Social Studies presents: Moodymann フォトギャラリー
Hard to put into words what's going to happen this September 20th. One thing is for certain, it will be unforgettable.
Kenny Dixon Jr. is not only Detroit's most picturesque Artist, he is also one of the most enigmatic and charismatic figures that House Music ever bred. A skilled DJ behind the turntables and dance music's most entertaining character when he gets on that microphone. Despite his refusal to give interviews and play the press-and-promo game, Kenny’s voice has been clearly amongst the loudest, when it comes to preserving the rich heritage of Afro-American music, all while fighting the music industry powers that be. Always opinionated and yet always telling the truth. The voice of a Detroit that links the past to it current future. Blessed with an immaculate way of sampling, he takes stems from blues and soul, and respectfully takes them onto the next level. A lover of the MPC. He is Soul, Jazz, Funk, House, Techno. Often all these things blended together. From his dark and dusty deep house tunes on Peacefrog, Planet E and his own KDJ label, to his more recent outings on the r&b-drenched Mahogani Music imprint as well as his 2009 sure-fire anthem "Freaky MF", Moodymann's fingerprint has stayed unmistakable. Even a so-called techno tune like "Dem Young Sconies" sounds like nothing and nobody else on this planet. You can't kick this feeling when it hits!
And while he claimed on that epic Red Bull Music Academy Lecture not to be "the hottest DJ in the world" he "will give you the truth on them turntables."
We can't wait. There's lessons to be learned because "It is not what you do, it's how you do it".
On that note, Just come and enjoy yourselves. After All, this is the music we love.
