- Badge Of Honor by Terrence Dixon
Always a joy to get a new release from Detroit’s Terrence Dixon. His Population One 12”s on Reduction this year have been outstanding and that red vinyl ‘Lost At Sea’ 12” on Surface was a belter. The minimalism of the recent Population One output it seems is reserved for that particular alias as these tracks are quite different but no less mesmerizing. As expected there’s some shit hot stuff on here. There’s the Jeff Mills flavoured stuff peppered across the album but what’s striking is how the tracks sound simultaneously futuristic yet at times arcane.
Everything is on point here, the rhythms, the funk, the groove, killer bass lines, great sound palette and so on. It’s not just dancefloor fodder though as here Dixon displays his versatility as a producer with some more experimental electronic pieces which make it work well as an album rather than merely DJ ammo. It really fits in well with the Surface sound too reminding me of the vibes from some of the Oliver Ho records on the label from the late 90’s. Regardless of the artist comparisons it’s unmistakably Dixon’s sound and with 15 tunes to get stuck into this will continue to reward.
