Review: Dixon – Temporary Secretary edits

Artist: Dixon/Ben Klock/Junior Boys/Precious System/Code 718
Title: Temporary Secretary (Dixon edits)
Label: Innervisions
Genre: Deep House
Format: 12″, Digital

Deep house type Dixon from Berlin’s Innervision’s crew has been dominating musical proceedings of late. Temporary Secretary, his first foray into mixes since the 2007 contribution to the Body Language series, has rightfully been critically lauded across the board (including on these here pages) for its take apart and put back together approach and stands apart from a sea of somewhat one dimensional mixes released this year.

Additionally, Dixon’s sublime reimagination of Lykke Li’s Dance Dance Dance which has set closer writen all over it, finally got released on all too limited vinyl and is likely to secure him space on the end of year lists that everyone likes to make.

A musical cherry on the Dixon pie is offered up by Innervison in the shape of three edits from the Temporary Secretary mix. Those familiar with the mix will need no further incentive to add these edits to their collection but the unfamiliar should read on.

It’s a exercise in futility to narrow down the release to one definitive highlight as all three edits are of the highest quality. Henrik Schwarz’s Equinox remix is given a hypnotic makeover that builds from a bouncing bassline into a pitter patter of pads and epic synths until the piano is dropped in. The clattering drum workout on Ben Klock’s mashup with Precious System demonstrates that deep house can contain funk whilst Dixons take on Ewan Pearson’s rerub of Junior Boys contains enough starry eyed melodies to drown in.
