Stalwort of detroit techno Kenny Dixon Jr (AKA Moodymann) has made his latest LP, 'Picture This', available for free download. The enigmatic, eccentric and often controversial producer serves up 8 exquisite house/techno tracks all completely saturated with funk, soul and jazz. It is clear to see from this most recent offering how Moodyman has been able to transcend into such an iconic figure over the past two decades.
Expertly crafted vocal samples intertwined with irresistible guitar riffs and an insatiable rhythm make 'Got 2 Make It' a real highlight from the collection. 'Pray 4 Love' is a slow and sensual track perfect for laid back listening that unexpectedly leaps in to a disco-ready floor filler, demonstrating Dixon Jr's disregard for convention. The entire LP is a credit to Moodymann's originality and deserves to be listened to from start to finish. It's very rare to come across music of this calibre that won't cost a penny to pick up.
