You might say Jon Dixon has come out of nowhere with his new Want It EP. You might say that, but you’d be wrong. The Detroit musician has been a part of Underground Resistance’s TIMELINE project (the 2011 Graystone Ballroom EP) and EPs like Fly Free have elicited comparisons to acts like Los Hermanos. He’s performed on the keys on FunkinEvil’s “After Dusk” (Wild Oats) and remixed Radio Slave’s Vision for Rekids.
This is not the resume of a man who came from nowhere, but it is the CV of a guy that’s about to be everywhere. Jon Dixon’s Want It is yet another indicator for the persuasive argument that Detroit is producing more top-tier soulful house tracks than any other city on the planet right now. The vocals of Dames Brown and Amp Fiddler are stunning in both performance and production – he has never sounded better – and top editors including Waajeed have signed off with beautifully rendered remixes.
