Moodymann infuses this beautiful track by José James with a dose of thumping, jazzy grooves like it’s no-ones business.
To be fair, it really isn’t. Often imitated, but never surpassed, the genius of Kenny Dixon Jr. lies in making everything he touches sound so natural – if Jay Dilla would have produced house music, I’d imagine it wouldn’t sound too dissimilar from what KDJ has achieved.
If you’re unfamiliar with his output, this recent remix is a good example of his style. I highly recommend exploring his vast discography – most of it released through his own KDJ Records and Mahogani Music.
