Happiest Here, Moodymann.

Ginuwine Detroit techno is about as hard to come by these days as authentic artistry really although Kenny Dixon Jr., aka Moodymann has contrived to retain his every ability and with it all credibility over a clutch of decades already. Picked up off the A-side to an EP released last month, Why Do U Feel is a subtly emotive house thump combining the crackly static of timeless 12" mix vox with an unsuspecting, if unexpectedly crestfallen backing. The line "You'd be happy somewhere else/ I don't believe it" pretty well sums this one up as if you're looking for something to subduedly shuffle a shoelace to this coming weekend, well, Why Do U Feel should take some bettering.

Why Do U Feel is out now on Moodymann's KDJ label.
