For his new self-titled release on his own Mahogani Music imprint, Moody moves away the deep soulful grooves that made his name and instead focuses on creating a new sound that, while retaining the breaks and drum machines that are his trademark, is now coloured with live instrumentation and Kenny's delightfully sleazy croon.
This is Moody's take on soul, so expect dark hypnotic melodies coupled with his signature chopped-up vocal tics, pulsing hardware synths and delightfully warped stories from his native home of Detroit. Guests include Jose James, Amp Fiddler and regular compatriot Andres, but Moodymann is the true star here, and long may he shine. (Mahogani Music)
