Today we premiere some jazz soaked house from Jon Dixon, with vocals from Detroits own Kenny Watson. Glistening soulful house music never goes out of fashion, and Jon Dixon latest EP on 4EVR 4WRD captures jazz submerged house at its purest.
Jon Dixon’s latest EP, Vocal Sessions Vol.1 is comprised of two original deep house jams featuring Detroit vocalists L’Renee and Kenny Watson, as well as a remix by Jimpster and an edit by Jon under his MinorInvention alias. Released on vinyl as well as digital on September 9th, the digital version will include the Brixton Remix as a bonus track.
Jon Dixon is one of the city’s most sought-after musicians for every genre ranging from jazz to techno. He believes that the more versatile and open minded you are at your craft, the further it will take you. In 2015 he started an independent label, 4EVR 4WRD (Forever Forward) to focus on making electronic music fused with elements of jazz, hip hop and other styles of music.
Jon has had the opportunity to not only lead the Underground Resistance live acts Galaxy 2 Galaxy and Timeline, but has also performed with Interstellar Fugitives, Amp Fiddler, Jeff Mills, Mike Banks, Francesco Tristano, Carl Craig, Goldie and more.
“I feel that it is important for me as a musician to not only continue the rich culture and history of both jazz and electronic music but to also use my knowledge, theory and experience to combine the two and take both genres to the next level!”
Dixon’s and Kenny Watson’s collaboration is coruscating deep house in its slickest and purest form. Deep and winding bass lays the foundation for sparkling jazz influenced strings and diminished grooves. Watson’s vocals are deep, eloquent and profoundly Detroit. This is irresistible house music, for purist’s, novices and those who simply appreciate good music.
