Moodymann (Kenny Dixon Jr) is known to be a bit of a ‘man of mystery’. In 2007 Gilles Peterson managed to get him on BBC Radio 1 for his first ever interview, at this stage he’d already been releasing phenomenal music for about 15 years! Crazy! The interview starts about 35 minutes into this recording and is followed by Moodymann hijacking Gilles’ studio to do a wee mix.
He will be hosting a Roller Disco in London 4th March 2010 at the Renaissance Rooms, Wandsworth Road, London SW8 1RZ – 8pm to 2am
“Roller disco culture is a passion for mythical deep house renegade Moodymann. Known for preserving the rich heritage of Afro-American (sub-)culture with the utmost respect, he’s done more to keep the roller disco phenomenon alive than any other human being on the planet with his Detroit regular Soul Skate. For this very special session at South London’s Renaissance Rooms, he’ll not only bring a box full of classic skating rink jams with him, but also ten of the motor city’s most notorious four-wheeled dancers between 8 and 80 years of age. They’ve continuously supported him at the original Soul Skate and will now leave the US, some even for the first time in their lives. Also on the bill: the frontrunners of London’s current disco revival, the infamous Horse Meat Disco. More than just a damn good night out, this is a true tribute to the soul we will never ever lose.” taken from http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com/london/event/?id=9
