″s that were billed as 3
chairs, with each track being credited individually – it was when
malik pittman was added to the group in 2003 on the release “all
over”, they began crediting the tracks to the whole crew.

while he may frustrate people with his refusal to be interviewed
and his insistence on reminding people of the genre’s origins, it
is a certainty that his music is ground breaking, and the
brilliance of his unique underground sound appeals to all ears
weather they be black, white, yellow, the result is the same:
soulful personal music from the heart.
