Dixon Temporary Secretary
Though it's probably the most incongruous track on Dixon's first official mix album since Body Language, Vol. 4, Fever Ray's "If I Had a Heart" nevertheless provides an aesthetic and thematic foundation for the tracks that follow in its wake. Deployed near the beginning of this carefully constructed mix, the song's vaguely tribal, low-key menace underscores similar resonances in the likes of Kiki's "Good Voodoo (Visionquest Remix)," the Daphni version of Cortney Tidwell's "Watussi," and the artful juxtaposition of Precious System's "The Voice From Planet Love" and Ben Klock's "In a While." Temporary Secretary is enthralling and beautifully paced.
