Moodyman - Live on Giles Peterson's Worldwide - 11th Oct 2007

This post is via

Detroit house legend Kenneth Dixon Jr. (a.k.a. Moodymann), an outspoken voice in the world of electronic dance music, has made an exclusive appearance last week on Gilles Peterson's BBC Radio 1 show.

In his first-ever UK radio interview, Dixon talks about Detroit, music business, records, skating and more. Judging by the actual interview he seems like a very down-to-earth guy. Here's our favorite quotes:

"People pay too much attention to damn DJ, you know, but the talent is sitting on the turntables, you know."

"If you're looking for a hot DJ I'm probably the wrong person to call."

"There's only three things going to happen in Detroit. You're either going to sell or make cars, you're going to be a musician or you're going to be on drugs. There ain't too much in between that. You know, that's for a male. For female it would probably be prostitution."
