Presenting Dixon Stovall, for those of you keen on staying ahead of the curve. Get a load of his debut album Da Capo on Heissmusik's new Transcendent Tunes. A Midwest transplant by way of Texas, Dixon caters to the space-laced funk, future-soul music that we drool over underneath fractal stars and thick layers of technicolor dust.
Dixon made an initial splash under the moniker K0DA with the independent release Collage. Shortly after racking up thousands of plays, he immediately began preparing a full-length album for an official label release; thus Da Capo was born.
The album explores an extensive pool of stylistic elements and genre sonics. Imagine a Polish Ambassador and Zoogma sound baby, shredding guitar over an ET synth band in your lucid dreams.
The title track is certainly worthy of representing the album as a whole. A little bit of space-age jazz twisting together with uptempo rhythm sections and a sinister CPU vocal straight out of a “Sweet Shop” flashback, can only sink you deeper into the fascination of what Dixon Stovall has to offer from here on out.
Another gem, “Rope Trick Effect,” brings a mellower flavor with twice as much groove. The guitar chords are dreamy as hell and paired with a simplistic, groovy bass line and bubbling synth pads, you just might dance yourself into a fit of sobbing bliss.
We can only hope that Dixon Stovall blossoms into the limelight so that these tunes can find their way into the ears and hearts of all beloved groove cadets on this wild musical ride of life.
