New Jersey’s Jamal Dixon spent his early days engrossed in New York’s club scene, working at the legendary Tunnel, all while frequenting Timmy Regisford’s Shelter parties. He eventually earned his own residencies at APT and 205 and is now a head-turning techno producer who since 2020 has landed on labels such as Rhythm Section, Bastard Jazz, and Nylon Traxx. As his new single ‘The Cause’ drops on Fat Cat Records with Pleasure Planet, Disruptive Pattern Material and Tyler Pope remixes, DMCWorld goes back to mine with Jamal Dixon.
