Boomkat Product Review:
Kenny Dixon Jr's 'Forevernevermore' was his third album and is perhaps his definitive opus - a pure, deep, late night Detroit classic that has birthed countless immitations since its release in 2000.
It really is pretty definitive - and it holds up beautifully almost 20 years later, from his take on Chic's 'Don't you want my love' to 'The thief that stole my sad days' - there are just too many certified classics here to mention. Quite apart from anything else, Forevernevermore manages to sound experimental, sophisticated, fucked and joyous all at once - making reference to classic Piano House one moment, and deepest Techno the next, his vocal narrative offsetting pure euphoria with a sharp dose of Motor City realism.
In terms of classic House music, few have come close to anything you'll find on this album - a perfect distillation of light and shade from one of Detroit's greatest ever.
