Moodymann is the moniker under which Kenny Dixon Jr produces and DJs.
He is a techno/house musician based in Detroit. He has created a
thoroughly hybrid form of techno/house dance music via his innovative
use of reworked riffs, samples and grooves taken from that city’s
historically influential jazz, soul, funk and disco scene. Some call
it cut-up Detroit house.
He offers a friendly wink backwards at the innovative early 1990s rave scene musicians through his extensive use of old movie sound track samples, mainly culled from the old blaxploitation and b-movie genres.
He has been known to DJ behind a screen.
He is one of the 3 Chairs.
