Temporary Insanity EP (1-sided 12")
Cat: OUT 018. Rel: 08 Feb 16
Techno
  1. Temporary Insanity (4:36)
  2. Multiple Choice (5:53)
Review: Aside from all the wonderful house music than emanates from the Motor City these days - Omar S, Moodymann and Andres in mind - there aren't many more proper techno artists left in Detroit. That is, of course, apart from Terrence Dixon, who is always sure to provide the most mind-bending arrangements under his own name, and the present Population One moniker. His first EP of 2016 comes on the excellent Out Er label, and "Temporary Insanity" is instantly recognisable as his own, with an ocean twisted chords and sci-fi low tones. "Multiple Choice" is an eerie, alien-like monster of a tune, too, but here Dixon prefers to play with the swarm of melodies and bleeps at his disposal, contorting and transforming them without any fear. Amazing, as per usual.

Techno
  1. Population One - "Code Of Conduct" (5:08)
  2. Population One - "Concrete Playground" (4:34)
  3. Terrence Dixon - "Touching Bass" (4:09)
  4. Terrence Dixon - "The Beholder" (4:24)
Review: It's a good thing that Terrence Dixon wasn't being serious when he announced that he's stopped making music. In this day and age, he is the one true pioneer left in Detroit, and his utterly singular brand of techno is an essential part of our daily existence here at HQ. This time, Dixon returns under his own name and under his most successful alias, Population One, on one split EP for Developer's Modularz label. "Code Of Conduct" and "Concrete Playground" represent the Population One side, the first tune being a subdued kick filled with cavernous space above it while the latter is more classic Population One thanks to those bizarre melodic twists. Dixon serves up "Touching Bass" and "The Beholder" on the flip, two jazzy techno sculptures that are instantly recognizable as his own. Recommended, as always.

Cat: REDUCTION TWO. Rel: 04 Sep 13
Techno
  1. Track 1
  2. Track 2
  3. Track 3
Review: Last year was an uncharacteristically prolific twelve months for Terrence Dixon, putting his name to an impressive range of original and reissued material for the likes of Thema, Knotweed Records, Delsin, Harbour City Sorrow, Chronicle and Rush Hour. The centrepiece of Dixon's annus mirabilis was undoubtedly his third album and classic in the making From The Far Future 2 for Tresor, and the momentum built off the back of the Detroit native's activities last year has seeped into what's becoming an equally productive 2013. News of Dixon's decision to launch the Reduction imprint first filtered through last December, although it wasn't until July that the label's debut transmission The Rewriting Of An Expression Into A Simpler Form was released. A second Reduction transmission now arrives in the shape of Reducible Expressions, brandishing three untitled Population One cuts that demonstrate the sort of restraint and obscurity that have made Dixon such a singular figure on Detroit's sonic landscape.

Cat: REDUCTION THREE. Rel: 07 Nov 13
Techno
  1. Track 1
  2. Track 2
  3. Track 3
Review: Terrence Dixon takes it deeper into the realm of Population One on the third Reduction issue which features perhaps his most potent concoctions thus far. Listen to the A Side hogger "Track One" a few times and you can see why Monique Musique approached Actress to remix Dixon earlier this year, there are definite similarities in the way the pair thinks though Terrence is all about ensuring the swaggering alien sounds align with his own distinct rhythmic hypnosis. On the flip "Track 2" sees TD lay down a straight up Detroit star gazer which is essentially a moment's respite before he deviates down the wormhole in his own inimitable fashion on the final lopsided analogue excursion. Perhaps the best Reduction yet?

  1. Track 1 (5:28)
  2. Track 2 (5:05)
  3. Track 3 (5:34)
Review: Everyone in techno knows Terrence Dixon announced plans to retire from production last year, but evidently this intended dotage did not include his output under the Population One name. After an astounding Population One LP for Rush Hour, Dixon returns with a new 12" on the Reduction label brandishing yet another thought-provoking scientific title in A Theory To Where Size Of The Compact Dimension Goes To Zero. If you've been paying attention to Dixon's productions on Reduction you'll know it's abstract techno where the mood veers the curious to the panic-stricken, created in a way that's still light years ahead of everyone else. Fans of that recent Pop One LP for RH might recognise the final track as an alternate version of the buccaneering "Code Urgent".

Techno
  1. Out Of Phase (5:09)
  2. Going In Circles (5:48)
  3. Down The Lodge (5:15)
  4. Detroit City At Night (3:17)
Review: Terrence Dixon first donned the Population One alias for Metroplex two decades ago, and has been a semi-regular contributor to Juan Aktkins' label ever since. Detroit City At Night finds him in fine form, delivering tracks that blend traditional Motor City techno tropes - hissing hi-hats, spacey electronics, and futurist intent - with warmer keys and organ stabs. Naturally, it feels like a classic Metroplex release, with cuts such as "Going In Circles" - built around spacey melody patterns and swirling, sci-fi textures - and "Down The Lodge" ticking all the right boxes. Best of all, though, is closer "Detroit City At Night", an atmospheric combination of gritty Motor City field recordings and dark, Italo-influenced techno grooves.

Giant Robot EP (12" + 1-sided lime marbled vinyl 10")
Cat: MM 011. Rel: 11 Jun 13
Minimal House/Tech House
  1. Self Portrait
  2. Giant Robot
  3. The Guilty Bridge
  4. Tales From The West Side
  5. Self Portrait (Actress remix)
Review: Putting Terrence Dixon and Actress together is always going to elicit a healthy dose of curiosity for anyone that considers themselves a fan of techno music so kudos to Canadian Monique Musique for issuing this release. The Giant Robot sees Dixon conducting matters under his Population One mantle, offering up four tracks spread across one 12", whilst Werkdiscs boss Actress provides a remix which resides on an accompanying yellow marble 10". If you've checked Dixon's work as Population One you know what to expect here; raw and at times minimalist reductions on the Detroit template that still retain a certain chaotic melodicness. The title track is perhaps the best example of this, whilst "The Guilty Bridge" is simply astounding. Actress is in quite satanic form, mangling "Self Portait" in a manner that recalls Jamal Moss at his most playfully deranged - try dropping this one in the dance hall son!

  1. Track 1
  2. Track 2
  3. Track 3
Review: Seeming to have hit a particularly prolific point of late with scores of releases dropping, Terrence Dixon is back once again to kick off the Reduction label with some fittingly restrained techno excursions. The first track is a masterclass in unresolved tension, with nothing but a kick anchoring the pacing pair of synths that fret and fritter around one another in an endless loop and yet sound utterly engrossing from start to finish. "Track 2" has a more diverse sound palette, taking in grainy samples and letting a decidedly electronic hat tick away alongside the kick but still the emphasis is on holding back rather than letting go, even if there are ebbs and flows to be had in this particular workout. "Track 3" gets into more bugged out Dixon territory, the jerky nature of the synths within constantly straining against the insistent tick of the hat for a positively woozy end result.

I Program My Computer Right (transparent green vinyl 12")
Cat: HCSGREEN 994. Rel: 12 Sep 12
Leftfield
  1. A Cosmic Display Of Beauty
  2. Computer Rights
  3. Octagon
  4. March On
Review: Holland's Harbour City Sorrow snaps up Detroit's Population One aka Terrence Dixon. The label heads continue to impress with their fine selection of artists and crafty tracks and their seventh release is an all-out house jewel. Terrence kicks things off with "A Cosmic Display Of Beauty", a fascinating shuffle through aquatic synths and crystal melodies but things really get going on the title track, where a warm bassline swallows up the messy bric-a-brac of percussion which moves fanatically next to the addictive 'I Program My Computer Right' vocals. Over on the flip, "Octagon" is a ravey, nu-skool Detroit piece which confuses and surprises with its alignment of haunting melodies and a bouncy synth bass. Lastly, "March On" moves steadily forward with a progressive beat which rapidly transforms into a mechanical machine workout. There are also a limited number of transparent green copies for ya!

  7. My Own Shadow
  8. All Of A Sudden
Review: Terrence Dixon's announcement of plans to retire from techno with immediate effect earlier this year have typically gone without any further explanation, though it's been heartening to see his final round of projects surface over the course of 2014. Having already committed a killer Population One 12" to Metroplex, Dixon delivers another fitting parting shot in this LP for Rush Hour, who took their name from his classic Pop One production "Rush Hour". Theater Of A Confused Mind is a powerful statement from Dixon, expanding on the sci-fi themes of previous Population One material and posing several cryptic questions. Dixon's own voice introduces the album on "Out Of Control" and as matters progress those trademark queasy lines of melody begin to take control - "Inner City Circus" being a stand out of this set.
