Moodymann – Ol’ Dirty Vinyl review

Ol’ Kenny brings the goods yet again with Ol’ Dirty Vinyl, a five-track EP released on his own KDJ imprint. Mixing the bizarre with the brilliant is of course the norm for the Detroit legend (check out his Red Bull Music Academy interview if you don’t believe us), and so it proves with this EP.

Things get underway with the title track, one hell of a raw jam with a jacking beat, delicate keys, and a drum machine which drifts off before bringing it home with one more kick. “We Don’t Care” sees Kenny on vocal duties, a timely reminder that he could read out the menu at a takeaway fried chicken store and make it sound sexy. Recorded in the late 90s with Pitch Black City on the sax and piano, it still sounds totally current. “No Feedback” rounds off the three track a-side with another raw slice of deep house that sound like it was recorded in Kenny’s basement.

On the flip, “It’s 2 Late 4 U And Me” – which possibly shows Moodymann’s secret love for text message lingo –  was features Amp Fiddler on keys and Bubs Fiddler on bass, and was recorded in London last year. The final tune, “The Hacker”, which Kenny admits in the sleeve notes he “doesn’t remember” making, brings the EP to a close with an ambient buzz.
