Detroit’s Jon Dixon will drop his latest EP, Sampa, on July 6.
Inspired by the music and culture of São Paulo, Sampa features four deep and groovy house cuts that are already picking up steam in the sets of fellow Detroit legends Derrick May and Mark Flash, as well as tastemakers such as Giles Peterson. The EP will land on Dixon's 4EVR 4WRD label, which looks to combine electronic music with jazz, hip-hop, and other styles, as Dixon explains:
"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!”
Ahead of the release, Dixon has offered up a full stream of "Five15," a gorgeous jazz-infused house cut, available via the player below.
