Pick Of The Week: Moodymann – Telephone EP [Peacefrog]

Kenny Dixon Jr. aka Moodymann is a legend. And not any kind of a legend but a Detroit one. 20 years ago he released Silentintroduction and since then he pushed his gritty sound combining house loops with soul and R&B in tens of releases, most of them on his own imprint, KDJ, or at Peacefrog Records. Speaking of which, the british label started to repress a few of some releases that made history, with Glenn Underground and Gemini brought back to the scene. Between them we find Telephone EP, originally released in 2001.

With that jazzy vibe and raw percussions, Telephone EP perfectly describes Moodymann’s signature sound, hard to confine into a specific genre yet so groovy. The repress is available at Misbits Record Shop, hit this link to make it yours and listen to audio samples.
